TA blow or jolt to the head can result in a traumatic brain injury (TBI), which can disrupt the function of the brain. Concussions, also called “closed head injuries” are a type of TBI.
Because the brain is complex, every brain injury is different. Some symptoms may appear right away. Other symptoms may not show up for days or weeks. Sometimes the injury makes it hard for people to recognize or to admit that they are having problems. The signs and symptoms of a concussion can be subtle. Early on, problems may be missed by patients, family members, and doctors. People may look fine even though they may act or feel differently.
