Higher Postconcussion Physical Activity in Children and Adolescents Reduces Symptom Burden at 2 Weeks

20 Feb 2024 • In children and adolescents with acute concussion, engaging in moderate-to-vigorous physical activity (MVPA) up to 259 minutes in the first week and up to 565 minutes over the first 2 weeks postinjury was associated with lower symptom burden at 1 and 2 weeks.

A higher cumulative MVPA volume during the second week was linked to a 48% reduced odds of persisting symptoms after concussion at the 2-week mark.

These findings suggest that MVPA reduced symptoms up to a certain threshold for children and youths but appeared to offer no further benefit in symptom reduction beyond that point.
