Concussion and Screen Time
[Source: Your Therapy Source]
There’s been a lot of debate in the medical community about concussion and screen time. The big question is whether or not people with concussions should be allowed screen time. Recent research took a closer look to determine when one can start using screens again after sustaining a concussion.
JAMA Pediatrics completed a randomized clinical trial in the pediatric and adult emergency departments of a tertiary medical center between June 2018 and February 2020. The 125 participants included 12-25 year olds who went to the emergency room within 24 hours of sustaining a concussion.
