Most people with a concussion get better within a month. But in some cases, the effects last longer. Some symptoms may not show up until hours or days later.
Sports related concussions are those that occur while a person is participating in sport activities. These might include football, soccer, baseball, hockey, and other high-contact sports. Non-sports related concussions happen under other circumstances. These could be traffic accidents, work-related injuries, falls, active recreational activities, or violent acts.
