Peak Performance Physical Therapy offers baseline concussion testing. Baseline testing prior to experiencing a concussive event can offer earlier and more accurate identification of a concussion, especially in the pediatric populations.

Peak Performance sets itself apart from other baseline tests by utilizing state-of-the-art technology and employing concussion specialists who will provide extensive education about the mechanism and pathophysiology of concussions, symptoms, and management.

Vestibular Ocular Motor Screen (VOMS)

The VOMS is a screening tool that detects symptoms associated with use of the vestibular and ocularmotor systems. These systems are responsible for integrating balance, vision, and movements. These processes are commonly disrupted after concussions and become triggers to symptom exacerbation.

RightEye™ Ocularmotor Examination

90% of concussions result in eye-movement dysfunction. RightEye™ Neurovision eyetracking measures and analyzes your eye movement, brain processing and reaction time against peers, amateurs and pro athletes.

Standardized Assessment of Concussion (SAC)

The SAC is a brief cognitive screen that targets concentration, orientation, immediate memory, and delayed memory.

Balance Error Scoring System (BESS)

The Balance Error Scoring System provides an objective method of assessing static postural stability. The BESS can be used to assess the effects of mild head injury on static postural stability using various conditions to bias the vestibular, visual, and proprioceptive systems.

Baseline testing also includes extensive education on concussion management for the patient, parents, and coaches.

Baseline tests are $65 and these funds go directly to the Dylan Steigers Concussion Project Non-profit organization. Sessions last 40-60 minutes.
