Concussions and what to do?


Concussions are defined by the Mayo Clinic as “a traumatic brain injury that affects your brain function. Effects are usually temporary but may include headaches and problems with concentration, memory, balance and coordination.” Unfortunately, concussions can negatively affect the overall health of the entire body, including the neck, shoulders and spine. In addition to residual muscle pain or soreness as a result of a direct blow to the head, usually caused during vigorous sports activity or during a professional sports game, the body in its entirety may be thrown into a state of shock as a result of the trauma to the brain caused by a concussion. 

Effects Of A Concussion

When a concussion occurs, neural tissues can become injured affecting the body’s chemical equilibrium. Due to a cascade of chemicals, the area affected can impact vital brain functions including the brain stem, cerebral cortex, and/or the cerebellum. As a result of the physical impact on the head, the body may react on impact, creating residual pain in the neck, shoulders, upper back, lower back, and even the hips. Since the body is best viewed from an integrative mechanical standpoint, it does a patient well to view any form of negative impact as affecting the entire body in its full scope.
