A concussion is the most common and least serious type of traumatic brain injury that results from a sudden shake or blow to the head. The brain is made of soft tissue and it is surrounded by spinal fluid and encased in the protective shell of the skull. When you sustain a concussion, the impact can jolt your brain and it causes it to move around in your head. This can cause bruising which can damage the blood vessels and nerves which means that the brain doesn't function normally. You may notice that there are problems with vision, balance, attention, memory, nausea, and headaches. It is important to treat it when it happens but just as important to take measures to prevent it.
