All About Concussions & What to Do

What is a Concussion?

Concussions are a very common injury, but just because they are common does not mean that they aren’t serious. Concussions are a type of traumatic brain injury (TBI) caused by a blunt force trauma to the head or when the head experiences a violent change in momentum, such as in a car accident. A concussion occurs when the brain is jarred around inside of the skull.

Concussions may cause the following symptoms:

  • Loss of consciousness
  • Headache
  • Nausea
  • Problems with balance and/or coordination
  • Confusion/memory problems

Although doctors believed in the past that concussions were always accompanied by a loss of consciousness, it is now widely accepted that a person does not have to lose consciousness in order to have sustained a brain injury. In fact, many people who suffer concussions don’t even realize that they have been injured, which is why it is essential to see a doctor as soon as possible after a blow to the head or after an auto accident. Even if you don’t remember losing consciousness, you should always check for potential injuries.
