A concussion is a mild traumatic brain injury typically caused by a blow or jolt to the head, although it can also result from a sudden impact to the body that transmits force to the head. Concussions are often associated with symptoms such as headache, dizziness, confusion, nausea, and sensitivity to light and noise. These symptoms can vary in severity and may not always be immediately apparent.

At STRONG., we recommend seeking help through physiotherapy or chiropractic in addition to your family physician or sports medicine doctor. Recovery may last for several weeks.

It's crucial to seek medical attention if a concussion is suspected, as repeated concussions can have long-term cognitive and neurological consequences.
