“I was feeling better when a basketball hit me in the back of the head…..”

A recent report from someone suffering with postconcussion syndrome.  This patient was recovering from an injury she had sustained and received a benign hit from a basketball resulting in a resImageurgence of symptoms.  Rest is a key component of recovery from concussion.  Once symptom-free, a gradual resumption of prior activity level may be started. It is best if this exertion can be managed by a physician or other professional with special training in brain injury.
