A concussion can occur with a direct blow to the head or when the head hits the ground or court. It’s a traumatic brain injury and results in neuro cognitive changes within the brain. Symptoms can be headache, nassau, blurred vision, difficulty with balance and concentration.

If a player is suspected to have a concussion an athletic trainer or physician can initiate a sideline cognitive assessment. Once diagnosed rest is the key.
