Return to Sports After Mild Traumatic Brain Injury

Metabolic activity in the brain is likely disrupted for approximately 30 days after a Mild Traumatic Brain Injury (MTBI). Activity should be markedly reduced until the patient is symptom free. A graduated return to cognitive and general physical activity can be undertaken once the patient is symptom free. The patient should not return to activities that risk a blow to the head at least until symptoms cannot be provoked or until at least 30 days after the initial injury. If the MTBI is serious or repetitive, the patient should not return to sports activities. Return to activity should be done only in consult with a physician experienced in management of MTBI.
