Concussion Fact Sheet
What is a concussion?
A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury—or TBI for short—that is 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.
Even a hard fall to the ground can rattle the brain!!!
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!!!
