Knowing what to do after a concussion can be challenging for both children and their care givers. This video on Concussion management and Return to Learn by Dr.Mike Evans speaks to what steps one must follow during the recovery period following a concussion.
Dr.Mike Evans emphasizes the importance of “healing your brain” by easing off on physical, cognitive, emotional activities and focusing on the quality of sleep obtained through the resting period. In his concussion management strategy, he suggests the use of the 4Ps:
- Prioritizing activities
- Plan which activities to do and when
- Pace yourself
- Position yourself in environments that facilitate rest and recovery
