|Concussion Recovery Treatment
· Remove the concussed person from work, school, or play immediately after the injury and seek care.
· Encourage plenty of rest with uninterrupted sleep. Sufficient sleep will allow the brain to heal and is necessary for recovery.
· Traumatic brain injury is an evolving process, chemical and metabolic changes occur for days, weeks to months after the impact. It is important to prevent any additional concussions and avoid a second impact syndrome during this period.
· Children and adolescents may recover more slowly due to their continued brain development.
