Baseline Concussion Testing

The MedStar Sports Medicine Concussion Program recommends athletes take a baseline neurocognitive assessment as part of a pre-participation physical exam.

If you play sports, it makes sense to have baseline test results on file in the event of a concussion. The MedStar Sports Medicine Concussion Program uses ImPACT testing, which is a computerized program that evaluates how a brain functions. Baseline test results can be compared to post-injury test results and help clinicians determine the extent of any injuries and when normal activity can be safely resumed.

Post-Concussion Testing

MedStar Sports Medicine specialists use the results of post-concussion testing to develop an individualized concussion management program to monitor and track your recovery. The post-concussion program provides a state-of-the-art, medically based plan with clear guidelines to support timely and safe return-to-play and appropriate accommodations for school or work.
