A concussion is a mild form of traumatic brain injury (TBI) caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Concussions can also occur from a fall or a blow to the body that causes the head to move rapidly back and forth.
This sudden movement can cause the brain to bounce around or twist in the skull, chemical changes in the brain, and stretching and damaging brain cells
These changes in the brain lead to symptoms that may affect how a person thinks, learns, feels, acts, and sleeps. Doctors may describe these injuries as mild because concussions are usually not life-threatening. Even so, the effects of a mild TBI or concussion can be serious.
