Concussion Management

Rest and Careful Management of Physical and Cognitive Factors

Patients must not return to high risk activities (e.g., sports, physical education (PE), high speed activity (riding a bicycle or carnival rides), if any postconcussion symptoms are present or if results from cognitive testing show persistent deficits. When symptoms are no longer reported or experienced, a patient may slowly, gradually, and carefully return to their daily activities (both physical and cognitive). Children and adolescents will need the help of their parents, teachers, coaches, athletic trainers, etc. to monitor and assist with their recovery. Management planning should involve all aspects of the patient's life including home life, school, work, and social-recreational activities.
