Concussions can in some cases be a minor injury, but in other cases a concussion can be rather serious. A concussion happens when you experience a sudden hit to the head, causing the brain to move abruptly, which may cause brain damage. Symptoms of a concussion include blurry vision, headache, dizziness, noise sensitivity, memory loss, ringing in the ears, and nausea, just to name a few. In minor cases, you will most likely be advised to not engage in screen activities, don’t drive, relax, and stay away from stimulants. In more serious cases of a concussion, in addition to medicated management, you will likely be advised to visit a chiropractor.
A chiropractor will address the peripheral concerns regarding your injury. A chiropractor will likely form a treatment plan specific to your needs whether it be mentally, physically, or emotionally. Additionally, a chiropractor will look for any misalignments that may be causing you current discomfort.
When you experience a concussion, it’s important to first visit the ER or a doctor right away. If you are looking for further treatment, please contact a chiropractor to meet your post-concussion injury needs. It’s important to not let your concussions go untreated and unmonitored to ensure that there are no underlying issues.
