Concussion is a brain injury and must be treated with respect!
Concussion most commonly occurs in sport (at any level and age) but can also occur in the workplace or at home. It is essential that this condition is well managed so those suffering from concussion can successfully return to “normal life” without long term sequelae.
Those suffering from concussions should be monitored by a health professional that is experienced in dealing with concussion throughout their return to sport/life and those that suffer more prolonged concussive symptoms can be referred through the ACC concussion service.
