A concussion is a brain injury, caused by rapid movement of the brain within the skull. This can be caused by an impact to the head or to the body.
This impact causes chemical changes within the brain cells, resulting in decreased blood flow and a temporary decrease in energy within the brain. Symptoms may include loss of consciousness, headache, pressure in the head, neck pain, nausea, vomiting, dizziness or balance problems, among others.

Multimodal pre-season testing is a series of physical and cognitive tests that provide 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. It is important to remember that not all baseline testing is created equal. Complete Concussions has selected the best evidence-based tools available to provide you with comprehensive, multimodal, proven baseline testing.
As concussion symptoms often resolve days to weeks before the brain has fully recovered, having valuable baseline information may help
practitioners to make safer return to play decisions.
