“No player should return to play on the same day he was injured, and no player should return to play without an individualized return-to-play care plan supervised by a brain injury specialist” Michael Sefton, Ph.D.
It is now well known that rest is the key to recovery following a sports-related concussion. Post-injury testing is available at the Concussion Assessment and Management Program that may bring to light subtle neurocognitive signs of lingering concussion. Athletes should be symptom free for 7-10 days prior to beginning a return-to-play plan. Contact Dr. Sefton for assistance with managing return to play, return to school and return to work when recovering from concussion.
