IT CAN HAPPEN ANYWHERE, AT ANY AGE
Slips, trips and falls, as well as road traffic accidents, account for most cases of concussion. It is increasingly being recognised that elderly people who fracture a bone because of a fall have also sustained a concussion, which may exacerbate symptoms of tiredness and confusion. Concussion is most common amongst children however. They have a large head relative to the size of their body, and are more liable to fall over, and hit the ground head first.
