Concussion Treatment From Your Broomfield and Westminster CO Chiropractor
Here at Lifetime Health and Wellness, our Broomfield and Westminster CO chiropractor team specializes in the treatment of any number of chiropractic injuries and ailments. One of the more common treatments we provide is for instances of concussions, which affect more than 300,000 people in the United States each year. Specifically, a concussion refers to the after-effects of a major blow to the head.
Common Signs and Causes of Concussions
There are many potential causes of a concussion, but sports with physical contact is by far the most common cause. Other trauma, such as that from a car accident or workplace injury, is often seen in our office as well. However, any situation where one's head is subjected to a major blow can result in a concussion, even if the person affected is wearing a helmet.
If your head has been injured in an accident or other incident, it's important to be on the lookout for signs of a concussion so you can seek treatment as needed. Some of the more common symptoms of concussions include:
- nausea and vomiting
- dizziness or light-headedness
- changes in sleep patterns
- confusion or changes in memory
If you have been experiencing any of these symptoms, then it's time to see a doctor for an evaluation. If left untreated, concussions can result in serious long-term damage.
Chiropractic Treatment for Concussions
Chiropractic treatment isn't usually the first thing a person thinks about when they find out they have a concussion. However, it is highly recommended, as concussion treatment in the form of spinal adjustments or even acupuncture can be extremely effective. These treatments can help relieve concussion symptoms as well as improve one's overall physical health and wellness.
