 A concussion is a direct head trauma caused by an auto accident injury, sports injury, or slip and fall.

Our chiropractors use natural and highly effective practices to assess the damage and help you get relief.


What Is a Concussion, and How Does It Occur?

A concussion is a brain blow or trauma caused by an accident. This traumatic event can affect the normal operation of your brain, leading to symptoms such as headaches and migraines. Since the brain is connected to the spine, you may still experience a concussion when your spine is badly injured after an accident.

When the spine is injured, cerebral fluid won't be able to pass to the brain properly, resulting in a lack of sufficient nutrients for the brain cells, hence the concussions. If you suspect you have a concussion, it is crucial to seek professional help immediately. To prevent further damage, it is important to avoid continuing with sports or any other activities.

Symptoms of Concussions

The signs of concussions vary from person to person, and many individuals may not realize they have them until an expert evaluates their condition. However, here are some common signs that you or a loved one may be suffering from concussions:

  • Headaches and migraines
  • Dizziness/balance problems
  • Confusion and concentration problems
  • Feeling lazy/sluggish
  • Blurry vision
  • Vomiting
  • Sleeping problems
  • Memory loss
  • Loss of taste

Some concussion symptoms may subside within seven days of an auto accident injury, while others may last longer. Whether you have been involved in an accident, sports injury, or slip and fall, our chiropractors can attend to you and help alleviate the symptoms of concussions.

Chiropractic Care for Concussions

Chiropractic care is an effective and non-invasive method for adjusting the spine to improve spinal fluid flow and reduce the effects of concussions. If your spine is misaligned following a traumatic accident, the cerebral spinal fluid may not effectively protect or lubricate the brain as it should.

Additionally, it may not efficiently remove brain waste or provide sufficient nutrients, which can lead to intense and prolonged concussion symptoms. Chiropractors use physical therapy to address spinal disorders and create balance in the nervous system. With multiple sessions, you may begin to see an improvement in your condition.
