Symptom spikes after concussion may not yield clinically significant events

August 24, 2016

Children who had concussions showed that symptom exacerbations are common from one day to the next and are mostly temporary and overall not detrimental to recovery; thus, it is safe to return to school and sports at a gradual pace, according to findings.

“Little is currently known about the incidence, natural history and clinical significance of activity-related symptom exacerbations after pediatric concussion,” Noah D. Silverberg, PhD, clinical assistant professor, divisions of physical medicine and rehabilitation and neurology, department of medicine, University of British Columbia in Vancouver, and colleagues wrote. “The present study aims to characterize symptom exacerbations (“spikes”) as well as their antecedents and potential consequences.”
