Chiropractors and Concussions
Having your brain moving around in your skull after you get hit and subsequently damaged, can be scary. Concussions have different symptoms, including dizziness, headaches, and nausea. The first thing you should do is see a doctor to get a formal diagnosis, but after that, you can see a chiropractor, like the ones we have at Lefranc Chiropractic LLC in Sandy Springs, GA, to help with long-term management.
Chiropractic Treatment for Concussions
When you see a regular medical doctor for concussions, they may tell you to take painkillers or anti-inflammatories to manage some symptoms. However, our chiropractor will dig deeper and try to correct any issues with your musculoskeletal or nervous systems. The main goal is to align your spine, even a tiny shift can cause problems with cellular communication.
We'll use our own office as an example. When you visit us, we will have a diagnostic session to review any X-rays or other medical documents about the concussion. We'll also do physical and neurological tests to assess what happened to you.
After we get all the necessary information, we'll devise a plan for your concussion treatment. Our treatment is gentle and painless.
Our Treatment Process
We will either manually adjust your spine or use a specialized table. You'll lie on this table, and we'll work to correct subluxations, misalignments of your vertebrae.
Depending on your symptoms, we will aim to get certain areas of your spine back in alignment. For example, one area near the top could be the culprit of your headache. Another area could be responsible for your nausea. Getting those particular vertebrae back in position could make a big difference.
You can do other things to help you recover from a concussion. Rest is the main thing. It would be best if you also give yourself time to heal. It's essential to be patient.
While we can't heal a concussion, we are here to give you treatment for the symptoms. Are you ready to take that step? You can get help by searching "chiropractor near me" on Google.
