Baseline Testing at Banner Concussion Center
This season, AYSA has been very pleased to establish parntership with the Banner Concussion Center (BCC) in Phoenix. BCC is a recognized leader in the area of providing concussion education, awareness, prevention and treatment. Part of this process is to have players tested prior to receiving a concussion, this is called Baseline Testing.
AYSA TEAMS ARE SETTING THE STANDARD WITH CONCUSSION BASELINE TESTING
Baseline testing takes approximately 30 minutes and then provides Doctors with a starting-point to treat athletes who suffer from a concussion. When taken prior, a Baseline Test can point Doctors in the direction and path to the best treatment solution(s) for an athlete.
This week, members of the Phoenix Rush (Pictured above) visited the Banner Concussion Center to perform these tests. Now, should any of these players suffer a concussion, their Baseline Test will assist in their treatment!
Testing is very in-expensive and provides incredibly useful information. Many AYSA clubs have contacted BCC to learn more. If you would like to learn more about how you can have your team/club tested, please contact Bryce Nalepa of the Banner Concussion Center at: (602) 839-7285, or visit their website by clicking here.
