What is a Concussion?

A concussion is a mild traumatic brain injury that affects your brain function. Concussions are caused by a direct or indirect blow to the head or body causing the brain to move within the skull. This type of injury results in chemical changes, energy crisis, and stretching or shearing within brain cells. There are no changes structurally, which is why imaging will be negative.

Concussions most often occur during a fall, car accident, or full-contact sport like football or boxing. If you suspect you or a loved one has experienced a concussion, seek medical care immediately and reach out to a concussion expert.
