What is a concussion?

Per the CDC, a concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury (TBI) caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head that can change the way in which your brain normally works.  Concussions can also occur from a blow to the body that causes the head to move rapidly back and forth.  Even what seems to be a minor bump or blow to the head can be serious.  Concussions can occur in any sport or recreational activity.
