Baseline Concussion Testing

IBJI offers baseline concussion testing at many of our physical therapy locations. The ImPACT Baseline Test assesses baseline concussion symptoms and their severity. It helps doctors understand your baseline abilities to determine if you need concussion treatment and when it’s safe to return to activity.

You can also take an ImPACT Baseline Test using IBJI’s Sports Access app. Download our app from the Apple App Store or Google Play to schedule a test at home.

Blood Flow Restriction Training

Blood flow restriction (BFR) training induces muscle hypertrophy to help patients improve their strength, grow their muscles, and reduce pain after an injury or surgery. This technique uses low-load exercise to allow your body to feel fatigued without muscle tissue breaking down. 

IBJI’s orthopedic rehab specialists include expert physical therapists at multiple locations who are certified in the use of BFR training.
