What is a concussion?

.

Concussion refers to a mild traumatic injury to the brain without an associated structural abnormality such as bleeding. It may occur with or without loss of consciousness.

.

While concussions can occur from direct impact, many occur without any contact to the head. A sudden abrupt stop, such as a fall to the ground or two players running directly into one another without hitting heads, can cause a concussion.

.

Signs/Symptoms

.

Only one of the following needs to be present for a concussion to be suspected. It is also possible to have any combination of these symptoms.

Confusion/disorientation

Dizziness

Headache

Blurred vision

Unsteadiness

Nausea

Feeling in a fog

Vomiting

May or may not involve loss of consciousness (loss consciousness is not typical)

If an athlete only has a headache, is it a concussion?

.

A headache can be a symptom of a concussion until determined otherwise by a medical provider trained in evaluating concussions. If the headache started after any sudden event such as a blow to the head or face, or after an abrupt stop without striking the head, such as a hard fall, then yes, a simple headache is a sign of a concussion. In fact, it is often the only sign of a concussion.

.

What should be done if a concussion is suspected?

.

Seek medical advice from an individual who is trained in assessing and diagnosing concussions
Do not have the person take ibuprofen related products or aspirin
Carefully watch the injured person for worsening symptoms

.

If symptoms continue to worsen, transport the athlete to the local emergency room for further evaluation
