What is a concussion?
A concussion — also known as mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) — is an injury to the brain that alters the way it functions. Concussions result from the rapid movement of the brain inside the skull that disrupts the signals of the brain, which can be caused by a direct or an indirect blow. This could be the result of a sports-related injury, or even a fall at home.
