Has your youth athlete had an ImPACT baseline test done? 

One of the best things an athlete can do is to undergo ImPACT (Immediate Post-Concussion Assessment and Cognitive Testing) baseline testing before suffering a concussion, because it shows the athlete’s normal, healthy level of cognitive function. We can then use that data to help guide the athlete's recovery.

ImPACT baseline testing, which takes only 20 to 25 minutes, tests memory and reaction time, and it is recommended that athletes age 11 to 14 repeat the test every six months, while athletes ages 15 to 18 should undergo testing every 12 months. 

ImPACT provides computerized neurocognitive assessment tools and services to determine an athlete's ability to return to play after suffering a concussion. Athletes can receive an ImPACT baseline test without insurance or co-pay for $25. Please contact our office at 617-355-3501 to make an appointment or to ask about our group rate.
