What is a Concussion?

A loss of normal brain function in response to head injury. It is a mild form of traumatic brain injury. Symptoms may begin immediately or in the days or weeks following. The majority of people will recover spontaneously in the first three weeks. Any concussion is considered something to be addressed to prevent longer issues.
