Summary :

Mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI) is a public health issue not only because of its prevalence but also because it is estimated that 15% of people will sustain persistent post-concussion symptoms (PCS). The role of the occupational therapist with this population appears to be the evaluation of either the disorder’s or the intervention’s impact on the individual, and the models in occupation science prove to be the most useful instruments for objectifying the PCS. On the one hand, the deteriorations of the occupational status seem to be a decreasing factor of the competence feeling which can lead to the symptoms’ persistence. On the other hand, occupational therapists’ interventions with this population mean to introduce the performance of former activities progressively. Therefore, they depend on an activity-based plan as therapeutic means. Considering the dimensions impacted in the individuals with MTBI, physical activity seems to have the appropriate therapeutic potential. In fact, it can restore the feeling of competence through personal efficiency, which will improve self-esteem, well-being and quality of life.
