Concussion Management

A concussion is a traumatic brain injury that is usually caused by a blow to the head, but can also occur in whiplash type injuries.  Unfortunately, there is no gold standard for the detection of a concussive injury.  Diagnosis is based on the presence of a combination of symptoms.  Common symptoms include headaches, dizziness, light/sound sensitivity, nausea/vomiting, balance problems, fatigue/drowsiness, sleep difficulties, difficulty concentrating, “fogginess”, memory problems, and anxiety.

 

Common treatment protocols advocate rest for 7-10 days with return to normal activities once symptoms have resolved.  However, many patients symptoms return once they reintegrate back into their normal lives, which can continue on for years without proper rehabilitative measures.

 

Concussion management included assessing and managing the individual as a whole, to therefore tailor the rehabilitative strategies to the person’s needs.  Treatment of concussions include a combination of chiropractic, acupuncture, massage, stress management, and neurocognitive rehabilitation as needed
