Prevention and treatment of concussions
At the PTA Center, we do important prevention work in this area and offer a variety of services related to Concussions, Concussion Protocol, Concussion Management, and Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE).
Among other things, we use the same software for this purpose that is also used in professional leagues such as the NFL. The corresponding online tests are designed for people between the ages of 12 and 80 and can be completed from the comfort of your own home. In addition, there is the possibility of presence or online lectures for players, coaches, supervisors and professionals.
The ImPACT Baseline online test is taken by each player once a year. This is especially effective in keeping cognitive skills, which can be affected by concussions, up to date. Post-injury testing occurs immediately after a potential injury to diagnose any cognitive impairments. In addition, we offer thorough cervical spine exams by specialized physical therapists at the PTA Center.
Our online testing is a scientifically validated tool that provides important, supportive data as part of the diagnostic process. If a concussion is present, we are happy to support you with information, comprehensive sports medicine treatment and, of course, the return-to-play process.
