How do concussions happen?
Concussions http://www.cdc.gov/concussion/ occur when the brain smashes against the inside of the skull. As an example, picture a peach inside of a coffee can. If you shake the coffee can, the peach will become bruised. In much the same way, during whiplash or an automobile accident, the brain is shaken around inside the skull. When the brain hits the skull wall, bruising occurs. This bruising of the brain is called a concussion.
