My daughter had a mild concussion 3 weeks ago playing soccer.She did all the follow ups with doctors and they cleared her.When she practices and pushes herself a little she gets headaches,should I be overly concerned?

Hello. Thank you for your message.

A concussion is a mild traumatic brain injury that usually happens after a blow to the head.  Post-concussion syndrome is a complex disorder in which various symptoms (such as headaches and dizziness) last for weeks and sometimes months after the injury that caused the concussion.  We cannot know if this is the case with your daughter, but I would advise speaking with her doctor about the headaches. If only to ease your mind that is well.
