What a Chiropractor Can Do for Concussions
If you suspect that you might have a concussion, it is very important to get treatment as soon as possible. Usually, initial diagnostic testing will be done by a sports medicine specialist or another type of physician. However, if you are dealing with ongoing symptoms from a concussion, you will benefit from chiropractic care.
A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury that is caused by a rapid movement that forces the brain to suddenly move within the skull. This is an unnaturally abrupt motion that may damage your brain. Concussions can occur as a sports injury, as a result of a slip and fall injury, or as an auto accident injury.
Conventional medicine generally concentrates on two issues when it comes to concussions. These would be prevention and management of symptoms through medication. Prevention is very important because it can help prevent a traumatic brain injury in the first place, as well as prevent repeated brain injuries, which can be even more catastrophic.
Chiropractic care allows you to take this treatment a little bit further by looking at the peripheral concerns surrounding the concussion as well. Chiropractic care can treat nervous system dysfunction, which often goes unaddressed. When you first visit our office, our chiropractor will assess your condition to determine the extent to which your concussion has disrupted your nervous system. Treatment will vary depending on the severity of your concussion as well as other injuries you may have sustained.
