Young children with concussions had their symptom changes plateau within two weeks of injury, compared with four weeks among preadolescents and teens, Canadian researchers reported in JAMA Pediatrics. The findings, based on 2013 to 2015 data involving 3,063 youths ages 5 to 18, also showed that gender played a role in symptom recovery only among adolescents, with less than 50% of teen girls achieving full recovery 12 weeks post-injury.
