Concussion: Signs and Symptoms
A concussion is not a structural injury and there is no protective equipment to date that will protect against a concussion. Concussions are cerebral injuries resulting in a disruption of the nerves, cells and chemicals within the brain. This process is called a metabolic cascade and is manifested in the development of signs and symptoms listed below.
A concussion is caused by a blow to the head or body resulting in a manifestation of signs and symptoms including, but not limited to:
Balance Problems Dizziness Feeling sluggish, hazy, foggy or groggy
Nausea Vomiting Slowed reaction time
Bothered by light or noise Double or blurry vision
Loss of consciousness Feeling irritable more emotional or “down”
If you suspect that your son/daughter has sustained a concussion, please follow up with your Athletic Trainer, School Nurse or Doctor.
