Understanding A Concussion Injury
A concussion occurs when the brain is physically bruised in some way. This most often happens following a sharp blow to the head, though some concussions develop as a result of a mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI). In most cases, concussions will clear up on their own with little intervention. However, more serious concussions, such as those suffered in motor vehicle accidents, can significantly affect one’s ability to function. Common symptoms of more severe brain trauma include:
- Loss of consciousness
- Memory loss
- Inability to concentrate
- Subtle shifts in mood
- Irritability or over-emotional behaviour
