Baseline Concussion Testing using the ImPACT™ system
Head injuries are on the rise for all athletes at all levels of play. An estimated 4 to 5 million concussions occur annually, with increases emerging among middle school athletes. ImPACT™ is in use by many teams in MLB, NHL, NFL, more than 7,400 high schools and over 1,000 colleges and universities. The ImPACT™ system is the most-widely used and most scientifically validated computerized concussion evaluation system.
Our Baseline Test Includes:
A Neuropsychological Assessment
Your unique “brain fingerprint”
A Thorough Review
Baseline review by Dr. Martin Molina at Texas Family Physicians – ImPACT Certified.

Because head injuries are never minor, we recommend:
Athletes who are not fully recovered from an initial concussion are significantly vulnerable for recurrent cumulative and even catastrophic consequences of a second concussion.
Athletes should NOT return to sports or other at-risk participation when symptoms of a concussion are present and recovery is ongoing.

Frequently Asked Questions
My child has had a persistent headache for weeks now, what can I do?
There may be several reasons for this such as dehydration, sinus and or allergy concerns, migraine, lack of sleep and of course injury to the brain such as a concussion. I would advise if a headache is persisting, that it be evaluated by a physician or provider to better review symptoms in order to provide a differential diagnosis.
