A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury or TBI caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head. The hit to the body causes the head and brain to bounce around creating damage to the brain cells. Medical providers may describe a concussion as a “mild” brain injury because concussions are usually not life-threatening.
