Concussion Management Series (Part 4 of 4)

  • Stage 3 – Return…

Following a symptom-free, 14-day period of REST a formal Graduated Return To Play process must be followed…

The GTRP process should only be started when the Player:

  • Has had 14 days rest
  • Is symptom free
  • Is off all medications that modify symptoms (eg painkillers)
  • Has returned to work or studies

The four stages of the GTRP process are:

  1. Light aerobic exercise
  2. Sport specific exercise
  3. Non-contact training drills
  4. Full-contact practise

Each stage of the Adult GTRP is for a minimum of 24 hours.

If ANY symptoms occur while progressing through the GRTP the Player should rest for a minimum of 48 hours, until symptom free, and may then return to the previous stage.

On completion of the GTRP without the presence of symptoms and review by a Doctor the Player may return to playing in full contact.


STOP PRESS… Marianna, who is conducting a study into the effect of concussion in rugby on social cognition will be visiting the club on Thurs, (Nov-29). Please make contact at
