What is a concussion?

Concussions are a type of traumatic brain injury which affects the brain’s ability to function in a proper way. These occur when a blow or impact to the head causes a sudden disruption of the RAS (reticular activating system), located in the middle of the brain, that is responsible for consciousness. In some cases signs might be subtle while in other cases, symptoms may last for a few days or longer. What it is important to remember is that a concussion is not always followed by unconsciousness and any strong hit or bump to the head should be carefully monitored and in case any of the following symptoms appear, there should be asked for medical assistance.

Most common concussion causes:

The main risk triggers are road accidents or recreational and sporting activities.

- a fall, bump or accident;

- a blow to the head or body;

- any injury that jars or shakes the brain inside the skull

Any of the above can result in a temporary displacement of the brain from its normal position rendering symptoms like memory loss, brief unconsciousness or confusion.
