A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury (TBI) that affects your brain function. It can be caused by a bump, jolt or blow to the head, or by a hit to the body which in turn causes the head to brain to move rapidly back and forth.
Concussions are not just relegated to the sports field. They can happen with a slip and fall, work injury, motor vehicle accident or many other daily activities.
The symptoms of a concussion are different for each individual.
