How do you treat post-concussion syndrome naturally? Why is it important to consider an underlying neck injury when treating post-concussion syndrome? How do the top two bones of the neck affect communication and fluid flow to and from the brain? What is an upper cervical chiropractor, and how do they treat post-concussion syndrome?
From Dr. Savage, we learn about how post-concussion syndrome can often result from an underlying neck injury that impedes normal communication and fluid flow to and from the brain. Concussion, Post-Concussion-Syndrome, and Whiplash injuries often have the same cause.
If you or someone you know is struggling with post-concussion syndrome, watch this video to learn more about potential solutions.
“One of the things I always like to remind people about concussions is that it requires more force to create a head injury or concussion than it does to create a neck injury.
Typically, what we see when people have post-concussion syndrome is that when things aren’t healing up properly, it’s usually the result not just of the head injury, but of an underlying neck injury as well. We find that the top two bones of your neck are the most mobile in your spine, as they are really only held together by soft tissue like ligaments, with no bony locking mechanisms like the rest of your spine.
Because they move so much, they tend to impede the normal flow of communication, as well as fluids to and from the brain. So, a lot of times, that’s where people end up with symptoms like head pressure, feeling like their head is clogged, headaches, brain fog, and other issues.
A great way to help those issues if you’re experiencing post-concussion syndrome is to see an upper cervical chiropractor. They focus very specifically on the top two bones of the spine, and in our office, we utilize a cone beam CT or 3D CT scan to know exactly what’s happening with those bones. It allows us to be really precise and get people back on track.”
If you or someone you know is experiencing post-concussion syndrome, it’s important to seek out natural and effective treatment options. Consider seeing an upper cervical chiropractor who can provide targeted care to address underlying neck injuries and support overall brain health.
Don’t wait for symptoms to show up – get checked out and take the necessary steps to protect your brain. By taking a proactive approach to your health and wellness, you can reduce the impact of post-concussion syndrome symptoms and regain control over your life.
