Sports-related concussions can be severe and lead to much bigger problems for athletes down the road. A concussion is caused by a direct or an indirect bump, blow or jolt to the head. Concussions may not only cause damage to the brain, but also to other areas of the body, including the cervical spine, the vestibular system (or inner ear) and the eyes. Most concussions will resolve with rest within 10 days; however, 10% of athletes experience concussion symptoms for days, weeks or even months after the initial injury.
