Concussion Signs and Symptoms

A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury that can change the way the brain would normally function. They are often very difficult to diagnose as many signs and symptoms don’t immediately appear. Another difficulty of concussion diagnosis is that many athletes of all ages and abilities are often times reluctant to admit or address the possibility of a concussion because they want to continue participating in their activity or simply because the symptoms are so subtle that both athlete, coach and parent are not even aware there is an issue.
