Default Hit Car Door Jamb.. Possible Concussion?

I was covering my head with my right hand while getting into my car, and then I accidentally hit the top of my hand on the door jamb. Luckily, my hand is perfectly fine (no bruise, swelling, redness, pain, etc.). The impact was likely cushioned by a rubber seal enclosing the jamb. Is it possible however that the force from the bump could have jolted my brain and caused a concussion?

No. Great idea using your hand.

Bob19238,

Welcome to NeuroTalk.

Not a chance of causing a concussion.

Think of this. Put your hand on a hard floor and drop a 16 pound bowling ball on it from 1 foot. That is the minimum force to cause a concussion.

Why are you concerned? Hindsight can't change what already happened.
