A concussion can occur from a blow to the head or body that results in the brain moving rapidly back and forth within the skull.
It is a brain injury that causes changes in how the brain functions, leading to symptoms that may include:
• Headache • Dizziness • Difficulty concentrating or remembering • Depression or irritability • Drowsiness or difficulty falling asleep
Though concussions are common sport injuries, particularly among children and adolescents, sometimes subtle symptoms may go unnoticed. Without identification and proper management, a concussion can result in permanent or severe brain damage.
In March 2012, the government announced the Ontario Concussion Strategy - a multi ministry strategy to build awareness about concussions. To access their Concussion Guidelines, click here. Then click on 'Resources' for a range of information.
