  • What Is a Concussion?

A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury—or TBI—caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head or by a hit to the body that causes the head and brain to move rapidly back and forth. This sudden movement can cause the brain to bounce around or twist in the skull, creating chemical changes in the brain and sometimes stretching and damaging brain cells.


  • Concussions Are Serious!

Concussions are usually not life-threatening, but the effects of a concussion can change a life and the injury should be treated seriously.
