An observational study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association is part of a growing body of evidence suggesting that long periods of rest may not help concussion patients recover, according to UB researchers.

.

The study tells us that strict rest after a concussion is not the way to go. What it doesnt tell us is whether exercise is definitely better.

Newly Published Study Does Not Prove Causation

.

UB researchers first reported in 2010 that sub-threshold physical activity was therapeutic in athletes and non-athletes who had a concussion. They note, however, that the new study by Canadian researchers still doesnt prove causation.

.

The study tells us that strict rest after a concussion is not the way to go. What it doesnt tell us is whether exercise is definitely better, says John J. Leddy, MD, clinical professor of orthopaedics and medical director of the UB Concussion Management Clinic.

.

UB Leading Randomized, Controlled Clinical Trial

.

Because the new study is observational, it doesnt control for possible confounding factors as would be the case in a randomized, controlled clinical trial, in which participants are randomly assigned to an intervention or a control group, he adds.

.

Thats the goal of a study Leddy is currently conducting. It is the first randomized, controlled clinical trial of individualized exercise for the treatment of sport-related concussions in adolescents within the first week after injury.

.

Leddy is conducting it with co-investigator Barry S. Willer, PhD, professor of psychiatry and director of research for the UB Concussion Management Clinic.

.

Our study hypothesis is that early, controlled exercise below the threshold where symptoms are exacerbated will speed recovery from concussion, Leddy says.

.

Weve always maintained that the level of physical activity after a concussion should be individualized and should always stay below the level where it would exacerbate symptoms.
