A concussion is a form of a traumatic brain injury caused by a blow to body that shakes the brain inside the skull. The brain is protected by fluid that normally prevents it from hitting the side of the skull. However, if the head or body is hit hard enough, the brain can crash into the side of the skull and suffer injury.
The signs and symptoms of a concussion are not always obvious. A person does not have to pass out or lose consciousness. The severity of a concussion can also vary widely and the effects may last from as little as a few hours to as much as several months.
Symptoms of a concussion may include one or more of the following:

Equally important in the prevention of concussions are maximum fitness and optimal health. No matter what the sport, an athlete’s body must be in peak condition physical and mental condition to prevent and recover from all types of injury.

Chiropractors are also highly trained and experienced with identifying and treating injuries and other problems related to the central nervous system including concussions.
