Understanding Concussions: Causes and Risk Factors

Concussions stem from head impacts, causing the brain to swiftly move back and forth. This motion can trigger chemical alterations and potentially harm brain cells. Although the skull acts as a protective barrier, impacts can disrupt brain function, leading to bruising, nerve injury, and blood vessel damage. Consequently, brain function may be impaired, manifesting as disturbed vision, equilibrium loss, or unconsciousness post-injury.

Several factors increase concussion risk:

  1. Engaging in contact sports without proper safety gear.

  2. Falls, particularly among children and older adults.

  3. Inadequate safety equipment in contact sports.

  4. Motor vehicle accidents.

  5. Direct head impact with an object.

  6. Military service.

  7. Prior concussion history.

The severity and symptoms of concussions vary, categorized into three grades:

Grade 1 - Mild Concussion: Symptoms lasting less than 15 minutes without loss of consciousness, including headache, dizziness, and difficulty concentrating.

Grade 2 - Moderate Concussion: Symptoms persisting over 15 minutes, such as persistent headache, confusion, and mood swings.

Grade 3 - Severe Concussion: Involves loss of consciousness with accompanying symptoms like severe headache, slurred speech, and seizures.

Prompt medical attention is crucial, especially for severe concussions, to ensure proper evaluation and optimize recovery.
