PRA Training Video 3: Understanding Relative Rest

In this lesson we explain the differences between complete rest and relative rest in a staged concussion recovery process, and provide examples of activities that promote relative rest.

The revised Progressive Return to Activity (PRA) Clinical Recommendation uses the term 'relative rest' to emphasize the importance of early introduction of physical and cognitive activities that do not provoke symptoms following TBI.

Each video in the PRA training series is designed to support primary care providers' ability to manage concussion/traumatic brain injury (TBI).
