Concussion (also sometimes called mild traumatic brain injury) is the most common form of traumatic brain injury. While most people will recover from a concussion within one to several weeks, about fifteen percent (15%) of people with concussion will continue to experience significant symptoms beyond three months. Some people can experience troublesome symptoms for much longer, which are called persistent symptoms and can sometimes cause considerable distress for the individual and their family.
