Aerobic exercise may help teen athletes recover faster, better from concussions

Published October 9, 2021


An article in The Washington Post quotes John Leddy on treating teenagers after concussions. Leddy says aerobic exercise is "often the only treatment that adolescent athletes need.” “Teens assigned to the aerobic exercise group were much more likely to adhere to their regimen compared with the kids who stretched instead,” according to the article. That "speaks to another advantage of aerobic exercise," the researchers write: "Its appeal to adolescent athletes."
