Concussions in children
Concussions are the most common type of traumatic brain injuries. A concussion is usually caused by a blow to the head or body that results in a disruption or loss of normal brain function and potentially a loss of consciousness. A concussion is diagnosed based on symptoms that can occur immediately after the injury or hours, possibly days, later. Some of the common signs and symptoms include headaches, dizziness, drowsiness, blurry vision or coordination problems, but each instance can present with different symptoms.
