Although the absolute definition is often debated, concussion can be defined as a temporary disruption in normal brain function after a mechanical impact or transmission of force through cerebral tissue. A frequent misconception in the diagnosis is that an individual must have ‘lost consciousness’ to have become concussed; this is not the case. A temporary loss of function may\ud be manifested as blurring of vision, confusion or unsteadiness
