What is a concussion?

A concussion is a mild traumatic brain injury (TBI), caused by a shock or blow to the head or body that causes the brain to move rapidly back and force (shake) in your head. Concussions can occur even when a person does not lose consciousness. Many times, symptoms will show up soon after the injury. However, some symptoms may not show up for hours or days.

Concussion symptoms may include:

  • Headache
  • Nausea
  • Dizziness
  • Confusion
  • Balance and vision issues
  • Sensitivity to light or sound
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Difficulty thinking
  • Emotional issues (feeling down, groggy, hazy)

You should call 911 immediately if you experience severe symptoms such as a seizure, weakness in limbs, slurred speech or confusion after a blow to the head or body.

After any injury to the head it’s important to take note of symptoms you are experiencing and seek appropriate medical care. The team of doctors and caregivers at Mission Heritage Medical Group and Mission Hospital specialize in evaluating and treating patients who have suffered a concussion or traumatic brain injury.
