Concussions are Serious and Supporting the Body’s Ability to Heal is Key.
A concussion is a serious brain injury resulting from an impact to the head. The brain will need time to heal before full function is regained. The diagnosis of a concussion is based on the symptoms of dizziness, vomiting, nausea, headaches, memory loss, sensitivity to light, fatigue, and an inability to concentrate.
Chiropractic care can help to alleviate many of the symptoms as well as help the body maintain its optimum healing ability. When Sidney Crosby of the Pittsburgh Penguins suffered a series of concussions, he recruited a chiropractor as a key member of his recovery team.
More often than not, the event that caused the concussion will also create other issues in the spine that, when left unchecked, can lead to other health challenges. By having a chiropractor as a key member of your recovery team, you will set yourself up for optimum healing and a faster recovery.
