NEW Concussion Treatment

Concussions. We seem to hear more about them related to contact sports like rugby, soccer, American football, and hockey. It’s a condition making headlines whether it’s a child knocked unconscious in a local soccer match or a professional hockey player, such as Sidney Crosby, sidelined for months. Statistics state that there are at least 300,000 concussions every year in the United States alone.

Are Concussions Serious?

Concussions are serious. While many of the symptoms are temporary–headache, dizziness, nausea, and/or fatigue–there can be more serious long-term effects such as brain impairment, epilepsy, and vertigo. When a person has a concussion, it alters the brain’s chemical balance and it can take a week or more for the brain to return to normal. Results can be life-threatening if another injury occurs while someone is recovering from the first concussion.

Besides affecting the brain’s chemical makeup, a concussion also causes the spine to become misaligned. Treatment can provide relief from neck pain and headaches associated with a concussion.

Chiropractic Neurology

Chiropractic neurology treats persisting concussion symptoms after the brain has returned to normal. It helps the brain heal from a concussion and stops recurring symptoms.

Ted Carrick a Canadian-born chiropractor pursued a Ph.D. in pioneered chiropractic neurology “brain-based learning. He developed alternative methods to treat concussions. In the mid-1990s, he gained attention for bringing comatose patients out of their vegetative states using stimulation. A program that aired on PBS, entitled Waking up the Brain: Amazing Adjustments, described Carrick as a ‘remarkable healer and teacher.’”. His methods helped Sidney Crosby return to the ice (with no recurrence of concussion symptoms) after traditional treatments failed.

Talk to your chiropractor about any concussion symptoms you or your child may be having. If your symptoms are more serious or continue after traditional treatments, you may end up needing to consult a chiropractor specializing in neurology. Regardless, your chiropractor can start you on the road to recovery and begin the brain healing process.
