I read this article from Outiside magazine the other day and felt the need to write about it quickly. This information needs to become viral. It's always unfortunate when important information like this takes so long to trickle down to primary healthcare professionals. I had no idea! I like to read (a lot), so I was mad that I hadn't read about this sooner. Oddly enough, I was chatting with a patient yesterday about our previous histories with concussions and she mentioned that when she was younger and recovering from a concussion, she felt so couped up that she started challenging herself with balance exercises and whatnot (i.e. ignoring the rest advise). Worked for her, and clearly active rehab works for most with concussions!
The article is quick, so please take a few moments to read it.
Thanks to Mike Reoch for posting the link to the article in our Massage Therapy facebook group.
