Concussion in Thunder Bay

man headache in from of computerA concussion is a traumatic brain injury (TBI) caused by a blow to the head, commonly occurring during sports, falls, or auto accidents. Concussions often have invisible effects that can be overlooked.

One of the most neglected issues is the involvement of potential whiplash in the neck. It’s almost impossible to suffer a concussion without impacting the cervical spine. Patients frequently report neck stiffness or discomfort alongside their concussion symptoms. Addressing the neck can significantly speed up concussion recovery by alleviating these related issues.

A Complement to Traditional Medical Treatment

At Santin Chiropractic, we work closely with medical practitioners to monitor concussion patients. We track their symptoms, progress, and reevaluate their spine and neck regularly. This collaborative approach ensures that patients receive comprehensive care, checking in more frequently to reassess their condition and adjust their treatment plans as needed.

Chiropractic Adjustments and Concussion Recovery

Chiropractic adjustments focus on the spine and the nervous system, which can aid in concussion recovery. Addressing even mild whiplash from the concussion helps patients recover from neck injuries and regulates the nervous system, positively affecting their overall recovery.

We also advise patients on limiting activities that could hinder their healing and discuss proper hydration, diet, and supplementation to support brain health during recovery.

Physical and Cognitive Recovery

While chiropractic care primarily addresses the physical aspects of recovery, such as neck pain and nervous system regulation, we also take inventory of cognitive issues like memory, focus, and concentration. By improving physical health, chiropractic care can indirectly support better cognitive function, contributing to a more holistic recovery.
