Concussion

If you or your child plays a sport and gets hurt, you want to get back in the game as quickly as possible. Being sidelined with a concussion takes patience and quality care to heal.


A concussion is an injury from a bump, blow, or jolt to the head or a hit to the body that causes the head and brain to move rapidly back and forth, often occurring without losing consciousness. High school football has the highest rate of concussions, followed by girls’ soccer. Spotting concussion symptoms is the first step in getting back in the game.
