Concussion Awareness

What is a concussion and why is it important to be aware of?

A concussion is an injury to the brain or spinal cord, accompanied by loss of neural function, resulting from a blow to the head or a fall.

Concussions are very important to be aware of because of the risks if they are left untreated or aren't given the correct treatment.
