CDC CONCUSSION GUIDE



Concussion Awareness

Concussion Facts
  • A concussion is a brain injury that affects how your brain works
  • A concussion is caused by a blow to the head or body
  • A concussion can happen even if you haven’t been knocked unconscious
  • If you think you have a concussion, you should not return to play until a proper healthcare professional clears you

Concussion Symptoms
  • Symptoms vary from person to person and may not show up for hours or days. These include:
  • Headache
  • Confusion
  • Memory loss
  • Dizziness
  • Sluggish, Groggy, or Foggy
  • Feeling irritable or emotionally down
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Blurry or Double vision
  • Slowed reaction time
  • Loss of consciousness

Why should I report my symptoms ?
  • Playing or practicing with a concussion is dangerous and can lead to delay in recovery and returning to play
  • While the brain is healing, it is much more likely to sustain another concussion and long term problems
  • In rare cases, repeat concussions can cause brain swelling, permanent brain damage and even death
