Help for concussions

Concussions, a brain injury that can change the way your brain works, are typically caused by a bump or jolt to the head. They can also be caused by a fall or a blow to the body that makes the head and brain move quickly back and forth. Learn more from our health library. 

Concussions are usually not life-threatening, and most people with a concussion make a quick and full recovery. However, the effects of a concussion can be serious and can last for weeks or even longer. Rest is the most important thing you can do to recover from a concussion.
