When an individual experiences a blow to the head or body, it can result in a concussion, which is a form of brain injury. The impact causes the brain to move back and forth within the skull, resulting in a disruption of normal brain function.
While concussions can happen to anyone, athletes are particularly susceptible due to the physical nature of many sports. When an athlete sustains a concussion, it can affect their behavior, thinking, and physical abilities.
We expect a myriad of symptoms associated with a concussion injury. It is important to understand that every concussion is unique, and each person may have different symptoms and severity.
If you believe you’ve suffered a concussion, you should monitor your symptoms over the next 24-48 hours for any significant changes and watch for “red flags.”

There are some activities or strategies you should and should not be doing in the first 24-48 hours after a concussion injury.
