A concussion is a neurologic injury that causes a temporary disturbance in brain cells, as a result of extreme acceleration or deceleration of the brain within the skull. The initial brain cell discharge creates an imbalance within the cells of the brain, that ultimately leads to an energy deficit as the cells franticly use up all of their energy stores to reset the normal balance. The major problem with concussion is that symptoms, meaning how someone feels, does not coincide with the energy levels in the brain. Most people feel better long before their brain has recovered to the point that they are actually safe to return to their sport. Unfortunately, there is no scan, MRI, or X-ray that can detect a concussion. This is where the benefits of baseline testing come in as the most important step to towards proper concussion management. A baseline test measures areas of brain function that could become affected following a concussion. If and when an athlete sustains a concussion, we can compare their post-injury state to their baseline parameters to ensure:
An accurate diagnosis is made
The affected brain area is determined
Safe return to sport
Complete brain recovery *** A second concussion prior to full recovery of the first may cause long-term or cumulative brain damage. Without a baseline test, clinicians cannot determine brain recovery.
