Brain injury and concussions have been a hot topic in recent years. This has been relevant for football, hockey, soccer, and other high impact sports. Speaking from experience, the effects of concussion are usually mild, but in some cases they can have devastating symptoms.
While testing has improved, most practitioners only treat the symptoms of concussion with prevention education and prescribing drugs to mask symptoms. With the increased rate of concussion in car accidents, sports injuries, and falls, it is important to know what to do when a concussion happens.
Your first stop should always be the ER, but your second stop should be your chiropractor for an evaluation of your neck and upper back, to find the underlying neurological issues. While chiropractic does not treat concussion, it facilities healing in the body, leading to overall better function and improved health! There have been numerous studies showing that chiropractic care is essential following a concussion.
At Total Health Chiropractic we always encourage people to be proactive and get your spine evaluated before an injury but we understand accidents happen. So reach us if you need help.
