According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), a concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury, or TBI, caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head that can change the way your brain normally works. Concussions can also occur from a fall or a blow to the body that causes the head and brain to move quickly back and forth. 

Heads Up on Concussion 

CDC has created free online courses - for coaches, parents, athletic trainers, and others - which provide important information on preventing, recognizing, and responding to a concussion.
