Concussion Facts vs Myths

The field of concussion research is evolving quickly, and staying on top of the latest knowledge can be a challenge. Dr. Roger Zemek of the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) and 360 Concussion Care helps cut through the noise by breaking down common concussion facts vs myths:

Fact or Myth? “Younger children take longer to recover from concussions, compared with older teens.


Fact or myth? “Boys are at a higher risk of concussion, and concussion recovery takes longer in boys.”


Fact or Myth? Following a concussion, youth may safely resume only once they are symptom-free.
