You may also want to schedule a baseline concussion testing for an additional $15.
Concussions are traumatic head injuries that occur from both mild and severe blows to the head. They are not only associated with professional athletes but also with school and recreational youth sports. While a standard sports physical is required by nearly all school and youth sports leagues, this will not provide doctors with important information about a child’s cognitive abilities should a concussion occur. A baseline concussion test will provide physicians with valuable information to use if a child suffers a concussion.
The Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommends that every child playing a sport get a pre-season test of "normal" brain function (known as the ImPACT test). This pre-concussion test helps to establish a baseline of the child's normal cognitive brain function which can later be used to compare to a post-concussion test, should an injury occur during a sport. This neurocognitive test is recognized nationwide and adopted by the NFL, NHL and Broward County schools.
