Join us on Rowan’s Law Day for the launch of our first PACA Together event with the release of an educational video series produced by the Headsup Concussion Advocacy Network. The video series will take the viewers through 4 distinct areas of the concussion experience – exploring the “Recognition, Removal, Management and Prevention” aspects of the injury in a sport context.
A concussion is a brain injury. It can’t be seen on X-rays, CT scans or MRIs. It may affect the way a person thinks, feels and acts.
Any blow to the head, face or neck may cause a concussion. A concussion may also be caused by a blow to the body if the force of the blow causes the brain to move around inside the skull. A concussion can happen to anyone – anywhere – including:
- at home, school or your workplace
- following a car, bike or pedestrian accident
- from participating in games, sports or other physical activity
A concussion is a serious injury. While the effects are typically short-term, a concussion can lead to long-lasting symptoms and even long-term effects.
There are many signs and symptoms of a concussion to look out for, including:
- light sensitivity
