The buzzword today in youth athletics is, "concussion". The importance of concussion prevention and management is essential in athletics today. Unfortunately, concussions occur fairly frequently in youth athletics. We offer a program through Concussion Vital Signs to screen athletes and establish the athletes' normal brain statistics. If they are to sustain an impact to the head, we can re-test them and help to determine what deficits they have, what area of the brain was affected, and help the neurologists to determine a course of treatment. We have been working with various sports club teams and coaches to reach out and test the athletes and help coaches on the sidelines to recognize signs and symptoms of concussion injuries. We can test whole teams for a nominal fee. Testing requires approximately 1 hour of time and access to a laptop computer.
