Concussions (mild traumatic brain injury) can result in persistent symptoms and disability. A number of biopsychosocial factors are thought to mediate outcome. Our understanding of the variables that facilitate or impede recovery from concussion/mild traumatic brain injury has been growing rapidly, but applying this knowledge to design effective interventions has lagged behind. Limited evidence exists to guide the prevention and treatment of persistent symptoms. The aim of this Research Topic is to encourage study of interventions that have potential to make patients with concussion/mild traumatic brain injury feel and function better.

We welcome original submissions that focus on a pharmacological, medical device, behavioral, or multimodal interventions designed to improve global recovery or target specific symptoms (e.g., headaches) or impairments (e.g., cognitive dysfunction). Studies may use randomized control trial methodology or other suitable designs, such as experimental withdrawal and repeated baseline designs. Studies involving children or adults, civilian trauma patients, military service members and veterans, or athletes with sport-related concussion are all welcomed. Systematic reviews of interventions will also be considered for this Research Topic. Additionally, articles focused on the psychometric validation of outcome assessments (e.g., clinical trial endpoints), mechanisms of therapeutic benefit, or implementation of evidence-based interventions for concussion (i.e., knowledge translation) may be appropriate.
