Concussion Treatment

Have you ever fallen and hit your head? Have you ever had a blow to the head from an accident? Have you ever suffered a sports related head injury? If the answer is yes, you might be someone that has suffered a concussion. A concussion is a traumatic brain injury that affects your brain function. Post-Concussion Syndrome (PCS) is a mild or traumatic brain injury that occurs after an injury associated with head or neck trauma. PCS is a complex disorder in which symptoms last for weeks to months after the initial injury that caused a concussion. Symptoms of PCS can include:

  • Headaches and neck pain that does not go away

  • Difficulty concentrating or making decisions

  • Slowness in thinking, speaking, acting, or reading

  • Feeling fatigued

  • Mood changes

  • Change in sleep patterns

  • Light-headedness and dizziness

  • Increased sensitivity to light and sounds

  • Ringing in ears

  • Blurred vision or tired eyes

 

It is important to be evaluated when you have a head injury. Treatment for concussion or post-concussion syndrome involves:

  • Chiropractic adjustments to help restore mobility and alignment in the spine specifically in the neck and base of the skull.

  • Progressive rehabilitation to restore strength and stability in areas affected by injury.

  • Neurological rehabilitation to re-connect brain and cervical spine signaling and promote proper brain neuroplasticity.

  • Proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitative manual therapy to retrain muscle groups and improve feedback to the brain.

 

If you are someone who had suffered a head injury or someone who is experiencing any of the symptoms listed above, call 506-450-0900 and book your consultation with Dr. Everett today.
