The Tacoma News Tribune told parents why athletes need a baseline concussion test, talking to Josh Waltier, director of athletic training for Apple Physical Therapy.
Waltier said the baseline testing will make it easier for trainers to diagnose a concussion and help parents in getting their kids back on the field at the right time.
That goes for the pros, too. A Dallas-based brain specialist told United Press International that NFL and NHL players need to take preseason baseline concussion testing seriously.
