Even mild concussions

Concussion indicates the acute neurophysiological event related to blunt impact or other mechanical energy applied to the head, neck or body (with transmitting forces to the brain), such as from sudden acceleration, deceleration or rotational forces.

Research by University of Virginia shows that even mild concussions cause severe and long-lasting impairments in the brain's ability to clean itself of toxins, and this may seed it for Alzheimer's disease, dementia and other neurodegenerative problems.

A concussion is a mild form of traumatic brain injury (TBI) and it may happen by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head. Concussions can also occur by a blow or fall which causes the head to move rapidly back and forth. The injuries were described as ‘mild’ due to concussions are usually not life-threatening.

Common physical symptoms of concussions including: headache, nausea, vomiting, blurred or double vision, balance problems, dizziness, sensitivity to light or noise, vertigo. Study by University of Montana and the University of Vermont finds athletes and veterans who suffer even minor concussions can have problems focusing in class and taking in new information.
