Are concussions a form of brain injury? My son plays a lot of football and hockey.

In some instances, a series of mild head traumas may lead to brain injury. Although concussions are often considered temporary injuries, even a single concussion can stretch and tear nerve fibers in the brain. This type of injury does not always show up on CAT scans or during a neurological exam. 

Some individuals who suffer mild concussions but never lose consciousness do not get a full neurological, medical workup. As such, the issue remains undetected until later in life. Sometimes, symptoms appear after a person sustains a concussion or a series of concussions, including emotional, cognitive and physical issues. This condition is known as Post Concussion Syndrome.
