Chiropractic Treatment For Concussions In Portland

What Is a Concussion?

Concussions are a traumatic brain injury that is caused when a bump or blow to the head causes the brain to rapidly move back and forth in the skull, resulting in damage to the brain. 

Concussions are typically common in auto injuries or sports-related injuries. It is important to see a doctor right away for immediate assessment and treatment of your concussion, but pain and symptoms can linger for weeks. Chiropractic care can help alleviate these symptoms and pain.

Concussion Symptoms

Concussions can be anywhere from mild to severe. Symptoms of concussions include:

  • Bruising around the eyes
  • Feeling disorientated
  • Memory loss
  • Sleepiness

 If you experience the symptoms below, contact your doctor to discuss diagnosis and treatment, as these can be symptoms of a serious head injury:

Unfortunately, concussions won’t go away overnight. The effects of a concussion can last anywhere from one week to several months. For this reason, the number of visits you will need to fully recover from your concussion will depend on the severity of your concussion, how well you respond to treatment, and how quickly your body can begin to heal.
