A mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) or concussion is a head injury that can result from a sudden blow to the head or a forceful shaking of the head and upper body. While concussions are considered mild brain injuries, their effects can be significant and may require proper care and management for optimal recovery. Chiropractic care combined with functional neurology can offer a safe, non-invasive, and drug-free approach to addressing the physical symptoms and long-term effects of a concussion.
Concussions can manifest with a wide range of symptoms, which may include:
Nausea or vomiting
Sensitivity to light or noise
Difficulty concentrating or remembering
Emotional changes, such as irritability or anxiety
It is important to seek medical attention if you suspect a concussion or mTBI, as prompt diagnosis and treatment can help prevent further complications.
At Calibration Chiropractic + Functional Health, we know that chiropractic care and functional neurology can be an integral part of the recovery process for patients with mTBI or concussion. Our approach includes:
Comprehensive Assessment: A thorough evaluation of your spine, nervous system, musculoskeletal system, and vestibular system will be conducted to identify any misalignments or dysfunctions that may be contributing to your symptoms.
Spinal Adjustments: Gentle, controlled spinal adjustments can help restore proper alignment and function, reducing strain on your nervous system and promoting natural healing.
Soft Tissue Therapy: Techniques such as massage, trigger point therapy, and myofascial release can help alleviate tension and improve blood flow to the affected areas, facilitating recovery.
Nutritional Counseling: Proper nutrition is essential for optimal brain function and healing. Our chiropractors can provide personalized recommendations for dietary changes and supplementation to support your recovery.
Exercise Rehabilitation: Tailored exercise programs can help restore strength, balance, and coordination, reducing the risk of future injuries.
Vestibular Rehabilitation: Chiropractic care can help address vestibular dysfunction, a common issue after a concussion, through specific exercises and adjustments to improve balance and reduce dizziness.
