  • Post Category:health / kids

Concussion symptoms can last for days to months but a new review published in the Journal of the American Osteopathic Association finds that younger children often suffer significantly longer than teens or adults.

Children with ADHD, depression and anxiety may also experience more prolonged symptoms.
