Chiropractic Care for Concussions
After a concussion is sustained, lasting effects can continue to affect the health and well-being of the injured person. Whether the injury was caused by an auto accident injury, a sports injury, or a slip and fall, an impact strong enough to cause a concussion can result in damage to the vertebrae of the upper spine, which supports the head and neck and allow range of motion in these areas. If these bones are adversely affected by an injury, the patient can experience headaches and migraines, among other unpleasant health complications. If you sustained a concussion, visit our Vancouver chiropractors at Back & Neck Care Chiropractic for treatment.
Concussions vary in severity, from mild to severe. However, even a mild concussion can disrupt the vertebrae of the neck and upper spine, resulting in a long list of ill effects. Common symptoms of a concussion include, but are not limited to:
- Headaches and migraines
- Sleep issues
- Sleep issues
- Loss of strength or range of motion
- Memory loss
Over time, these issues are more likely to get worse if treatment is not sought immediately. With these symptoms, the tendency to turn to pain killers is strong for many people. However, relying on pain medication will only mask the pain and will not address the actual root of the problem.
Here at Back & Neck Care Chiropractic, our chiropractors will work with you closely to reduce the lingering symptoms of a concussion and treat the source of your concussion.
