What do an auto accident injury, a sports injury, and a slip and fall injury all have in common? All three kinds of incidents can cause a concussion. The resulting feelings of sickness, pain, and confusion from a concussion can be difficult to bear, and the sooner these symptoms are gone, the better. Here at Kilian Chiropractic, we can prescribe safe, non-invasive treatments to help your brain get well without imposing additional risks or stresses on it.
An Alarming Cause of Disorientation, Headaches, and Migraines
Many of us think of sacked quarterbacks landing on their heads or some similar kind of high-impact sports injury when we think of concussions. In a more sedentary work environment, a slippery floor is all that's needed to produce an injury to the skull. Contrary to what you might have thought, however, you don't have to receive a direct blow to the head to suffer a concussion. If your head or neck is jarred at high speed, the brain can actually injure itself by bouncing against the interior of the skull. In an auto accident injury, swift jarring motions can produce a concussion at the same time they also cause whiplash. No matter how you managed to obtain your concussion, you can expect to suffer from symptoms such as disorientation, nausea, vision problems, tinnitus, headaches, and migraines. Recovery from a concussion can take months.
Gentle Healing Therapies from Our Downtown Vancouver Chiropractor
Our Vancouver chiropractor at Kilian Chiropractic provides a number of services to help enhance and possibly shorten your concussion recovery period. One of the first things we will do is determine whether you sustained a cervical spinal injury alongside your concussion. This is a critical point because both kinds of injuries can produce similar symptoms, which means that they'll both require healing before you feel like yourself again. Cervical spinal adjustments can reposition structures that have lost their alignment, improving nerve signaling to and from the brain.
