Concussion is a disturbance in brain function caused by direct or indirect force to the head. Terms concussion and mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) are frequently used interchangeably. It is a complex injury that may have extensive consequences for a patient, his/her close ones, and society as a whole, too.
Emergency departments report more than 1 million visits annually for traumatic brain injuries, most of which are concussions. However, this is likely underreported because many persons do not seek medical care for head injuries. The incidence of sports-related concussions is estimated to be 1.6 to 3.8 million annually.
