What Is a Concussion?
A concussion is a traumatic brain injury that often develops because of a blow to the head. A concussion results from the force of the brain moving back and forth inside the head. In some cases, concussions can lead to brain damage and other pain.
What Are the Symptoms of a Concussion?
The symptoms of a concussion vary based on the severity of your injury. You might notice signs like:
- Headaches and migraines
- Blurry vision
- Sleep issues
- Slurred speech
- Memory loss
- Mood swings
- Sensitivity to stimuli, including noise and light
If you notice any of these symptoms, you should speak with one of our professionals as quickly as possible to learn more about concussion care and treatment.
How Can a Chiropractor Treat a Concussion?
Our chiropractors will first seek to reduce your symptoms by supporting your body’s natural healing process. This will include a focus on your nervous and musculoskeletal systems, which can both become injured as a result of a slip and fall accident, sports injury, or auto accident injury. Then, our chiropractors will get to the root of your problem. Often, poor spinal alignment is part of the problem. For example, a blow that causes a concussion can also cause the spine to come out of alignment, significantly impacting your overall wellness.
After checking your spinal alignment, our chiropractors will also consider other treatment options, including manual manipulation and spinal decompression. We may also recommend massage therapy and stretching and strengthening exercises to alleviate pain or discomfort and improve the body’s range of motion.
