How to manage your concussion
The concussion recovery timeline
Everyone’s timeline for concussion recovery is a bit different, but there
are some general rules that will help you return to regular life safely.
Using the sleep, energy conservation, relaxation and nutrition
strategies from the beginning of your recovery process will provide
you with the tools and skills necessary to let your brain recover, and
make it easier to begin reintegration into school and then sport.
At Holland Bloorview we recommend that you successfully return to school
without post-concussion symptoms before you move on to returning to
sport. This will reduce your chances of re-injury by moving you through
the stages of lower risk to higher risk activities in the right order.
