A concussion is a traumatic brain injury that happens when the brain is shaken within the skull. Symptoms vary from person to person, and while most people recover completely within a few weeks, sometimes symptoms resolve more slowly. Concussions can have a profound impact on activities of daily living (ADLs), and require ongoing treatment and management throughout recovery. See current statistics on concussion.
