Concussion Facts

How You Get a Concussion

Concussions are classically a traumatic blow to the head, neck or face. However, there doesn’t need to be a direct blow to sustain a concussion. A concussion may result from a blow anywhere on the body where the force of the blow is transmitted to the head, even from a forceful injury such as whiplash.

Concussion Treatment with Cranial Osteopathic Manipulation

Cranial Osteopathic Manipulation Treatments work with the brain and skull improving the chance of a quick and full recovery. Concussions are caused by a blow on the head or any other parts of the body. Even whiplash or falling, sending shock into the head. As documented in osteopathic journals for over seventy-five years, when we evaluate and treat strain patterns in the head and body many health issues can be avoided or their effects reduced.

Only Osteopaths fully trained in Cranial Osteopathy can diagnose and treat the strain patterns to restore function in the body (see diagram below). These strain patterns can compromise cranial nerve function, restrict blood circulation, and cerebral spinal fluid flow, leading to cognitive and neurological defects. Neurologist can diagnose nerve and cognitive defects, but only trained Cranial Osteopaths can actually treat the strained tissues that relate to such defects. This holistic approach cannotbe made by MRI, CT, cranial sacral work, massage or physical therapy.

Patients should be treated as soon as possible after a concussion to improve the chance of a quick and full recovery. Most patients feel an improvement after the first treatment.
