 Complete Concussion Management Program Multimodal Baseline TestingConcussions are an injury to the brain, that may cause long-lasting damage, if not dealt with appropriately. They are a serious issue and require immediate care and attention. Players should follow a managed Return to Play program that includes an exertion test prior to returning to game play. Why is a Baseline Test valuable? 

 Multimodal tests are objective, reliable, evidence-based and provide immediate feedback to the clinician. Without a Baseline, concussion management becomes a symptom-based process which is not objective or in the athlete’s best interest. Objective evaluation provides a higher level of efficiency, precision and safety. Multimodal baselines are recommended by the Ontario Neurotrauma Foundation Paediatric concussion guidelines and supported by 44 research articles. It is recommended for "At Risk Athletes."1. A Multimodal Baseline test provides objective information from healthy athletes prior to receiving a concussion that the clinician can use and compare.2. These tests include balance, reaction time, strength, memory, concentration, visual tracking, processing speed, and provide doctors and clinicians with an indication of how your brain works when healthy.3. In the event of a concussion, athletes are re-tested and results compared in order to ensure proper recovery prior to return to play.4. The testing is eligible for reimbursement through chiropractic benefits.
