Diagnosing a Concussion

Our experienced team may use a variety of tests in evaluating a concussion in addition to a physical exam by a trained physician.  

  • ImPACT® testing assists in the diagnosis and management of concussions and is the same used in most professional sports such as the NFL, NHL, MLB and NASCAR.
  • Balance Error Scoring System (BESS) is an additional tool utilized for diagnosis and monitoring of concussions.  
These tests are not a substitute for a comprehensive physical exam by a highly trained medical professional.

Baseline Test

An initial baseline test is recommended for athletes that participate in contact or collision sports, starting at age 10. Should a head injury occur, a post-injury test may be completed to assist in concussion diagnosis and management. Continual tests are performed to monitor and coordinate care from injury through return-to-play.  


If you or your someone you love has suffered an injury to the head, call 414-805-5005. We will help you find care at one of our convenient community locations.
