the brain normally works. A concussion is caused by bump, blow or

rapidly back and forth. Even a “ding,” “getting your bell rung,”
or what seems to be a mild bump or blow to the head can be serious.

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) - “A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury, or TBI, caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head that can change the way your brain normally works.
