Abstract

Clinical Scenario: Recent studies have examined the effects of prolonged rest following a concussion. Prolonged rest can have negative effects on adolescent individuals. Further studies have been done that individuals with post-concussion syndrome can benefit from active rehabilitation.

Clinical Question: Following a concussion for an adolescence, does active rehabilitation improve post-concussive symptoms in individuals who are slow to recover?

Summary Of Key Findings: After a thorough literature search, 6 articles were relevant to the clinical question. Out of the 6 studies, 2 are Randomized Control Trials,1 Case Series, 1 Clinical Report, 1 Retrospective Analysis, and 1 Quasi-experimental control group. 5 of the 6 studies concluded that having active rehabilitation incorporated into their rehabilitation program for slow to recover concussion improved their symptoms. One of the studies stated that it does not help post concussion syndrome as a whole, but does increase energy level and balance, decrease anger, and increases quality of life.

Clinical Bottom Line: There is sufficient evidence to suggest that having a rehabilitation program include Active Rehabilitation in adolescents suffering from slow recovery for a concussion can thoroughly increase their health and well-being and can help provide relief for concussion symptoms.
