Résumé

Objective. The aim of this study was to identify whether the addition of an individualised Active Rehabilitation Intervention to standard care influences recovery of young patients who are slow-to-recover following a mTBI. Methods. Fifteen participants aged 15±2 years received standard care and an individualised Active Rehabilitation Intervention which included (1) low- to high-intensity aerobic training (2) sport-specific coordination exercises and (3) therapeutic balance exercises. The following criteria were used to measure the resolution of signs and symptoms of mTBI: (1) absence of postconcussion symptoms for more than 7 consecutive days (2) cognitive function corresponding to normative data and (3) absence of deficits in coordination and balance. Results. The Active Rehabilitation Intervention lasted 49±17 days. The duration of the intervention was correlated with self-reported participation (x-=84.64±19.63%, r=-0.792, p<0.001). The average postconcussion symptom inventory (PCSI) score went from a total of 36.85±23.21 points to 4.31±5.04 points after the intervention (Z=-3.18, p=0.001). Conclusion. A progressive submaximal Active Rehabilitation Intervention may represent an important asset in the recovery of young patients who are slow-to-recover following a mTBI.
