Concussion Protocol

signs_and_symptoms_of_concussion.jpgA concussion can occur from a blow to the head or body that causes the brain to move rapidly back and forth within the skull. It is a brain injury that causes changes in how the brain functions, leading to symptoms that may include :

  • Headache;

  • Dizziness;

  • Difficulty concentrating or remembering;

  • Depression or irritability; and

  • Drowsiness or difficulty falling asleep.

Though concussions are common sport injuries, particularly among children and adolescents, their sometimes subtle symptoms may go unnoticed. Without identification and proper management, a concussion can result in permanent or severe brain damage.
