Concussions: 
A concussion is a traumatic brain injury that affects your brain function. Effects are usually temporary but can include headaches and problems with concentration, memory, balance and coordination. Most teenagers recover fully after a concussion. Below is a CDC fact sheet for parents that I encourage you to read, particularly if your child has suffered a concussion.
