When a person suffers a sudden blow to the head, and the brain is shaken inside of the skull, the trauma may stop the brain from working properly for a small period of time. This type of injury is called a concussion and it can cause much more serious problems in some victims, including long-term cognitive issues. A concussion is not always easy to diagnose but if you have noticed symptoms, it is important to get the help you need right away.
