Concussion management is vital for athletes and anyone else who has sustained one in their lifetime. A concussion is a brain injury caused by acceleration or deceleration of the brain within the skull following a significant impact to the head. The impact causes a biochemical imbalance within the brain cells. This results in decreased blood flow and temporary energy deficits within the brain.
MYo Lab is recognized by Complete Concussion Management (CCM). From initial pre-season baseline testing to concussion treatment and rehabilitation, our recognized CCM practitioners collaborate with primary care physicians to co-manage concussions, helping patients and athletes safely return to learn, work, and play.
Concussion Baseline Testing
Baseline testing is a series of physical and cognitive tests that provides a pre-injury overview of healthy brain function. These tests can offer healthcare practitioners with an objective benchmark on which to compare should a patient sustain a concussion. As concussion symptoms often disappear days to weeks before the brain has recovered, having valuable baseline information may help practitioners to make safer return to play decisions.
All Chiropractors at MYo Lab specialize in the management and treatment of both acute concussion and post concussion syndrome through the Complete Concussion Management protocols individualized to your needs.
