This descriptive, qualitative study describes the OT process used by expert practitioners for adults with persistent mild traumatic brain injury symptoms in outpatient concussion clinics. OTs are uniquely trained to return persons to their everyday activities, without requiring a military or sport background. This evidence empowers practitioners to advocate for the client and for the professional to be part of the rehabilitation team and raise the perceived value of the profession.
