6 Step Concussion Evaluation

The NeuroSport™ research-based 6 step concussion evaluation allows our board-certified neurologists to evaluate functions in specific areas of the brain and body, such as motor, cognitive and sensory functions, eye movements, cranial nerves, balance, and gait. The data reveals areas of the brain that have been affected by the concussion, which then helps us develop a targeted concussion evaluation plan.

Athletes undergo a concussion history and neurocognitive examination interview by a board-certified neurologist. In the event of a concussion, our board-certified experts reassess these functions post-injury and compare the results with the initial baseline scores. These comparisons allow us to devise the most suitable concussion evaluation solutions.

Neurocognitive testing: Includes computer tests that accurately measure core elements of cognition, such as short-term memory, reasoning, attention, and verbal ability.

We utilize a high-performance device that uses virtual reality to assess abnormal eye movement.

A standardized concussion treatment protocol is used to obtain a comprehensive baseline for the patient. In the event of a concussion, a post-concussion balance testing program, Balance Error Scoring System, is applied to assess any changes.

We utilize a 3D simulator that measures moment-to-moment reaction time, acceleration, speed, and distance traveled. It also tests stamina, balance, coordination, reaction time, visual perception, and mobility for improved performance, safety, and confidence.

A neurofeedback therapy assessment analyzes the electrical activity of the brain to measure and display patterns that correspond to brain health.

Effects of Sports Concussions Can Last a Lifetime

If you or someone you love plays contact sports, they have a 100% risk exposure to brain damage that could manifest throughout their life. As athletes become increasingly bigger, faster, and stronger, we see an alarming increase in the number of reported concussions. The latest research indicates that between 1.6M – 3.8M concussions in sports occur annually.

For the last fifty years, parents, doctors, and coaches have not developed a system to prevent and track concussions, putting athletes at risk of long-term effects of concussion. Furthermore, athletes often return to play without making a full concussion recovery, putting themselves at risk for second impact syndrome – a life-threatening brain injury.

NeuroSport™ Mission

The NeuroSportmission is to keep athletes of all ages playing the sports they love without risking the lifelong, debilitating effects of head injuries. We also actively promote the awareness and education of concussion prevention and management among athletes, coaches, trainers, and parents.

If our board-certified neurologists determine the athlete can “Return to Play,” NeuroSport™ will provide medical clearance as defined by the Sports Medicine Advisory Committee of each state. This will allow the athlete to immediately return to the playing field.

The “Return to Play” examination will provide athletes with a baseline reference in the diagnosis, treatment, and management of future head trauma or potential brain health risks.
