Sport Med/ER Doc here. Wanted to pass this along

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/31326205?dopt=Abstract
The American College of Emergency Physicians Sport-Related Head Injury Prevention Task Force has released a consensus document on: "Recommendations for the Emergency Department Prevention of Sport-Related Concussion.

I feel a gap in ER recommendations is not highlighting the importance of early subthreshold physical activity after an initial 24-48hr rest period. We should be avoiding recommending complete rest until all symptoms resolve (cocoon therapy). Numerous studies in the sport-concussion literature that early PA leads to faster recovery.
