"Rest isn't best."

That's the takeaway from a new study out of Children's National Hospital in Washington, DC, that looked at more than 1,600 kids ages 5 to 18 who'd suffered a concussion in Canada's nine pediatric emergency departments.

Reporting in the journal JAMA Network Open, researchers found that kids who went back to school 14 days after suffering a concussion had a lower symptom burden than kids who stayed away from school for at least two weeks.

"But the earlier a child can return to school with good symptom management strategies and with appropriate academic supports, the better that we think that their recovery will be."

What's more, the earlier kids returned to school, the more likely they were to be symptom-free within 14 days, reports the New York Times.
