Overview of a Concussion
Dr. Ligio Tavarez, Pediatric Emergency Physician with Baptist Children’s Hospital, explains as the patient goes back and forth in a concussion, the brain hits the front part of the skull, and sometimes the back. "There is disruption. Sometimes when this happens the nerve cells suffer damage, and they are associations, smooth connections that are damaged." He also says the skull, the meninges, and the spinal fluid are the mechanisms of cushioning the brain.
