Concussion

REST MAY NOT BE BEST WHEN IT COMES TO CONCUSSION

Prescribed rest is the standard approach for managing concussion. Recent research published in the Journal Neurosurgery, however, suggests that an active, targeted approach might provide better outcomes for some patients.

“Matching treatments to specific symptoms, impairments, and clinical profiles may … improve recovery after concussion,” according to the statement by panel of medical and other experts.

While more research is needed, the panel cites emerging evidence that “multiple active rehabilitation strategies” might be more effective than simply recommending rest for every patient with concussion. Michael W. Collins, PhD, of University of Pittsburgh is lead author of the new report. “No single treatment strategy will be effective for all patients after concussion because of the individualized natures of the injury and its clinical consequences,” Dr. Collins and coauthors write. “Research is needed on concussion clinical profiles, biomarkers, and the effectiveness and timing of treatments.
