Concussions are brain injuries that can cause headaches, nausea, and loss of coordination. If you suspect that you sustained a concussion, you should seek medical attention immediately. At Chiropractic Centers of Drs. Campanella & Olivacz in Bel Air and Havre de Grace, MD, we provide various treatments to ease any uncomfortable symptoms and improve your overall health.
Causes of Concussions
Before we discuss how chiropractic care can be effective for concussions, we have to speak about how you may have encountered that injury. A concussion is a traumatic brain injury that may develop after you sustain a forceful blow to your head.
For instance, you may develop a concussion after being involved in a motor vehicle accident. Hitting your head on the steering wheel or dashboard during a motor vehicle accident is enough to cause a concussion. Not only that, but it can also occur at your workplace due to a slip and fall. If you hit your head on the floor during the slip, you can sustain other injuries as well.
Athletes should also be cautious of concussions. It’s not an especially common sport injury, but you may be susceptible to it if you play a contact sport like football, soccer, or hockey.
Chiropractic Care for Concussions
When you visit us, we will speak with you about your symptoms and perform a physical exam. We will also review your medical history to determine the root cause of your pain. Afterward, we’ll create a treatment plan for your specific needs.
Our chiropractors can help alleviate your symptoms by correcting any misalignments along your spine. While you may experience relief after your first session, we may recommend additional appointments to help you heal fully. Even if misalignments are not responsible for your concussion, we can still help. If you have other injuries in addition to the concussion, our chiropractors can provide the necessary treatment to speed up the recovery process.
