De Keyrel Racing Testing at National Dizzy and Balance Center!
I was recently tested for concussions at the National Dizzy and Balance center. This test was not because I currently have a concussion. It was to simply get a base line so if in the future we think I have a concussion. National Dizzy & Balance center can retest me to know for sure.
They would then compare the new data to a base line. This will allow them to more accurately know exactly where I am in the stage of being concussed. They will be able to diagnose faster and more accurately the level of concussion. This will allow me to get into therapy for the concussion with the accurate knowledge to get me back riding sooner. Doing this test will allow me in the unfortunate case of a concussion to get back on the track faster and safer!
We did a couple of tests and not all were related to concussions. This test was all about balance. Not only how your body reacts in a fast reflex situation but the way it reacts. Some people put more weight on there toes because they don’t react with there hips which is more stable. We learned a ton about our bodies and how I react to certian situations. I have to give a huge thank you to National Dizzy and Balance center for testing us today. If you have not had this test done take it sooner than later because if you are concussed it’s too late to get a base line to compare too! Their focus is getting athletes back into competition safer sooner.
