Baseline Concussion Testing
At MedStar Franklin Square Medical Center, our physicians recommend athletes take a baseline neurocognitive assessment as part of a pre-participation physical exam.
If you play sports, it is valuable to have baseline test results on file in the event of a concussion. Baseline test results can be compared to post-injury test results and help clinicians determine the extent of any injuries and when normal activity can be safely resumed.
We can administer baseline testing on-site for individuals. For groups or teams, we can arrange testing at a convenient, nearby location.
To schedule baseline testing, please call 443-777-7900.
MedStar Sports Medicine specialists use the results of post-concussion testing to develop an individualized concussion management program to monitor and track your recovery. The post-concussion program provides a state-of-the-art, medically based plan with clear guidelines to support timely and safe return-to-play and appropriate accommodations for school or work.
