Concussions – Causes

By Michael Yorio, MD

JOI Describes the Causes of Concussions

Concussions are caused when the brain comes in contact with the skull either from direct contact or rapid movement such as whiplash. This contact of the brain and skull can result in bruising and inflammation of the brain. This inflammation is the cause of the concussion symptoms such as, dizziness, disorientation, headache, nausea, fatigue, and vomiting, among others.
