An Overview of Concussion Injuries and Their Symptoms

One of the most common types of traumatic brain injuries is a concussion. Concussions occur when a person suffers a strong blow to the head or some other impact that causes the head to violently snap in any direction. While lighter blows to the head are often absorbed by the brain’s surrounding cerebrospinal fluid, harder impacts cause the brain to bounce around or twist within a person’s skull, damaging brain cells and prompting chemical changes in the brain.

Often occurring in contact-sports such as football and hockey, this type of mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI) can also occur during vehicle collisions, construction accidents, and slip and falls. Despite their classification as a mild injury, concussions can have serious effects and must be treated immediately to prevent long-term damage.

What are the Symptoms of a Concussion?

A concussion can lead to a variety of physical and cognitive symptoms with varying severity. Symptoms typically develop rapidly after a concussion occurs and can last anywhere from a few days to a few weeks.

Physical symptoms of a concussion include:

  • Headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Nausea
  • Difficulty balancing
  • Light sensitivity
  • Blurred or double vision
  • Tinnitus

In certain severe cases, concussions have been known to trigger seizures, though this is usually a one-time occurrence and is not indicative of a long-term chronic condition.

The following cognitive and emotional symptoms can also result:

  • Confusion
  • Difficulty focusing attention
  • Memory loss
  • Irritability
  • Difficulty sleeping

Concussion patients are generally instructed to rest physically and cognitively following their injury, including refraining from activities such as texting, playing video games, and strenuous work. Depending on the severity of a concussion, doctors may recommend constant medical observation for a few days until symptoms subside.
