Concussions

Concussion
A concussion is a traumatic brain injury that alters the way your brain functions. Imagine driving along and something suddenly is right in front of you. Your body immediately spams into the object, what does your brain do? Your brain slams up against the cranium wall causing a concussion. No one ever thinks about the brain, and the affect a fall or an accident has on it. Most often when you have a concussion there is very little evidence of an issue. Initial effects are usually temporary but can include headaches and problems with concentration, memory, balance and coordination.

Symptoms
• Headache or a feeling of pressure in the head
• Temporary loss of consciousness
• Confusion or feeling as if in a fog
• Amnesia surrounding the traumatic event
• Dizziness or “seeing starts”
• Ringing in the ears
• Nausea and/or vomiting
Causes
• Your brain has the consistency of gelatin. A violent blow to your head and neck or upper body can cause your brain to slide back and forth forcefully against the inner walls of your skull.
• These injuries affect brain function, resulting in signs and symptoms of concussion.

Risk Factors
• Participating in a high-risk sport, such as football and hockey
• Being involved in a motor vehicle collision
• Having a previous concussion

How We Can Help
• Rest
• Limiting activities that require thinking and mental concentration
• Chiropractic Care – by checking the spine for subluxation, which we knows causes nerve disturbance, this can help relieve the nervous system and allow for proper healing.

    Caitlin’s Testimonial
  • I haven’t had a migraine or headache since the beginning of August! The Dr and the team at HealthMax Chiropractic of Hudson are absolutely wonderful and I recommend them to all of my friends. I don’t believe I would have gotten better if I had not come here.

  • Finding the right Chiropractor can sometimes be hard to find. I have seen numerous Chiropractors over the last 17 years but most were just back-crackers at best. After coming to HealthMax the first time, I knew I had found the right place. I highly recommend them to anyone.
