Post concussion syndrome happens when symptoms last more than 7 to 10 days after the initial accident or injury. These symptoms can include headaches and dizziness/vertigo. In some cases, these symptoms can last for months, years, or even the rest of the person’s life.
Although chiropractic care cannot fix damage to the brain, it can help the body enter a healthy state that encourages the brain to repair itself. Dizziness and vertigo can be treated with chiropractic care that helps keep the spine aligned, and with advice on exercises and stretches that help the body regain its sense of balance. This is called vestibular rehabilitation therapy. Combined with physical therapy, this can reduce symptoms of dizziness over time and help the patient regain their mobility. Concussion can also be associated with whiplash, which causes damage to the neck that can be painful, and can also be resolved with chiropractic.
Upper body and neck manipulation is known to relieve headaches, including those caused by concussions. It helps return balance to the nervous system, which can then reduce the swelling in the brain that is the root cause of the symptoms. This kind of care can reduce stubborn symptoms that often resist more traditional approaches. Also, a chiropractor can monitor symptoms and progress and help an athlete return to play in a quicker, but also safer manner, by making sure they do not return to play before they are ready, whilst helping resolve symptoms faster.
Young athletes in particular can be hard to convince to comply with a rehabilitation program, whilst taking longer to recover than adults.
Dr. Atkinson, a Tallahassee chiropractor, can help resolve concussion symptoms and get a patient back to full activity faster. Concussion victims should Fiorini Chiropractor for a consultation and find out what they can do to help problems such as lingering dizziness or headaches that persist several weeks after the accident.
