Facts about Concussion
and Brain Injury

A blow or jolt to the head can disrupt the normal function of the brain. Doctors often call this type of brain injury a 'concussion' or a 'closed head injury.' Doctors may describe these injuries as 'mild' because concussions are usually not life threatening. Even so,the effects of a concussion can be serious.

After a concussion,some people lose consciousness or are 'knocked out' for a short time, but not always - you can have a brain injury without losing consciousness. Some people are simply dazed or confused. Sometimes whiplash can cause a concussion.
