A concussion is a very serious condition that is often seen in sport and more and more incidents are being reported in a sport. It can range from very mild to very severe depending on the circumstances and it is usually caused by a sudden impact to the head from a traumatic (contact) event.
Confusion or memory loss
Post-concussion syndrome is a complication of concussion which may develop some time after the initial injury. There are a range of symptoms including headaches, lack of concentration or even depression, which the athlete may not initially associate with a previous concussion.
