Frequently Asked Questions about Concussions (FAQ)

Unfortunately, every person's brain is different, and there are multuple grades of concussion that rande from mild to severe. If you, or a loved one, experiences a concussion make sure you know the signs and symptoms so that they are able to return to work/play safely.

For athletes the most dangerous cases are when they return to play too soon after an initial concussion and suffer from second impact syndrome (to learn more about SIS stay tuned!). 

For non-athletes it is dangerous to return to work before they are ready because it could lead to an increase strain on the brain which could cause long-term symptoms such as headaches and/or difficulty concentraiting.
