Possibly the Most Comprehensive mTBI Guidelines


The Ontario Neurotrauma Foundation has released their updated Guidelines for Concussion/mTBI & Persistent Symptoms: Second Edition, and it may be the most comprehensive/complete to this point.

The guidelines stretch from diagnosis through return with emphasis on “hang-ups” that can come along with recovery, here are the modules;

  • Diagnosis
  • Management
  • Sports Related
  • General Recommendations for Diagnosis/Assessment of Persistent Symptoms
  • General Recommendations for Management of Persistent Symptoms
  • Post-Traumatic Headache
  • Persistent Sleep/Wake Disturbances
  • Persistent Mental Health Disorders
  • Persistent Cognitive Disorders
  • Persistent Vestibular and Visual Disturbances
  • Persistent Fatigue
  • Return to Activity/Work/School

Of special note and to reference is all of these recommendations are for adults. Β That being said some of this can be “creatively adapted” for those in high school.

Here is the .pdf for theΒ Sports Related Concussions/mTBI. Β All of it is worthy looking over; not only for athletic trainers but doctors as well.
