Concussion is a common brain injury in contact sports. The examining physician will test the mobility of the eyes and the pupillary response to light. Vestibular function is assessed by asking patients to balance on a soft pad. A concussion assessment form is usually used to record symptoms and test results to better gauge patient progress through treatment and recovery.
