Concussion Assessment and Treatment
Physiotherapy Associates of Port Perry is pleased to announce our new concussion assessment and treatment program. We are currently providing IMPACT baseline testing. The base line test is a computerized neurocognitive assessment which becomes part of the baseline and post-injury assessment protocols. This type of testing provides us with a snapshot of how an athlete’s brain is functioning both pre and post injury by measuring things like reaction time, processing speed, memory, and attention/concentration. These cognitive processes are often affected by concussive injury, and so this type of testing provides us with important objective information when managing an athlete’s recovery. The baseline assessment in isolation is not a diagnostic tool or an intellectual tool, but an important outcome measure to assess change.
