We now have ImPACT testing available!
ImPACT (Immediate Post-Concussion Assessment and Cognitive Testing) is a computerized brain injury measurement tool for children and teens that have sustained a concussion. This tool can help us determine when it is safe for a child or teen to return to school and sports after a head injury or concussion.
A baseline test is recommended for children 5 years and older to provide a set of baseline results that can then be used to compare to post-injury (head trauma/concussion) results.
The ImPACT test takes approximately 25-30 minutes to complete on a computer in our office.
While any child would benefit from ImPACT Testing, it is especially useful for children involved in athletics who may have a higher risk of head trauma, concussion or traumatic brain injury.
