What is a Concussion?

A concussion is an injury to the brain. Most often it is caused by a blow to the head or body. You do NOT have to lose consciousness to sustain a concussion. There is no concussion deemed too small to NOT be taken seriously.

Some concussion symptoms include:

  • Difficulty with remembering recent events or meaningful facts
  • Severe headache, particularly in a specific location
  • Stiffening of the neck
  • Mental confusion or strangeness
  • Dizziness, poor balance, or unsteadiness
