Pre-season Baseline Testing for Youth Athletes
2:00 PM
Playfair Park Pavilion (behind Splash Montana)
Description:
Alpine Therapists and UMPT student volunteers will be conducting free baseline screenings for Missoula youth athletes and providing parents with documentation that can be added to the athletes medical records, giving their primary care provider a more comprehensive picture when a concussion is suspected.

What is a baseline test?
Preseason baseline tests are used to assess an athlete’s balance and brain function as well as for the presence of any concussion symptoms. Results from baseline testing are used if an athlete has a suspected concussion during the season. Comparing post-injury test results to baseline test results can assist health care professionals in identifying the effects of the injury and making more informed return to school and play decisions.
