Concussion Management: Returning to Work

Returning to Work

Return-to-work planning should be based upon careful evaluation of symptoms and neurocognitive status. To help expedite recovery from MTBI, patients may initially need to reduce both physical and cognitive exertion. Rest is key. Restricting work during initial stages of recovery may be indicated to help facilitate recovery. Repeated evaluation of both symptoms and cognitive status is recommended to help guide management

Until a full recovery is achieved, patients may need to the following supports:

Schedule Considerations:

  • Shortened work day (e.g. 8am-12 noon)
  • Allow for breaks when symptoms increase
  • Reduced task assignments and responsibilities

Safety Considerations:

  • No driving
  • No heavy lifting/No working with machinery
  • No heights due to risk of dizziness, balance problems
