What is a Concussion?
A concussion is a brain injury caused by a blow to the head or body that causes the brain to move rapidly inside the skull. Concussions can also result from a fall or from collisions between with one or more individuals or obstacles. They disrupt normal brain function, and can range from mild to severe. A concussion is possible from a minor bump and can occur even without loss of consciousness. As brain injury, concussions are serious.
Please review the Lee County infornation on Head Injuries, it offers signs and symptoms of concussions. Please note that most concussions do not occur with loss of consciousness. If your child reports any symptoms of concussion, or you observe any signs or symptoms of concussion yourself, seek medical attention.
