Concussions are complex injuries with a wide range of outcomes.
Because every case is different, there is no simple timetable for recovery. Some people recover in days, others require weeks or months and some may endure long-term effects.
Any level of a concussion can be a serious medical issue that requires prompt care by a health professional trained in managing concussions.
To avoid repeat injury, it's crucial to manage concussions until complete recovery.
