Dr. Crawford recommends pre-season ImPACT™ cognitive testing for young athletes because it can help a physician decide when – or if – it is safe for youngsters to return to play after a concussion. Pre-season testing provides a baseline for comparison purposes should a child be injured.
Some schools offer testing as a standard part of the school’s athletic program. If your child’s school does not, Summa Health Sports Medicine can administer the test. To make a same day/next day appointment, call 330.835.5533.
