A concussion is the most common type of brain injury, often occurring in bike and car accidents or during sports. Many people think that you have to lose consciousness to have a concussion but that is indeed not the case. A concussion occurs any time you have some type of trauma to the head. That can be jostling of the head where the brain is basically just hitting the inside of the skull or it can actually be where you hit your head or somebody that falls and they fall and hit their head. Kids that are playing sports and they run into each other can end up with a concussion. The two main symptoms of a concussion are amnesia, which is loss of memory and confusion.
