Concussions are a common injury for which patients often present first to primary care physicians. They can affect the day-to-day function of patients in school and work, as well as in sports and recreational activities. Recognizing common physical signs and symptoms after injury facilitates timely diagnosis and treatment, permitting initiation of an active management approach to recovery while preventing secondary injury. For persons with persistent symptoms, active rehabilitation may be utilized, with the goal of returning patients to full function.
