Concussion handbook

Informed by experts in youth concussion from the Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital Concussion Centre, the Concussion & You Handbook is designed to help with your concussion management and recovery.

Whether you’re a kid or teenager who recently suffered a concussion, or a parent of someone dealing with concussion, the management techniques laid out in this concussion handbook can help to speed up the path to recovery.

Recovery times from concussion can vary from days to weeks to months, and while some of that is based on the injury itself, you can also help improve your recovery time by learning about how to rest your brain and body, and how to gradually return to school and physical activity.
