What is a concussion?

Understanding a concussion

Also known as a traumatic brain injury (TBI), a concussion is a type of brain damage that occurs when the head undergoes sudden movement or trauma. For example, a bump or blow to the head, or a jolt to the head during an accident, can all cause a concussion. This sudden movement or force to the head causes the brain and the body to move swiftly forward and back. Rapid movement causes brain tissue to change shape and stretch, harming brain cells. The damage can also trigger metabolic and chemical changes inside those brain cells, which makes it harder for the cells to communicate and function. Because it is our brain’s central control point, the effects of a concussion may be extensive.

Concussions can sometimes be life-threatening. In most cases, they are not. However, the consequences of trauma could alter an individual’s life, and injuries should treat with care.
