A concussion can occur when a person is struck in the head or takes a hit to the body that moves the head forcefully.  Concussions can cause cognitive (thinking), physical, emotional and sleep-related symptoms and every concussion can present differently.  Fortunately, not all contact to the head results in a concussion but it is important to look for any signs or symptoms of concussion after contact.

Join Dr. Elizabeth Pieroth live on our Facebook page to learn more about the process of diagnosing and managing concussions. Dr. Pieroth will also answer your questions in real-time during the live broadcast.
