Concussion Testing for Your Kids Can Prevent Problems


The Center for Disease Control ranks concussions second only to auto accidents as the leading cause of childhood injury. Next week, The Center Foundation is holing an impact concussion baseline test for children ages 11 through 17. Matt Stutz is an athletic trainer at The Center: "The impact baseline test is a computerized test that allows us to measure, basically how the childs' brain is performing. In mental tasks, so we'll know that their normal scores are. And then if they sustain a concussion, we're able to then compare their post-concussions to what they were before." Stutz says its a tool to use in gauging their recovery from a head injury. The baseline testing will be at the center on August 29th, September 1st and 2nd, the cost is $10.
