Post-concussion Syndrome (PCS)

The CDC defines a concussion as, “a type of traumatic brain injury,” which may occur with or without a loss of consciousness. In the United States ~300,000 sports related traumatic brain injuries occur per year.

  • Sub-maximal Treadmill Testing
  • Static and Dynamic Balance Assessments
  • Post Exertional Cognitive Evaluations
  • Screening for abnormal eye movements, as well as decreased attention and memory, which may be indicative of suboptimal brain function
  • High level mobility, agility, coordination, and sport specific measures
