Free Testing for Concussions In Children | Health
Unaddressed concussions can have a devastating effect on a child’s life. Many silent concussions that are not obvious go unreported, sometime with deadly results.
Whether the concussion comes from a head injury, fall, or the sudden impact of acceleration or deceleration force, it can occur without being immediately recognized and can lead to long-term complications.
Because of this, some businesses, in conjunction with Vision Help Concussion Project, are offering a free baseline concussion testing with the King-Devick Test during September. This test is a safe, fast and reliable method to detect a dysfunction in micro-eye movements associated with concussions. Appointments are limited so please call ahead.
