TENNESSEE RETURN TO LEARN/ RETURN TO PLAY: CONCUSSION MANAGEMENT GUIDELINES

Brain Injury Resources:

    ◦    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 fall or a blow to the body that causes the head and brain to move quickly back and forth. Health care professionals may describe a concussion as a “mild” brain injury because concussions are usually not life-threatening. Even so, their effects can be serious.
