In brief: Testing
Concussions are diagnosed clinically: based on history of injury, current symptoms, and a physical exam. Other tools have been developed and validated to assist in diagnosis (and in determining recovery) such as balance tests and computer-based neurocognitive tests such as impact.
Controversy remains and more studies are needed to allow for better diagnosis and recognition of concussions.
