Study: Only Half of Concussion Sufferers Recover in 6 Months

(NewsMax) – A significant number of patients take far longer to recover from a concussion than expected, and they may not be getting the care they need, according to a new study.

Researchers from the United Kingdom who studied concussion patients found that almost half had changes in how regions of the brain communicate with each other. This may cause long-term symptoms, including fatigue, and impaired thinking and memory.

Mild traumatic brain injury can happen in a fall, a sports incident, or from a cycling accident or car crash. CONTINUE
