Concussion Care for Grand Junction and Surrounding Areas
If you've ever watched a football game or other high-impact sport, you've probably witnessed a concussion. When you're actually the recipient of a concussion, you gain a whole new understanding of the problems this condition can create. Your bruised brain can recuperate with the help of our chiropractor at Transformation Wellness Center in Grand Junction. We can provide safe, careful therapies that let you heal as efficiently as possible.
Slip and Fall, Sports Injury, Auto Accident Injury, and Other Concussion Causes
A variety of circumstances can cause a concussion, from a slip and fall at work to an auto accident injury or sports injury. An impact to your skull or an impact to your body that sends your head bouncing around can cause the brain to bump up against the skull's inner lining. The resulting brain swelling and bruising can cause unconsciousness, extreme mental disorientation, vomiting, nausea, dizziness, blurred vision, headaches, and migraines.
Healing from a concussion can be a lengthy process, and even after your brain is well again, some of your symptoms may remain. That's because many of the symptoms associated with concussions are also caused by cervical spinal misalignment, which is a possibility in any injury that might also create a concussion. Dislodged vertebrae, pinched nerves, and herniated discs may be giving you a lasting "memento" of your injury by turning your acute injury into chronic distress.
We Can Help You Get Over Those Distressing Concussion Symptoms
Transformation Wellness Center can help you make an optimal recovery, not just from your concussion, but also from any cervical spinal injuries that are aggravating your condition. Our chiropractor can examine your spinal alignment to check for any possible causes of nerve impingement. You may benefit from cervical chiropractic adjustments that bring your neck structures back into a more normal position. If swollen, injured soft tissues are pressing against cervical nerves, we may administer massage therapy to help ease nerve compression, headaches, and migraines. If a history of concussions has made you vulnerable to mild cognitive impairment (MCI), we can also administer the Bredesen ReCODE Protocol to help you improve your cognition.
Each concussion is a unique event and needs to be treated as such. We may recommend, for example, that you pursue additional forms of rehabilitation that involve light, careful physical therapy exercises, which have been recognized as potentially helpful for concussion patients. Rely on our team for personalized guidance throughout your recuperation.
