Concussion & TBI Testing

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


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.


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 even longer. Common symptoms after a concussive traumatic brain injury are headache, loss of memory (amnesia) and confusion. The amnesia usually involves forgetting the event that caused the concussion.

Physical signs and symptoms of a concussion may include:

• Headache
• Ringing in the ears
• Nausea
• Vomiting
• Fatigue or drowsiness
• Blurry vision

Other signs and symptoms of a concussion include:

• Confusion or feeling as if in a fog
• Amnesia surrounding the traumatic event
• Dizziness or “seeing stars”

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

• Temporary loss of consciousness (though this doesn’t always occur)
• 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 and 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
