Concussion

A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury (TBI) that is caused by a blow to the head. It is also possible to get a concussion from a blow to the neck or body that causes sudden head movement. This type of brain injury can happen in recreational activities and in sports. In sports, concussions don’t happen only during competition. They can also happen during drills or practices. A blow to the head, neck, or body from a fall or a car accident can also cause a concussion.
