Mild Traumatic Brain Injury (MTBI)

Annually at The Montreal Children’s Hospital, we see over 2,500 children and adolescents with head injuries, ranging from minor to severe.

A mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI) (frequently referred as a concussion), is a disturbance in brain function that can be caused by a direct or indirect hit to the head or body.

If your child’s symptoms are not resolved in approximately two weeks following the injury, further consultation by the Neurotrauma Program at the Montreal Children’s Hospital is recommended.
