Concussion in Sports

Fast Facts

  • A concussion is a brain injury and all are serious.
  • Most concussions occur without loss of consciousness.
  • Recognition and proper response to concussions when they first occur can help prevent further injury or even death.

What is a Concussion?

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 blow to the body that causes the head to move rapidly back and forth. Even a “ding,” “getting your bell rung,” or what seems to be mild bump or blow to the head can be serious.
Concussions can occur in any sport or recreation activity. So, all coaches, parents, and athletes need to learn concussion signs and symptoms and what to do if a concussion occurs.

Concussion poster for young athletes of all sports

For Young Athletes of All Sports

A similar poster educating young athletes about concussion in all sports is now available to display in team locker rooms, gymnasiums, and schools nationwide. This poster lets athletes know that all concussions are serious and emphasizes the importance of reporting their injury. The poster also provides athletes with a list of concussion signs, symptoms and steps they should take if they think they have a concussion. 
The poster for young athletes is the result of a joint effort between the NFL, CDC, and NFL Players Association, as well as 14 National Governing Bodies for Sport. Additionally, the poster has been endorsed by the American College of Emergency Physicians and the American Association of Neurological Surgeons.
