The only way to determine if you have completely recovered from a concussion is to test your physical and cognitive function before you have a concussion.

Boston Associates Rehabilitation (BAR) is using ImPACT Applications, Inc., King- Devick Oculomotor test and the Balance Error Scoring System (BESS) test as part of a baseline testing program.  The purpose of these specific tests is to establish and record a baseline of cognitive (brain function), oculomotor (eye movement), and balance abilities.  In the event that your child sustains a suspected concussion (mild TBI) or other traumatic brain injury (TBI), the baseline results can be compared with your child’s performance following injury.  This comparison allows for identifying any change in cognitive (brain function), oculomotor (eye movement), and/or balance abilities, which is an important tool in developing a concussion management program.  Boston Associates Rehabilitation offers the following two packages for concussion base line testing:
