Chiropractic is a valid treatment for concussion
Statistics indicate the concussions are on the rise, especially among the youth, thanks mainly to sports.

If you suspect you or your child may be suffering from concussion, don't hesitate to call our office right away. We are trained in the detection and treatment of concussions according to the Sport Concussion Assessment Tool 2 or SCAT2 method of evaluating concussion cases.
There is no other way to treat concussions but with the utmost seriousness- if you are diagnosed with a concussion, you will need to take a break from your activity until the injury is fully healed. While the body will heal itself given enough time, chiropractic can help you heal faster and see symptoms subside quicker by addressing the misalignment of the spine which frequently accompanies concussions and exacerbates their symptoms. For example, cervicogenic headaches are quite common with concussion and a misalignment in the cervical vertebrae could be responsible for this. Once your symptoms subside, it is time to ease back into activity.
