Concussion Baseline Testing

Concussion is a very serious condition. Most often it occurs in contact sports, however it can also happen in everyday life and non-contact sports. The are many symptoms of concussion, these may include:

If you are concerned about having a concussion and you need to return to sport, you need to be managed the right way in order to safely return to sport. There are very specific guidelines for concussion management and these are there to protect you from sustaining more serious injury on your return to sport.

The Physio Bunker also does concussion baseline testing. This involves testing you using a specific concussion testing protocol prior to you commencing your sports season. Then, if you sustain a concussion injury, we will use your baseline score to guide us and help determine when you have returned to your pre-concussion state. We do this for individuals and for whole sports teams. 

If you or your sports team require treatment or baseline testing for concussion, get in touch with us today to chat about organising this. Email and we will work with you and your requirements.
