The Value of Chiropractic Care Following a Concussion

The Value of Chiropractic Care Following a Concussion

Did you know that, according to a CDC report, in 2017, an estimated 15% of high school students experienced one or more concussions? Moreover, 6% sustained two or more. Those who participate in contact sports such as football, soccer, hockey and snowboarding are at particular risk.

What Is a Concussion?

A concussion is a form of traumatic brain injury that damages brain function. The injury is typically caused by a blow to the head. It’s essential to understand that you don’t have to experience a major impact to sustain a concussion.

Those who have experienced a concussion frequently have one or more of the following symptoms:

  • Confusion
  • Dizziness
  • Headaches
  • Fatigue
  • Nausea
  • Ringing in the ears

How Long Does It Take to Heal?

When the brain experiences a concussion, its chemical composition is changed. It can take up to a week or even longer for the brain to stabilize again. It’s crucial for the brain to heal fully before resuming high contact activities again.

Post-Concussion Management Through Chiropractic

You may not know that chiropractic is an effective way to safely and naturally manage head trauma. We can see the signs of brain injury, which enables us to begin care right away. The specificity we use and the Torque Release Technique (TRT) allow us to provide young patients with effective care following a concussion. The technique uses a gentle touch with either the hands or a small instrument called an Integrator.

If your child has sustained a concussion, contact us today. Some concussions are misdiagnosed or left unaddressed. Mention this blog, and your child will receive a complimentary exam.

    • Dr. Ann-Marie and Dr. Jen have been absolutely amazing! I worked with both of them during my pregnancy and I feel it truly helped me have an easy and fast delivery with my second child. They have been fantastic and I have already continued my sessions with them even after pregnancy.

    • I started getting adjusted at 12 weeks pregnant and continued throughout my pregnancy. To say it was a game changer is an understatement. I felt so good my entire pregnancy and I’d say that’s because of the care at Compass. My baby girl is 3 months and has been getting adjusted since 4 weeks old. We love Compass!!
