What is a Concussion?
Disclaimer: Concussion Mom is an internet tool used to aid in the education and awareness of concussions, and to provide general information about concussions and concussion education and management. Concussion Mom is not medically based and does not provide medical advice. Concussion Mom should not be used in the diagnosis or management of concussion. Always seek medical attention immediately if you suspect a concussion. Concussion Mom does not discourage participation in sports, but does encourage safety in sports participation. .
The purpose of Concussion Mom is to educate and raise awareness about concussions. Concussion Mom began as a way to coach and educate concussion survivors and their caregivers, and now provides education and awareness to a broader audience. Although concussions differ greatly from person-to-person in terms of symptoms, severity and length of recovery, it is important to take each and every one seriously. Just as no two people are alike, neither are any two concussions alike. Concussions, also referred to as Traumatic Brain Injury, or TBI, are not just a sports-related injury; they can happen to anyone, anywhere, anytime. It is vital to recognize the symptoms and seek treatment immediately if you suspect a concussion, and adhere to the treatment program provided by your doctor.
Concussion Mom greatly values sports and all they can do for the participants; teamwork, exercise and values are just a small part of how sports can impact the life of the players. Be mindful and play safely.
