Post Concussion Recommendations
Following a concussion, all risky behaviors and activities should be avoided!
The second injury is always the worst!
A recent study showed that athletes playing just one additional play took 50% longer to recover!
Avoiding high stimulus environments i.e., the grocery store, concerts, and crowds will also help early on with recovery.
REST, Relaxation and Mindfulness
Rest, mindfulness, breathing, true relaxation and self-care should be implemented straight away following injury. Learn more here.
Accommodations for work and school
Early accommodations can make all the difference in recovery as well as keeping you or your child from falling behind in school. Don’t wait for a 504!
