Concussion Recovery Time

How Long Does a Concussion Last?

By: Ehren Allen, Certified Manual Therapist/Physical Therapist

A concussion can take a short period of time or many months to fully recover. Once diagnosed with a concussion, the individual is better when they are better. There are some findings upon diagnosis that may identify individuals at risk for a prolonged recovery from a concussion. “For an athlete suffering from a concussion, it is important to seek the assistance of an appropriate health care provider who is knowledgeable with the management of concussions and their return to sport”, states Dr. Michael Yorio, the Jacksonville Jaguars Internal Medicine Physician and Internal Medicine/Sports Medicine Physician at the Jacksonville Orthopaedic Institute in Jacksonville, Florida.
