What is a Concussion?

A concussion is a serious brain injury that happens when the head is struck by an external force. Concussion severity will depend on where the head was hit and by how much force. This means there a range of concussions from mild to serious. Mild concussions often leave people dazed, dizzy, or even losing consciousness for a brief time. Serious concussions will include longer periods of lost consciousness and long-term brain damage.

In a post-concussion syndrome, the effects of a concussion listed above don't heal quickly. Injuries can last months, years, or even life-long, depending on the severity of the concussion. People suffering post-concussion syndrome will need a great deal of physical and occupational therapy to get their life back to normal.
