The lingering effects of a concussion can make it difficult to make a full recovery. You need a chiropractor who can expertly treat your injuries while providing personalized care. At Lake Worth Chiropractic & Wellness in Lake Worth, we can help you recover from a concussion.
What is a Concussion?
A concussion is a medical condition that can occur when a person receives a sudden blow, bump, or jolt to the head. This type of sudden movement causes the brain to bounce around in the skull. It may even cause chemical changes. Even though they are normally not life-threatening, concussions are sometimes referred to as mild brain injuries.
What Causes a Concussion?
This condition may occur due to a sports injury, an auto accident injury, or from slipping and falling. Sometimes, accidents that seem minor at the time may result in a concussion. A person who has received a head injury should not return to normal activities until they have received a thorough medical examination.
Symptoms of a Concussion
There are several symptoms a person may experience after suffering from a concussion. Headaches and migraines can be a symptom related to a concussion. There are other symptoms a person may experience:
- Blurry Vision
- Mental Fogginess
- Mood Swings
- Sensitivity to Light
- Sleep Problems
- Anxiety or Depression
- Problems with Smell or Taste
Chiropractors Treat Concussions
There are several treatment options that a chiropractor can use to treat a concussion. Instead of prescribing medication to treat the pain, a chiropractor will treat the root cause of the pain, working directly on the musculoskeletal system. Dr. Cacic will make adjustments to the head, neck, or spine to treat the concussion.
