Get Back to A Full Recovery from Concussions
Living with a concussion can feel like navigating an obstacle course in the dark.
You’re dealing with a flood of confusing symptoms like headaches, dizziness, blurry vision, sleep issues, and emotional instability.
You’re tired, you’re foggy, and you can’t concentrate like you used to. Even scarier, these symptoms might not show up right away, taking up to 48 hours to manifest.
At Upper Cervical Spine Center, we’re here to guide you out of the fog. We understand that a concussion isn’t just a headache – it’s a serious brain injury that demands proper care, especially during the critical first 7 – 10 days after the incident. We know that it’s not just athletes who can suffer concussions, but anyone who has experienced a hit to the head or body. And we’re familiar with the ripple effects of a concussion, which can include an underlying neck injury.
In the face of a concussion, you might be told to rest. But what does ‘resting’ a brain mean? We’ll tell you: It means avoiding physical and mental activity as though you’re nursing a sprained ankle. Your brain needs an abundance of energy to heal – and returning to work, school, or physical activities too soon is like going for a run on a sprained ankle. It only delays the healing process.
Our Upper Cervical Chiropractors can be your guide through this murky recovery period, helping you stabilize and balance your neck to facilitate optimal brain-body communication. They will guide you step-by-step, from the necessary rest and time restrictions to gradually reintegrating activities like reading, schoolwork, and finally, a full return to work or school with no restrictions.
At each step, we will assess your symptoms and readiness to proceed. If any symptoms reappear, we will help you return to the previous step, ensuring you do not rush the recovery. Our holistic, patient-centered approach will address not just the symptoms, but the root causes of your concussion to facilitate a comprehensive recovery.
It’s important to remember that your brain’s recovery may not always align with how you feel. That’s why we monitor your recovery carefully, adjusting the plan as necessary and making sure you don’t take unnecessary risks that could further jeopardize your health.
