Pre Concussion screening evaluates your brain’s processing and thinking (cognitive) function, balance, and reaction speed prior to a head injury.
There is no single clinical test that can be done to know when someone has fully recovered from a concussion. In order to know when an athlete has fully recovered, the different areas of the brain that could potentially be affected with a concussion must be assessed, including: balance; strength; reaction time; neurocognitive performance; and visual processing. A baseline concussion test shows how well your brain is currently functioning and may be useful in diagnosing a concussion after an injury
Most concussion symptoms are subjective. The Only validated research is vestibular function and gait analysis and cognitive function. All kids are at risk of concussion, especially those in contact sports. “A concussion happens when there’s a force transmitted to the brain.” If you suspect a concussion, pull the athlete from play and follow up with a health care provider.
Videonystagmography (VNG) – series of tests that evaluate the health of your vestibular (balance portion of inner ear) and your central motor function. VNG testing can help to uncover the root cause of your vertigo, dizziness or balance issues.
