Neurological Pre-Participation Evaluations

The Sports Neurology Clinic believes that while concussions are extremely important injuries, long-term athlete brain health is the ultimate goal. We are pleased to offer Neurological Pre-Participation Evaluations (Neuro PPEs) to student athletes of all ages and levels of play within our local communities. Rather than simple “baseline testing,” our pre-season brain health evaluation provides critical information that will be used for comparison in the event of an injury, which allows for more effective diagnosis and return-to-play decisions.

We offer two versions of Neuro PPEs:

Neuro PPE Screening


is intended for healthy, contact sport athletes. This screening evaluation is recommended to be completed once every two years, unless there is a change to the athlete’s medical history or the athlete had a suspected/confirmed concussion within the past year.

Neuro PPE+


is equivalent to a comprehensive new patient visit in our clinic and is recommended if the athlete has a history of one or more of the following:

  • Concerning concussion in the past
  • Migraine or other headache disorder
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • ADHD/ADD
  • Seizure/epilepsy
