What is a Concussion?

The CDC defines a concussion as: "a type of traumatic brain injury (TBI) caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head or by a hit to the body that causes the head and brain to move quickly back and forth. This fast movement can cause the brain to bounce around or twist in the skull, creating chemical changes in the brain and sometimes stretching and damaging the brain cells." Signs and symptoms of a concussion include but are not limited to:

  • headache
  • nausea
  • dizziness
  • sensitivity to light and noise
  • feeling "in a fog"
  • difficulty concentrating
  • difficulty remembering
  • feeling slowed down
  • feeling of pressure in head
  • sleep disturbances
  • balance problems

If you think your child is suffering from a concussion, have him/her be evaluated by the school athletic trainer as soon as possible.
