Concussions

What are Concussions?

Concussions are mild brain injuries that are rather traumatic. It is normally a result of an impact to your head. Many people suffer whiplash-type injuries which could cause them also. Did you know that a chiropractor can help with a concussion? We see many patients that have recently recovered from concussions and other traumatic brain injuries here at Diamond State Chiropractic in Newark.

Symptoms

Symptoms can range from mild to severe. Some of these symptoms include:

  • neck stiffness or pain
  • Head pressure
  • Headache
  • Dizziness
  • Confusion
  • Sleep problems
  • Taste and smell problems
  • Slurred speech
  • Blurry vision
  • Verbal response problems
  • Fatigue
  • Lack of concentration
  • Tinnitus
  • Nausea/Vomiting
  • Mood swings
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Irritability
  • Light and noise sensitivity

Some of these symptoms may not appear right away as they may take hours, days, or sometimes even weeks to begin.

Chiropractic Care

Chiropractors focus on both prevention and medicated management to control symptoms for a concussion. Many people may just choose to go the route of wearing a helmet while they are playing sports to protect their heads. Care from a chiropractor goes one step further in treating a concussion. Peripheral concerns are further addressed during this special type of care. Many specialists will try to get to the root cause instead of just handing the patient pain meds. The dysfunction often lies in the nervous system, and this is what chiropractors will try to correct.

Your first visit’s primary focus will be on your medical history and any medications that you may be taking currently. They will also need to know of any symptoms you are experiencing. Depending on what your symptoms are and the severity of your condition overall, your treatment plan may consist of spinal decompression, physical therapy, or manual manipulation. Gait abnormalities and headaches tend to be the root cause of symptoms and this is what will more than likely get addressed during your visit.

Keep in mind that rest, time, and patience will do your body great justice when trying to heal from a concussion. It does not matter whether you receive chiropractic care or not. These three things will help you speed up your recovery. It is very possible to heal from a concussion if the necessary steps are taken. Avoid pushing yourself as that will only add to your stress and anxiety. All medical professionals can agree that time is often the best medicine for treating a concussion.
