reACT Camp 2024

Join Us!

Summer Camp is a special time at M3K where campers and counselors alike look at new ways to familiar tasks, explore new activities, take on challenges, and share special camp moments with their summer camp community.

Kids and even older students need space to grow their brains, bodies, and relational skills through exploration, moving, creativity, and intentional interaction. Whether enjoying a minicamp, sports training, or week long camp we will delve into brain games, creative problem solving, adventure challenges, and intentional play activities which require focus, communication, and a little grit to ge the job done. Camps are fun forward using richly designed curriculum, integrating various aspects of the brain-body connection.

 We will find new ways of looking at the world, seeing and experiencing things with mindfulness, and learning how to tenaciously address open-ended challenges. Snack is provided. Food moves far beyond just nourishment and becomes an opportunity to explore a sensory experience!

 

Sports training is a way to sharpen visual skills, balance, game brain, and intentional movement requiring inhibitory and initiatory training. Appropriate for a diverse array of athletic disciplines. Take your game up a notch and be a step ahead for autumn sports.

Baseline Concussion Test and Post Impact Check

Baseline Concussion Test and Post Impact Check

Now Offering

IMG_2908.jpeg

What is a concussion according to the CDC?

"A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury- or TBI - caused by a bump, blow or jolt to the head or by a hit to the body that causes the head and brain to move rapidly back and forth. This sudden movement can cause the brain to bounce around or twist in the skull, creating chemical changes in the brain and sometimes stretching damaging brain cells." (CDC, 2019)

Concussion mechanisms differ. A baseline is useful for everyone, not just athletes. 

  • athletic impact

  • dog walking

  • slip on ice

  • accident

  • fall

Why baseline?

Every brain is unique. Without knowing the nuances of your brain, it is difficult to know what was affected by a head impact. The data collected during a baseline test helps medical professionals know how to best design your care plan after injure. Additionally, the results inform how and when you can safely return to various activities. 

Baseline tests assesses

  • Cognitive processing

  • Balance  

  • Memory

  • Attention

  • Concentration

  • Processing speed 

  • Physical accuracy

  • Reaction time

If there is concern post-impact, seek professional medical help immediately. As healing begins, ask your doctor when it is time to add additional care and get a baseline recheck.

It is informative post impact to understand the micro shifts in the brain. The Dynavision D2 test collects visual acuity and physical response times to 1/100th of a second, faster than the human eye can accurately assess. Use of vision permeates through 80+% of the brain. Specific vision tests can provide critical information about how your brain is truly functioning after impact. There are several types of confusion baseline tests. Establishing several types of data is suggested for those engaged in high impact activities.  Testing multiple skills simultaneously provides a clearer picture of a person's likely response doing a complex task (multi-tasking or split attention than testing several areas individually. If one or more areas of neurocognitive are functioning at a deficit, there is an impact on the entire task.

 

Dynavision D2

  • Simple

  • Thorough 

  • Tests visual acuity, peripheral vision, processing speed, memory, executive functions, vision tracking, and balance

  • Measures visual perception and reaction time to 1/100th of a second

  • Identically repeatable

  • Objective computer generated data 

  • Objectively test performance and brain function

  • Have comparitive, pre-impact baseline data

  • Return-to-play decisions

  • Annually or post head impact tests

Results from baseline tests on the Dynavision D2 can be compared to the identical test post impact and provide helpful information for return to play safety.

Most concussion symptoms resolve on their own within a couple of weeks. However, sometimes post-concussive symptoms persist, interrupting life. PCS is a complex and multi-faceted experience sometimes requiring significant external support. 

 

According to the Mayo Clinic

Persistent post-concussive symptoms — also called post-concussion syndrome, PCS  — occurs when symptoms of a mild traumatic brain injury last longer than expected after an injury. These symptoms may include:  headaches, dizziness, and problems with concentration and memory. 

What, if anything, can be done after head impact to support healing?

  • Research continues to shift best practices after a head impact.  

  • Cycle of movement and rest  

  • Eye exercises are often helpful as vision is generally effected in some way

  • Vestibular work (orientation in space) helps with motion sickness and balance

  • Cranial work for headaches 

  • Primitive reflex exercises for reorganizing the body and brain

  • Dietary changes to balance microbiome in the gut, directly affecting the brain 

(Did you know we have more neurons in our belly than the head?)

  • Mindfulness practices and breathwork to calm the fight or flight response 

Driving for example is a complex task. Safe driving requires visual acuity, accurate spatial assessment, rapid decision-making skills, tight motor coordination, and broad peripheral vision all working cohesively. The same is true when interacting on a field or court, and even while doing complex home maintenance tasks. The concurrent multifaceted D2 testing provides essential information for decisions surrounding return to play, driving safety, and engaging in other complex tasks. 

 

When concussion symptoms persist, you may need focused vestibular, visual, and mindfulness support.  We are here to help.
