Traumatic brain injuries cause a variety of symptoms and are extremely difficult to resolve. In many cases, doctors are forced to take a wait and see approach, seeing if the brain can heal itself.
Symptoms of a mild traumatic brain injury include – transient confusion or disorientation, loss of memory of the injury, brief loss of consciousness, seizures, irritability, headaches, nausea, etc. Most patients report that symptoms go away within seven to ten days, but this is based off of self reporting, and it is not uncommon for a concussion victim to believe they are perfectly fine whilst being, for example, unable to remember a planned trip or tell what day of the week it is.
Traumatic brain injuries are most often seen in athletes and military veterans, but can also happen after a slip and fall injury or a car accident. So, can Nashville chiropractic care help? Batson Chiropractic Group says – absolutely. Chiropractors often find that auto accident victims they are seeing for whiplash also have mild concussion.
Batson Chiropractic Group can help patients recover in two ways. First of all, a head injury often results in subtle misalignments of the neck and skull. These misalignments can interfere with nervous system flow and thus slow healing. They can also be a cause of headaches on their own. The second is that they offer BrainCore, a neurofeedback system designed to help restore brainwaves to their normal patterns.
BrainCore works by connecting the patient to a computer by using non-invasive electrodes (a cap worn over the head) and having them play games or watch animations that are “corrected” by the correct brainwave patterns. This helps the brain reprogram itself after an injury.
Patients who have suffered a concussion should call Batson Chiropractic Group for an initial consultation and to find out how they can benefit from chiropractic care and/or BrainCore.
