Anatomy of concussion


Initial impact directly to the head or body causes the soft brain to strike the hard skull.


Shaking disrupts the brain’s normal chemical balance.


In severe cases the brain may swell. This puts pressure on the brain stem‚ which controls breathing and other basic life functions.
