Concussion Signs and Symptoms
Some concussion SIGNS (what others can see in an injured athlete):
When in Doubt, Sit Out!
Children and teens with a suspected concussion should NEVER return to sports or recreation activities on the same day the injury occurred.
They should delay returning to their activities until a health care provider experienced in evaluating for concussion says they are symptom-free and provide written clearance to return to activity.
This means, until permitted, not returning to:
• Physical Education (PE) class,
• Sports conditioning, weight lifting, practices and games, or
• Physical activity at recess.
