Abstract

Active rehabilitation of sport injuries is a concept familiar to athletes and those caring for them. Rehabilitation goals aim to optimize recovery efficiency and diminish chances of repeat injury. Rehabilitation programs take many aspects of recovery and wellness into consideration including physical, social, and psychologic components. Ultimately, this is important in the recovery process after concussion. In this article we introduce the largely unexplored concept of multidimensional concussion rehabilitation and discuss physical, psychologic, social, and sport-specific issues. As well, we propose future directions in this field.
