Chiropractic Care for Concussions at Meyer Medical and Chiropractic
A temporary loss of normal brain function resulting from a brain injury is known as a concussion. A concussion causes transient and immediate alterations in the way the brain functions. If you have had a concussion, you may also experience long-term effects. Chiropractic care can treat these lingering effects from a concussion. We can help you understand the severity of your concussion and the necessary steps to take for recovery here at Meyer Medical and Chiropractic in Orlando and Apopka, FL.
What Is a Concussion?
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 be caused by an auto accident injury, sports injury, slip and fall, or a personal injury.
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.
What Our Chiropractor Can Do for Concussions
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.
