Concussions can occur from a blow to the body that causes the head to move rapidly back and forth. Even a "ding," "getting your bell rung," or what seems to be a mild bump or blow to the head can be serious. Athletes who sustain repeat concussions are also at a higher risk for brain swelling permanent damage and even death.
