Chiropractor Atlanta Helps Concussion Sufferers
When someone suffers a concussion which they may not even be aware of, he or she may get symptoms of post-concussion-syndrome that last for an extended period of time. It does not have to be an intense injury to cause this problem. There is no connection between how hard a person was hit compared to whether or not they will develop post-concussion-syndrome. Concussions related to injuries during sporting events are estimated to be up to 3.8 million in the USA. This makes post-concussion-syndrome a problem of top priority among public health authorities.
It is normal for people suffering from post-concussion-syndrome to have headaches. This makes sense since the original injury was probably a blow to the head. If headaches continue to occur after the concussion, it is possible that they have post-concussion-syndrome. How is this treated?
Medical doctors generally focus on relieving symptoms. This often includes prescription drugs to help with headaches, feeling off-balance, feeling anxious, and issues with getting regular sleep. These may help a person feel better temporarily, but the root of the problem still lies undetected. Where can a person find long-lasting relief?
Upper cervical chiropractors have been having success in treating post-concussion-syndrome patients. These chiropractors are unlike the traditional chiropractors you may be familiar with. They are specially trained to analyze and find a misalignment in the bones that are in the uppermost part of the neck. This misalignment very possibly happened when the concussion occurred.
Because this misalignment can cause many problems with the nervous system, it is vital that it is addressed by a professional. Many patients have seen a decrease in symptoms, or even a total reversal of symptoms, after only a few adjustments. Once the misalignment is corrected, healing can take place, bringing the person back to a healthier and happier existence.
