Should you do exercise after a concussion?
No would be the obvious answer, but i'm still wondering why.
When I was maybe 11 I had a mild concussion after I slipped and hit my head at swim practice. I didn't really feel anything other than a light pain in the back of my head right after, so I continued swimming for the rest of the practice.
Looking back at it, it probably wasn't the best idea. But, I was 11 so you can't really blame me.
I don't have any permanent damage from it, fortunately. My question is, what could have happened if I had a more severe concussion? Or if I did more vigorous exercise after it?
I was reading a book and the topic of concussions came up so I guess I'm just curious.
