Young Brains Need Mental Rest to Recover from Concussion

A recent international conference concluded that younger brains need restrictions on mental activity as well as physical activity to recover from concussion.  The fact that teen brains are not fully developed may affect how quickly they recover.  New protocols for concussion recovery stress “cognitive rest” that includes limits on schoolwork video games, and other mental activities.  The traumatic brain injury lawyers at HensonFuerst want parents to recognize the effects concussions can have and be properly armed to deal with the aftereffects.  To more information on the protocols, click on this link to learn more:
