Post-concussion syndrome can include a great number of symptoms associated with an injury to the head. These symptoms, both cognitive and physical, can continue long after an injury occurs. Some symptoms of post-concussion syndrome include:
- Sleep Problems
- Concentration Difficulties
- Poor Memory
When a person suffers from post-concussive syndrome, these symptoms may grow worse over time rather than getting better.
A head injury sends the nervous system into a highly aware state. This is the cause of many of the symptoms since pain pathways are amplified. This can occur even if the brain injury seems fairly mild. These neural pathways should return to normal over time. However, when a person experiences post-concussion syndrome, the condition remains the same or even gets worse.
Natural Treatment for Post-Concussion Syndrome
Even if you have suffered from post-concussion syndrome for months or years, you can still receive natural relieve. This is because the problem often goes back to a misalignment of the C1 and C2 vertebrae caused by the initial injury. An upper cervical chiropractor like Dr. Armen Manoucherian in Glendale California can examine your upper neck and perform gentle adjustments to correct the problem.
When the misalignment is fixed, the nervous system can repair itself and go back to operating normally. The result is a resolution of the symptoms of post-concussion syndrome. Dr. Armen will be happy to perform an examination to determine if upper cervical chiropractic is the right solution for your condition.
