Although screen sensitivity is a common symptom following concussion, there is no evidence to suggest that looking at screens is harmful to recovery or will cause any negative effect. We recommend reducing the brightness of your screen if need be or listening to the audio. The best option however is to gradually increase your screen viewing throughout the course as this is also a form of therapy!
