What Is a Concussion?
A concussion is defined as a brain injury. The brain tissue can be impacted by hitting the skill. This usually happens as a result of a head injury. Concussions are often seen as a result of a sports-related injury. A concussion is a serious health condition. Inflammation in the brain can continue after the original injury. Some people even experience long-term effects of concussions.
Symptoms of a Concussion
A concussion is always preceded by an impact to the head. This could have been the result of a sports injury, car accident, fall, or some other type of injury. Following the impact, an individual may experience the following types of symptoms:
- Neck pain
People who experience some of types of symptoms often have longer recovery times.
Can Our Chiropractor Help?
Following a concussion, it is a good idea to have your neck examined by our chiropractor. The neck can be injured by the impact that caused the concussion. If the neck is knocked out of alignment, it can start to affect many systems and parts of the body, which may contribute to dizziness. Misalignment of the cervical spine is almost always associated with a concussion.
Our chiropractor will be able to realign the spine with a spinal adjustment. The treatment will also help with headaches if they are present. When the spine is out of alignment it can cause problems with the autonomic nervous system. This system is vital to the healing process during concussion recovery. It will be difficult to fully recover if your spine is out of alignment.
Regular chiropractic care can help keep your body in its best shape. This is especially important for athletes, who are at more risk for concussions than most people.
Repetitive concussions can pose a distinct threat to neurological health. Athletes who have experienced several concussions should keep a close watch on their health. Our chiropractor can help with concussion relief.
