Abstract

Patients with concussion symptoms beyond two weeks after the initial injury are diagnosed with Post-Concussion Syndrome (PCS). Adolescents may have longer recoveries. There is no standard PCS treatment. Recent studies show a potential for light exercise to facilitate recovery. These studies are loosely constructed and contain small sample sizes with broad age ranges. Our study expands upon prior knowledge by implementing a systematic and aggressive active rehabilitation (AR) protocol in a diverse sample of adolescents at nearly double prior sample sizes.
