Concussion (also sometimes called mild traumatic brain injury) is the most common form of traumatic brain injury. A new study initiated by ONF (not yet published), found that there were 148,710 concussions diagnosed in Ontario in 2013. (Bayley et al, 2016) Most people will recover whether it takes one or several weeks, however 15-20% of people who sustain a concussion have longer, potentially difficult and persistent symptoms that interfere with their functioning and daily lives.
