Purpose of Review This article summarizes the current literature on the acute and outpatient assessment, management, and treatment of mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI). Recent Findings Emerging research indicates that there are different clinical profiles, or patterns of symptoms and deficits, that can occur due to mTBI. Advancements in assessment tools allows for improved detection of mTBI and delineation of the clinical profile after injury. Experts advocate for the development of an individualized treatment plan for specific symptoms and deficits from mTBI, rather than a Bone-size-fits-all^ approach to managing the injury.
