Brain Awareness


Today more awareness on brain injury and health was made more public on
Good Morning America“.

At Saponara Brain & Spine Center, we treat all brain injuries, but it’s also important to educate about brain health, and injury prevention.

Brain injuries occur in all contact sports, whether it be soccer, football, lacrosse, basketball, etc. Over the past few years it’s becoming more and more evident how blows to the head affect brain function not only in the present, but also in one’s future.

Which is why kids, teenagers, and adults playing these sports should have baseline testing done. This allows you to compare not only cognitive function, but processing speed, reaction time, center of pressure (balance), vestibular and visual system function, from a pre-injury state to a post injury state.

Why is this important?

Because, not only are we able to get a better perspective about the degree of injury in a shorter period of time, but more importantly, increase specificity to the system, or systems that may be injured. Which, in turn, greatly aids in arriving at a treatment protocol, reducing the amount of time between injury and treatment, which is crucial to begin the healing process.

At Saponara Brain & Spine Center , our knowledge of clinical neuroscience allows us to not only gather all this baseline information, but also treat in case of an injury. This baseline information will be given to you for your records, and can travel with you in case you should need it.
