A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury caused by a bump, blow or jolt to the head that can change the way your brain normally works. It is very important to have concussions evaluated and treated immediately and comprehensively, especially for children.
If you think you or your child has a concussion and are experiencing symptoms such as dizziness, trouble thinking or a persistent headache, go to an emergency room immediately. Sutter Emergency Departments can provide screening and refer you to appropriate specialty services as needed.
We also offer several non‐emergency services to help children and adults prevent, screen for and treat concussions.
