Behavioral Profile Matching: A Precision Medicine Approach to Concussion Rehabilitation

At least 1 in 5 people who sustain a concussion will have persistent symptoms and difficulties with daily activities. The researchers have identified two unhelpful coping styles following a concussion - avoidance and endurance. Individuals who engage in avoidance behavior may benefit from a different type of treatment than those who engage in endurance behavior. The researchers will evaluate whether assigning individuals to a specific psychologically-informed treatment tailored to their coping style is practical, acceptable, and beneficial for their recovery.

Behavioral - Graded exposure therapy

Gradually increased contact with avoided sensory stimuli (e.g., light, noise, movement) and activities (e.g., mental exertion, physical exercise, stressful activities) in order to increase tolerance.

Behavioral - Pacing + mindfulness

Shifting from symptom-contingent to time-contingent activity stopping rules, minimizing activity level peaks (excessive endurance behavior) and valleys (prolonged periods of recuperative rest) to improve overall functioning.
