Concussion management is as much an art as it is a science and a unique management plan for every patient is paramount to success; there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ remedy. Everyone heals at their own rate but success can be had with a disciplined, methodological approach. It is important that you actively participate in the treatment plan and cooperate with your family, teachers, colleagues, healthcare team and most importantly yourself, to help get you back to all you do in tip-top form.
