A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury—or mild TBI.

What is it?

A concussion is a brain injury caused by a sudden acceleration of the head and neck resulting from a blow or contact to the body. Concussions can occur from many different activities, including falls, motor vehicle collisions, sports, or being struck by an object. Symptoms can appear immediately or, in some cases, days following the initial injury. Prompt diagnosis and treatment of concussions are essential, including cognitive and physical rest for 24–48 hours afterward. Most people who sustain a concussion begin to feel better and symptoms start to lessen within a few days to weeks after the concussion. There is, however, a percentage of the population whose symptoms can persist for months or longer. This is called persistent post-concussive symptoms (PPCS).

If you’re struggling with a concussion, we have a variety of services that can help with evaluation and recovery.

From there, we’ll pair you with the right medical practitioner to determine your care plan.
