Additional Testing:

Binocular Vision Screen

It is estimated that 25%of the population has an undiagnosed binocular vision problem that can either affect athletic performance, academics or both. Current concussion research has also demonstrated that those with binocular vision problems are also more vulnerable to complications from head shots and/or concussions. For this reason we include a functional binocular vision screen in our baseline and post concussion management testing. The screen is done through a combination of a written questionnaire and computerized testing of the eyes. If problems are found in our screen, clients will be referred out to an eye specialist who can better evaluate the root cause of the problem and render treatment to eliminate the dysfunction.

Oculomotor Evaluation

Oculomotormeans eye movement. An oculomotor evaluation tests and measures how and when an individual’s eyes move in response to images, light, moving objects and head motion.

Not only does this serve as an important aspect of baseline information but problems with this aspect of function pre-dispose individuals to problematic recovery from a concussion.

If problems are found during the evaluation, appropriate referral and/or treatment can be given.

Vestibular Evaluation

Vestibular testing helps to determine if there is something wrong with the vestibular (balance) portion of the inner ear. These tests especially in combination with Occulomotor testing provide important baseline information in pre-concussion testing. In addition problems with vestibular function can predispose individuals to more severe concussions. If problems are found, appropriate referral and/or treatment can be given.

Musculoskeletal Testing

Whiplash and cervical spine dysfunction can also mimic and/or complicate concussion.

A spinal and postural evaluation is done both as a protocol of baseline testing and post concussion examination. Integrated into the post concussion testing we include vestibular and vestibular-ocular testing.
