A Natural Way to Get Back on Your Feet After a Concussion

a-natural-way-to-get-back-on-your-feet-after-a-concussionPost-concussion syndrome is associated with a variety of symptoms that could occur  after a head injury has taken place. The symptoms are a combination of physical and cognitive issues lasting long after they should have diminished.  In the days after a concussion, normal experiences consist of headaches, dizziness, sleep disturbances, and poor memory or concentration. For those with post-concussion syndrome, the symptoms stay for longer than normal, and will often increase in severity instead of improving over time.

The nervous system goes into a state of elevated awareness following a head injury.  The brain and nerve pathways that sense pain and are responsible for sensations of dizziness are more sensitive than usual. During this time, these signals, even mild ones, are amplified when received by the brain. Time normally brings with it healing and recovery for most injuries. However, if people have post-concussion syndrome, they stay stuck in in this state of heightened awareness, and it could even grow worse.

There is a potential solution for people suffering from these symptoms, even if its been weeks or years since their head trauma. Upper cervical chiropractors specialize in the care and details of the upper spine, which directly affects the central nervous system any time it is out of order.

At Advanced Spinal Care in Redwood City, California, we understand that the nervous system pathways and their ability to function normally is related to correct alignment of the bones in the top part of the neck.  Often, the injury that has caused the concussion has also shifted the uppermost vertebrae in the neck. We use a gentle and precision adjustment technique that properly aligns the upper vertebrae and enables the body to continue in its natural healing process. Many of our concussion patients are able to experience relief from their symptoms after receiving our care.
