Anatomy of Concussion

The concussion authority

A concussion is a mild traumatic brain injury (TBI) that:

Alters the way the brain functions.

Is common, particularly for people who play contact sports.

Is often caused by bumps, blows or strong shaking of the head.

May change the normal function of the brain.

Can be serious, even if the child/athlete has only been “dinged.”
