Postconcussion symptoms after head trauma: Interpretation and treatment

Academic Article


  • Postconcussion symptoms frequently present significant barriers to recovery after head injury. For most patients, emphasis on either organic or functional factors as the sole basis for such symptoms is unwarranted. In addition to the psychologic and behavioral impact of such deficits, recognition of cognitive deficits arising from head injury is an important means of comprehending postconcussion symptoms. We recommend structured recovery programs involving the matching of level in treating postconcussion symptoms. © 1986 Southern Medical Association.
