Concussions are a form of traumatic brain injury that are not usually life-threatening but can be very serious. They can be caused by a bump or blow to the head or body causing the brain to move back and forth in the skull. This movement can change how the brain usually functions. Concussion signs and symptoms can show up right after the injury, but sometimes do not appear until hours or even days afterwards.
