Concussions are under-researched, somewhat unpredictable, and can uproot your life. For most, concussion symptoms go away within 10 to 14 days.1 Five to twenty percent of cases can have ongoing problems lasting months or years.1 Concussion-related problems can even start years after the initial injury.
Millions of sports-related mild brain injuries, or concussions, happen in the U.S. each year. Returning to play before you’re fully recovered can be dangerous. It raises the risk for long-term symptoms like headaches, dizziness, and problems with mental function after future concussions.
