What is a concussion?

A concussion is a traumatic brain injury that affects your brain function. Effects are usually temporary but can include headaches, difficulty concentrating, problems related to memory, balance, and coordination. Concussions are usually caused by a blow to the head or violently shaking the head and upper body. Many people assume that concussions involve a loss of consciousness, but that is not true. In many cases, a person with a concussion never loses consciousness.

Symptoms of a concussion can be subtle and may not be visible immediately. Symptoms may last days.
