Concussion is a functional injury to your brain that can disorganize your neural pathways leading to symptoms such as:
- Head ache
- Memory loss
- Mental fog
- and more
Every concussion is different, which is why baseline concussion testing is important. By getting a baseline test, your physician can more accurately assess the severity of your injury in the event of a concussion. Baseline tests allow your physician to compare what is normal for you to your post injury tests enabling them to recommend a course of treatment that best fits your individual needs.
To find out more about baseline concussion testing, or to schedule a test with Dr. Stephanie Aldret, call 337-993-9770.
