Concussion Checklist

Throughout the month of August, we have been blogging about concussions including an introduction, symptoms and treatment, prevention and further education.

Concussions occur when there is a sudden jolt or blow to the head. This causes the brain to move and, in severe cases, even twist, causing a dangerous amount of pressure inside of the skull. Concussions can be serious and have long-lasting effects if managed poorly (by having an athlete return to play too quickly, for example). This month’s Quick Reference Guide is a Concussion Signs & Symptoms Checklist.
