Understanding Concussions in Glendale, California

Understanding Concussions in Glendale, California

Children, Sports Injuries, Injury Care, Injury Recovery, Concussion, Head InjuryConcussions can come about due to automobile accidents, sports injuries, or being shaken violently. Chances are whiplash has also occurred. Whiplash happens when the muscles of the neck are over-extended.
A common misconception is that one must be knocked unconscious in order to have a concussion. This is not always the case. Concussions are traumatic head injuries that can change the way the brain functions. They are usually temporary. Symptoms can be subtle, not even showing up for days or weeks later. Some people do not even realize that they have sustained a concussion. What can a person look for to tell if he or she has suffered a concussion?
  • Feeling as if in a fog, confusion
  • Abnormal headaches or feeling of pressure in the head
  • Loss of memory about the trauma
  • Seeing stars or feeling dizzy
  • Nausea and/or vomiting
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Delayed answers to questions
  • Slurred speech
  • Tiredness
  • Looking dazed
  • Sensitivity to light and sound
  • Bruising or broken blood vessels
  • Personality changes

What to Do if Concussion Symptoms Persist

If a person feels he or she may have suffered a concussion, even if it was some time ago, and he is still having symptoms, it is vital to get treatment for it. The first p
lace to start is by seeking the care of an upper cervical chiropractor. We will focus our attention on the top two bones of the neck. These vertebrae are susceptible to damage because of their position and flexibility. A misalignment of only ¼
of a millimeter can be the reason for lingering concussion symptoms.
Once we have determined that the patient actually does have a misalignment, we can begin by establishing a treatment plan. We use gentle, effective techniques to realign the spine that do not require popping or twisting. Patients who are suffering from concussions or post-concussion syndrome have reported seeing improvement in their symptoms, some in only a couple of visits.
