“50% of concussions go unreported.”
What to do if you suspect a concussion
In all suspected cases of concussion, the person should stop the activity right away. Continuing increases their risk of more severe, longer-lasting concussion symptoms, as well as increases their risk of other injury.
Anyone with a suspected concussion should be checked out by a medical doctor.
- Neck pain or tenderness

If any red flag symptoms are present, call an ambulance right away. These may be signs of a more serious injury.
