What is Baseline Testing?
Baseline testing is typically performed before an individual participates in activity. Baseline testing is comprised of computerized assessments that measure reaction time, memory capacity, speed of mental processing, and executive functioning of the brain. Having an estimate of the individual’s functioning prior to an injury helps the healthcare provider more accurately determine the extent of the injury and an appropriate treatment plan.
The Saint Francis Center for Sports Medicine in Walnut Creek is offering FREE baseline concussion screening during the months of July and August for youth athletes ages 12 and up.
Our free baseline screening provides results that can be used to compare reaction times and help guide your return to play following a concussion. This test is intended for baseline testing only and for athletes who are symptom-free.
