Chiropractic for concussion


Understanding concussions and how chiropractic care could help manage pain.

What Is A Concussion?

A concussion is a traumatic brain injury that can cause lasting effects on your brain and prolonged physical symptoms. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that 1.6 million to 3.8 million people in the U.S. experience a concussion each year. Concussions can occur due to motor vehicle accidents, work accidents, sports injuries, falls, or playground accidents.

Common Symptoms Associated With Concussion

There are many symptoms of concussion that can affect your well-being. Symptoms can occur immediately, but other symptoms may show up hours, months, or years later. 


Symptoms of a concussion can include:

  •     Headache

  •     Dizziness

  •     Difficulty with balance and coordination

  •     Fatigue

  •     Difficulty sleeping

  •     Sensitivity to light and sound

  •     Memory difficulties

  •     Confusion or “fogginess”

  •     Difficulty concentrating

  •     Slowed processing

  •     Changes in personality or behavior

  •     Emotional symptoms such as irritability, anxiety, depression, and mood swings

How Can Chiropractic Care Help Those Who've Experienced A Concussion?

Chiropractic care is a non-invasive treatment that addresses whole-body wellness, including the treatment of concussions. Meaning that when we treat your injury, we focus on the relationship of the injury area within the rest of your body and not just one concentrated area affected by the injury. Recovering from any injury is a process and our holistic approach, including treatment for concussion, will help you see lasting results.

Getting your symptoms checked out by a medical doctor along with regular adjustments and chiropractic care, including post-concussion syndrome treatment and concussion headache treatment, are vital parts of recovering from your concussion.

Often the same impact that caused the concussion can affect the cervical spine, causing headaches and other frustrating symptoms. Chiropractic treatment, including physical therapy for bursitis, bursitis treatments, and shoulder bursitis exercises, can help re-align the cervical spine and alleviate neck pain, headaches, and other troubling symptoms. Our concussion center also offers concussion medication options for those in need.
