Have you ever bumped your head extremely hard? For example, like me when I jumped off the top of my bunk bed before church; thinking I was a superhero lol. (STIL AM 🕺🏿)
A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury, or TBI, caused by a bump, blow or jolt to the head, or by a hit to the body that causes your head and brain to move rapidly back and forth.
This movement can literally cause the brain to bounce around or twist in the skull creating chemical changes in the brain 🧠 and sometimes stretching and damaging the brain cells.
These chemical changes make the brain more sensitive to any increase stress or injury until it fully recovers. That’s why it’s impact to not induce any type of stress upon self when recovering from a concussion.
You can’t see a concussion. It’s a disruption of how the brain 🧠 works.
