RISK FACTORS FOR PROLONGED RECOVERY 

If you have concussion-related symptoms more than two weeks following injury, evidence-based concussion consultation and management is recommended. The goal of early intervention is to identify and treat barriers to recovery. With early intervention you can substantially shorten the disruption to your life, sport, work and/or academics. 

The following are risk factors that if present could result in a longer than typical recovery from concussion. 

  • Multiple symptoms following injury

  • Moderate to severe cognitive symptoms

  • Longer duration of post-traumatic headaches and/or migraine

  • Symptoms of depression, anxiety, trauma

 

  • Pre-existing mental health history (anxiety, depression, trauma)

  • Past history of concussion(s)
