Concussion is the most common type of traumatic brain injury. The word originates from the Latin word, “concutere”, which means to shake violently. Concussion injuries can range from mild to severe and in professional sports you often hear of a player being removed from the field because of a concussion.

This type of head injury can be permanent or temporary. Sometimes, with the right therapy and treatment, patients can regain all or almost all of their cognitive functions. The brain is a very delicate organ that controls all the various functions of the body. It is the center of the nervous system and when it is injured, can have a number of unusual symptoms.
Since the brain generates patterns of muscle activity, you may not be able to walk or move correctly. The brain also controls speech so your speech may be slurred. In fact, all the senses can be affected including vision, hearing, taste, smell and touch.
