Concussion Symptoms

A concussion is diagnosed based on signs and symptoms that can occur immediately after the injury or hours, possibly days, later. Each case is different, but if your child is suffering from a concussion they may present with one or more of the following symptoms. Having more than one physical symptom does not necessarily mean that the concussion is more severe.
