Concussions

A concussion is a brain injury caused by a bump or blow to the head. Signs and symptoms can show up right after the injury or may not appear to be noticed until days or weeks after the injury. If your child reports any symptoms or if you notice the symptoms yourself, seek medical attention right away. Learn more about signs and symptoms of concussions >>
