Concussion & TBI Testing

We provide a unique TBI protocol that will objectively identify if there was traumatic brain injury from a recent accident.

 

The main function is our leading diagnostic test which will help determine the nature of impairment and corresponding treatment needed to optimize recovery.

Concussion & TBI Explained

Concussion

A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury—or TBI—caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head or by a hit to the body that causes the head and brain to move rapidly back and forth. This sudden movement can cause the brain to bounce around or twist in the skull, creating chemical changes in the brain and sometimes stretching and damaging brain cells.

TBI

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a nondegenerative, noncongenital insult to the brain from an external mechanical force, possibly leading to permanent or temporary impairment of cognitive, physical, and psychosocial functions, with an associated diminished or altered state of consciousness. Concussions are the most common TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury).

Associated Symptoms

The signs and symptoms of a concussion can be subtle and may not show up immediately. Symptoms can last for days, weeks or much longer.

  • Headache

  • Ringing in the ears

  • Nausea

Physical signs and symptoms
of a concussion may include:

  • Vomiting

  • Fatigue or drowsiness

  • Blurry vision

  • Confusion or feeling as if in a fog

  • Amnesia surrounding the traumatic event

  • Dizziness or “seeing stars”

Other signs and symptoms of a concussion include:

A witness may observe these signs and symptoms in the concussed person:

  • Slurred speech

  • Delayed response to questions

  • Dazed appearance

  • Forgetfulness, such as repeatedly asking the same question

You may have some symptoms of concussions immediately, and some can occur for days after the injury, such as:

  • Concentration and memory complaints

  • Irritability and other personality changes

  • Sensitivity to light and noise

  • Sleep disturbances

  • Psychological adjustment problems & depression

  • Disorders of taste and smell

Symptoms in children

  • Head trauma is very common in young children. But concussions can be difficult to recognize in infants and toddlers because they can’t describe how they feel.
    Concussion clues may include:

  • Dazed appearance

  • Listlessness and tiring easily

  • Irritability and crankiness

  • Loss of balance and unsteady walking

  • Excessive crying

  • Change in eating or sleeping patterns

  • Lack of interest in favorite toys

  • Vomiting

  • Seizures

  • ARE THERE ANY CONTRAINDICATIONS FOR USE?
    The battery of assessments cannot be performed in patients who experience complete vision loss without glasses or hard contacts, since we require removal of these lenses during testing.
  • HOW SOON SHOULD A PATIENT BE TESTED?
    We recommend anytime 72 hours after injury.
  • WHAT IS THE TURNAROUND TIME FOR TEST RESULTS?
    We typically have results within 48-72 hours of test. However, we can get them as early as 24 hours upon request.
  • HOW LONG DOES THE TEST TAKE?
    The full process takes no longer than 30 minutes.
  • GLOSSARY
    Oculomotor: The inability to synchronize visual information with motor and cognitive functions. Vestibular Impairments to the vestibular system: The balance center of the brain – affecting the ability to coordinate head and eye movements. Cognitive-Fatigue: decreased working memory, recall, and reaction time. Becoming distracted or fatigued following prolonged periods of concentration.
