Concussions are one the most common forms of traumatic brain injury, which according to the CDC account for more than 140,000 emergency room visits annually in the USA. Realizing the magnitude of this problem and the severity of potential complications, many states have passed sports related concussion laws, which will mandate that school athletics take specific steps in the management of athletes that have sustained concussions. Our office offers baseline ImPACT testing for our patients prior to their participation in athletic programs, which we feel can assist in providing appropriate care should an injury occur at a later date. ImPACT testing can be conveniently scheduled by calling for an appointment. For more information, please visit our Sports Medicine Section.
