Concussion/Mild Traumatic Brain Injury Guideline Brochures

Child specific Return to Activity guidelines, which are more conservative than adult guidelines, were developed to guide management when youth sustain a concussion. Implementation of these new pediatric specific recommendations is an important addition to prevention of subsequent concussions during vulnerable recovery periods. These guidelines aim to facilitate recovery by preventing prolonged symptomatology, repeat injury and secondary sequelae such as depression and anxiety.
