HEAD CONCUSSION INJURY: What is a Concussion?

A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury (TBI). It can be caused by a force to the head from a bump, a sporting accident, a back and forth type jolt, or a fall, and it can change the functioning of your brain; i.e. how the brain works. It is considered by many health professionals as "mild" because it is usually never a life threatening injury. Regardless, the symptoms from a concussion injury can be serious.
