Actively Recruiting: Concussion

Summary

Have you had a concussion? Have you had post-concussion symptoms for more than 2 weeks?  You may be eligible to take part in this research study. We want to learn if a low intensity exercise program can help youth with concussion symptoms.  This study will help us develop approaches to caring for youth after concussion and helping them return to the activities that are important in their lives (sport, school, social life.)
