Baseline Testing and Concussion Treatment
The scientific community is just starting to recognize the severity of CTE (concussion syndrome) and the consequences of too many hits to the head. At COAST we offer baseline testing and post-concussion treatment.
Baseline testing measures an athlete’s response times and other markers of a concussion before they sustain one. Having this base, if the athlete does get injured, the test can be re-administered to get an accurate reading on the damage done and on recovery.
If a concussion has already been suffered, athletes can receive treatment to reduce the severity of side effects in our Huntington Beach clinic. We offer state of the art cryotherapy treatments that have been shown to minimize brain swelling in these types of injuries. By reducing the swelling, we are able to reduce or prevent lasting damage and speed recovery.
