Post-concussion syndrome (PCS) can have a huge impact on a person if he or she does not seek the care of an upper cervical chiropractor as soon as possible. Allowing this type of injury to go uncared for can lead to problems with the way one’s brain functions. This is often due to a misalignment in the upper neck vertebrae that occurred during the accident. Let’s take a look at what happened in one woman’s situation.
Post-Concussion Syndrome’s Ill Effects
A 75-year-old woman had fallen 10 years previously and hit the back of her head, rendering her unable to speak. She was taken to the hospital and underwent various tests including an MRI and CT scan. She followed up with three months of neurological examinations. She did not find any help to her situation. Her symptoms included:
- Low energy
- Laziness in her left eye
- Seizures brought about by activity or certain postures
- Unsteady and unbalanced movement when walking
She suffered these symptoms for 10 years and finally began to see a neurologist. He determined that her condition was due to a misalignment in her upper cervical spine because of the concussion she sustained 10 years earlier and suggested that she seek the care of an upper cervical chiropractor.
The upper cervical chiropractor focused on helping correct this misalignment in her neck. Once this was done, the patient’s symptoms were quickly and painlessly reduced or resolved. She was able to go about her daily activities feeling much healthier and happier.
