Allowing the brain to heal from concussion through rest

Posted on April 10, 2015 10:16 am under Premises Liability

Anyone can be at risk of a concussion, a type of traumatic brain injury that may cause symptoms that affect normal function. Children and older adults, for instance, are more vulnerable to developing concussions when involved in an injurious fall-related incident. Unfortunately, several cases of concussion-causing slips and falls in the country have occurred on unsafe premises.

Doctors advise concussion patients to take rest to fully recover from the traumatic brain injury. This would mean the patient will be advised not to participate in vigorous physical activities until the symptoms go away. Failing to do so will put the patient at risk of a second concussion, which is sometimes fatal. Strenuous mental activities, such as exhausting school work and too much use of a computer, are also discouraged during recovery.
