CDC Concussion Fact Sheet

Concussions are arguably the most commonly referenced form of Traumatic Brain Injury. The CDC published a PDF Fact Sheet summarizing information about concussions, symptoms, and some tips for improvement. This fact sheet would be an ideal resource to hand to parents or a teacher of a student who has recently suffered a concussion, whether at home, during a sport, or on the playground.

The tips listed, for quick reference, are:

  • Get plenty of sleep at night and rest during the day
  • Avoid physically demanding or high concentration activities
  • Ask your doctor about your limits for dangerous activities (e.g. driving, biking)
  • Do not drink alcohol
