Dr. Kriz and Colleagues produced a journal article that examines concussion symptoms across various age groups.

"OBJECTIVES:  (1) To examine how age influences initial symptom presentation following concussion; and (2) to determine whether specific symptom profiles are associated with duration of postconcussion symptoms, and whether they vary by age group.

CONCLUSIONS:Within 21 days after concussion, symptom-reporting behavior seems to be similar across the age spectrum, but the relationship between symptom profiles and time to symptom resolution varies by age. Although overall symptom ratings are beneficial in determining clinical pathways, symptom domain use may provide a beneficial method to determine individualized patient care that differs between children and adolescents after concussion."
