What is a concussion?

A concussion is the most frequent  and least severe form of cranial injuries. It is generally caused by a hit, a deceleration or a strong compression on the skull, all of which result in movement of the brain inside the head. As a consequence, damage to the nerves occurs, more specifically, a stretching of the axons. 

What are the most common signs and symptoms of a concussion?

  • Nausea and/or vomiting
  • Temporary memory loss
  • Vision problems
  • Confusion accompanied by headaches
  • Neck problems, balance problems

How do we treat a concussion?
