A concussion is an injury to the brain caused by a blow to the head, or by striking the head on another object. It may result in a headache, confusion, or rarely even loss of consciousness, and the effects usually resolve in a few hours or days.
The board-certified pediatricians at Peakview Pediatrics recommend watching this video* Concussions 101, a Primer for Kids and Parents to understand a little more about concussions and the steps to take if you've had a sports-related concussion before you get back in the game.
The video encourages patients to "take care of that awesome brain" and we agree. Contact our office if you have questions or want to schedule an appointment with one of our board-certified pediatricians in Greeley.
