YOU DON’T NEED TO BANG YOUR HEAD TO GET CONCUSSION
Anything that causes a rapid back and forth movement of the head can cause concussion, for example a clash of shoulders, or a whiplash.
WHEN SYMPTOMS LAST FOR MORE THAN A MONTH, IT IS CALLED POST-CONCUSSION SYNDROME
The symptoms of post-concussion syndrome can go on for months, or even years. It can be very debilitating, leading to people falling behind at work and at school, becoming isolated from their friends, and causing low mood. Post-concussion syndrome usually needs specialised rehabilitation, but with appropriate help most people can recover fully from post concussion syndrome.
