Concussion Management

The complex pathophysiological process of a concussion affects the brain. It results from a biomechanical force injury, such as a hit to the head, neck, or face or a blow to another body region that transmits mechanical force to the head. It's possible that the person didn't lose consciousness (LOC) due to the occurrence. In reality, LOC is only involved in about 10% of concussions.
