After a concussion, an athlete should only return to sports practices with the approval and under the supervision of their health care provider. When available, be sure to also work closely with your team’s certified athletic trainer.

A student with a concussion should be seen by a health care professional experienced in evaluating for concussion. A health care professional can make decisions about a student’s readiness to return to school based on the number, type and severity of symptoms experienced by the student. The health care professional should also offer guidance about when it is safe for a student to return to school and appropriate levels of cognitive and physical activity.
