#30 - Return to Life

What does “returning to life after a concussion” mean? You’ve heard about return to play, return to work, and return to learn. Return to Life brings all those together and more.

We know that concussions affect every aspect of a person’s life. When you get a concussion, it can make going to school, spending time with friends and family, and doing everyday tasks seem a little bit harder. Some people experience symptoms that make it challenging to be in busy environments, to read, or to drive. Part of concussion recovery and knowing you’re fully recovered means you’re able to return to life.

For healthcare providers, returning to life means you have a responsibility to help your patients recover as fully as they possibly can. Concussion is a treatable injury, and as concussion care providers, you can help actively target deficits that an individual experiences after concussion. You can identify the areas where a person most needs help, and recommend treatment and rehabilitation that helps them get better. No more telling patients to rest until they feel better.

You have the tools and resources to make sure your patients can return to those activities most important to them and to their daily lives, whether that be driving, sports, or getting back to school or work. Check out ConcussionManagement.com to learn more about how you can take an active role in helping your concussion patients return to life.
