Annandale Youth Lacrosse is proud to announce partnering with Inova Sports Medicine and their concussion baseline testing for local families.
The Inova Sports Medicine Concussion Program is a physician-based team of experts trained in recognizing the signs and symptoms of consussion quickly to optimize and individualize care, recovery and return to play.
A component of this is concussion baseline testing. Concussion baseline testing is recommended for all athletes engaged in sporting activites. Although your child may not experience a concussion it is important to prepare and obtain a baseline to establish athlete-specific data which allows physicians to better manage concussion if it does occur. Generally, it is recommened that a concussion baseline be established prior to the season but baseline testing can be completed at any point during the season.
Annandale Youth Lacrosse families have the opportunity to register for a weekend baseline testing session Saturday, February 16, 2019 from 9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. at the Inova facility located at 8111 Gatehouse Road, Floor B2 Falls Church, VA 22204.
Click here to register today. [Note there is a $30 cost for the testing] Unable to attend the special weekend session, families are always welcome to visit at another time.
While you never expect it to happen whether on the playground at school or any activity, having the baseline is an important treatment and recovery tool for physicians and parents.
