A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury (TBI) caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head or by a hit to the body that causes the head and brain to move quickly back and forth. Concussion typically results in the onset of short-lived impairments of neurological function that resolve spontaneously.
