What are the recommended steps for the treatment of a concussion?
General objective is to allow the healing of the first injury to try to prevent a 'second impact syndrome': diffuse brain swelling in the context of a second concussion that occurred while the patient still had symptoms of a previous concussion. This is a rare but potentially fatal complication of concussions.
Consider offering the ACE assistance plan to guide parents and the child (see section XI, 'Resources').
Brain rest: although we have few evidence-based recommendations for brain rest after a concussion, recent research suggests that extreme rest (i.e., bed rest) may hinder recovery after a concussion. In other studies, a certain degree of rest has been found to be beneficial.
Gradual return to physical activity: a step-by-step approach to returning to physical activity is recommended, with each step taking at least 24 hours. If symptoms return, the patient should return to the previous step. The steps are as follows:
The recommended steps for the treatment of a concussion include brain rest and gradual return to physical activity.
The ACE assistance plan is not recommended for the treatment of a concussion.
The second impact syndrome is a common complication of concussions.
