Study shows concussion recovery can reverse after return to activity
from HealthDay News
Athletes who seem to have recovered from a concussion may actually show a subtle worsening in a particular mental ability after they return to exercise, a small study suggests. The findings come from a study of 19 high school athletes who suffered a concussion and then got medical clearance to return to physical activity — most often football, although a few were on soccer, wrestling or volleyball teams. Researchers found that for 12 of those athletes, a particular mental ability that had been improving post-concussion reversed course once they were up and moving again.
