Does your school or sports club have rules regulating how concussions are prevented and managed?
What should you do if your child suffers a possible concussion?
Learn the basics of a concussion - from the signs and symptoms, to what to do if a concussion occurs.
If you or someone else had a fall or jolt to the body in which the head moved back and forth, even if it did not actually strike anything, (e.g. in a minor car accident), or if there was a bump to the head, it is important to know that a concussion may have happened. If there is any potential that a concussion has occurred, it is important to stop the activity and get assessed. A person who has a concussion is not always able to make rational decisions about their own
care or condition, even if the person appears to be ok. Health Disclaimer*
