A concussion is a traumatic brain Injury. Put simply, a concussion changes the way our brain functions, causing it to work less optimally. It may be caused either by a direct blow to the head, face, neck or elsewhere on the body with an “impulsive” force transmitted to the head. You do not have to hit your head to have a concussion. A Concussion may or may not involve loss of consciousness. Symptoms can start immediately or after a period of time.
If the only thing you are doing to manage your concussion is laying in a dark room and hoping it gets better, you have unfortunately been given poor advice, There is a better Solution.

Prevention is key. A Baseline test is a battery of test performed on a non-injured individual in order to create a health record of their brain and cognitive function pre-injury. In the unfortunate event of head injury, we can use these pre-injury results to help determine when an individual has fully recovered.
