Many of us have been in situations where we had to “walk it off” or get back on duty. This is a great article on head injuries and you can see the relationship between sports head injuries and TBIs sustained in training or combat missions. (Rob)

“Recovering from even a mild concussion requires total physical and mental rest. We’re talking no TV, loud noises, bright lights, reading, texting or screen usage of any kind until all symptoms are gone. Then, return to play is a gradual, graduated and well-monitored progression, starting with light aerobic activity and then progressing to no contact sport-specific activity, drills, training and, finally, competition. Any return of symptoms takes you back to the beginning.”
