The Impact of Post-Concussion Syndrome

Concussions account for more than 100,000 ER trips every year. Unfortunately, when it comes to sports stars and child athletes alike, there is a lot of pressure to downplay the seriousness of the condition and get back to playing as soon as possible.

Research has shown the impact this has, especially on kids. Repeat concussions can lead to missed school days, academic struggles, and eventually losing out on playing the very sport that caused the injuries in the first place.

Seeking Relief from Post-Concussion Syndrome

If you are suffering from the symptoms noted above after a head injury, even if the trauma was considered minor at the time, don’t be afraid to seek a second opinion. An upper cervical chiropractor can help you to know if a misalignment of the atlas took place when the injury occurred. When this top bone in the spine is out of place, it can affect vertebral blood flow and brainstem function. All of the symptoms noted above may result.

In Chattanooga, TN, our practice is completely focused on correcting upper cervical misalignments using a safe and gentle adjustment. After a thorough examination that pinpoints the specific misalignment, patients receive a personalized adjustment. Adjustments are only provided when needed due to a misalignment being detected. Many patients come back for occasional checkups to ensure the atlas is still in place and benefits of a properly aligned upper cervical spine will continue.

If you are suffering from the lingering effects of a concussion, no matter how long ago the injury occurred, schedule a consult with us today.
