Concussions


Football season is upon us, and a topic of interest as of late is concussions. These injuries occur in all age groups; from high school athletes to professional NFL players. Continued head trauma has been shown to be detrimental for brain and spinal health. Football demands consistent head to head contact, and with this excessive contact brain and neck injuries can occur. In addition to concussions, head to head trauma can cause: headaches, cervical sprains and strains, and disc herniation.

Treatment for these injuries is possible. Cervical chiropractic adjustments have been shown to be helpful for all of these injuries. Additionally, myofascial therapy in conjunction with chiropractic care has been shown to be a superior treatment plan for head and neck injuries.

While it is possible to recover from these injuries, prevention is the best way to combat them. The best way to prevent these injuries is to use sufficient head protection and taking adequate precautions to head trauma. It is important to replace a helmet every 2 to 3 years to maintain sufficient protection.

Football isn’t the only sport that utilizes a helmet. With the winter season upon us, the winter sports come with it.  The use of helmets by those who ski and snowboard is a must. Whether you are a casual skier or an aggressive snowboarder who visits the terrain parks, head injuries can occur. A slip and fall on ice can be detrimental for winter athletes. Use of helmets can help prevent these injuries and keep your head warm.
