Concussion and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury, or TBI, cause by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head that can change the way your brain normally works. Concussions can also occur from a fall or blow to the body that casuses the head and brain to move quickly back and forth. Health care professionals may describe a concussion as "mild" brain injury because concussions are usually not life threatening. Even so, their effects can be serious.
