Safety for our children is one of our highest priorities as parents, coaches, and as teachers.
There are frequent reports of children and young adults sustaining head injuries and concussion that can result in long-term health issues. How do we know the health of our children’s brain? How do we know when it is safe to return to normal or sports related activities?
A few of the critical questions that need to be asked about a child’s or young adult’s safety and health are:What was their brain health prior to the injury? How bad was the injury or how bad was the concussion? How well is the healing process progressing? When will it be safe to resume play or normal activities again? What do we do now that an injury has occurred? What about future injuries?
Baseline testing is now available with Clear Edge Brain Health Assessment. Experts are recommending that young athletes test and assess their brain health prior to beginning sports or even as part of a yearly wellness checkup. The test establishes a baseline assessment of cognitive or thinking ability, balance and coordination, and brain function along with documentation of any symptoms and their severity.
With Clear Edge testing, results can be compared yearly or after a fall or injury to verify recovery process and to determine when it is safe to return to normal activities and play.
Head impacts and concussions are one of the most common sports related injuries and it is estimated that there will be 1.8 to 3.2 million concussions among children and adolescents this year. Education, diagnosis and follow-up care is critical. Now we are able to easily and reliably test the health of the brain--cognitive function, balance and coordination, along with symptoms.
