Concussion Management

We provide ImPACT™, a neurocognitive test that is the most widely used test and currently the choice of the MLB, NHL, NBA, MLS and NFL. ImPACT™ helps physicians evaluate an athlete’s recovery following a concussion. In the preseason, each athlete is given a baseline test. Should a concussion occur, a follow-up test may be administered to see if results have changed from the baseline to help determine if an athlete is ready to return to action. Belton Regional Medical Center partners with local school and community sports program to provide concussion baseline testing. Please check with your athletic program to see if baseline testing is offered.
