Graded Aerobic Treadmill Testing in Children and Adolescents With Sports-related Concussion

Graded aerobic treadmill testing is safe, tolerable and useful in evaluating and managing cases of sports-related concussion in children and adolescents. Researchers focused on two goals: first, to assess the safety, tolerability and clinical use of graded aerobic treadmill in young athletes with sports-related concussion; and second, to evaluate clinical outcomes in a subset of young patients with physiological post-concussion disorder who adhered to a submaximal aerobic exercise program. Similar studies have been performed but only in adults. This is the first study to focus exclusively on young athletes. To read more, click here.
