Using Chiropractic to Ease Traumatic Brain Injuries

By Chris Brown

When the head or neck experiences an impact, trauma to the brain is one of the first injuries to occur. Even a minor jolt can cause the brain to bounce against the skull and damage brain cells. Recovery from a mild traumatic brain injury can be a long and demoralizing process leading to life-impacting symptoms such as memory problems, concentration, problem solving, and emotional regulation difficulties. As the brain is the control center of the body, injuries to normal functionality generates a gigantic emotional toll upon the sufferer. Starting the healing process can be as simple as visiting your local chiropractor, as one impressive case study reveals.

Chiropractic Restores Functionality for 31-Year-Old Woman

Although every brain injury differs in severity level and presentation, a combination of chiropractic and acupuncture was a miracle treatment in the case of a 31-year-old woman with a mild traumatic brain injury. Following her fall, the patient had the lingering symptoms of dizziness, headaches, tinnitus, difficulties with concentration, and fatigue in addition to acute and persistent neck pain. The woman experimented with pharmaceutical treatments to no effect. Following eight spinal manipulation treatments of the cervical spine (along with acupuncture), the patient miraculously experienced complete resolution of her lingering symptoms. This recovery illustrates just how connected brain health is to an optimized nervous system, and how chiropractic can impact both.

How Chiropractic Helps Heal Brain Injuries

By relieving spinal subluxations, spinal manipulation helps to free up trapped nerves and optimize the nervous system's brain-body communication. This facilitates healing throughout the entire body and allows quicker information travel about one's environment to be sent to the brain. The brain is a powerful organ that is capable of healing itself, according to recent studies into neuroplasticity. By correcting spinal dysfunctions, chiropractic aids and speeds this natural healing process. Additionally, in cases where cognitive issues directly result from injuries to the spine, correcting spinal dysfunctions can result in complete symptom resolution.

If you have been impacted by a traumatic brain injury and are experiencing lingering symptoms days or weeks following an event, a convenient, walk-in visit to The Joint Chiropractic may be the missing piece required for complete recovery. Sessions are affordable, without insurance so there is no need to let finances keep you from the care you deserve. Hope for relief from cognitive impairment may only be a few chiropractic visits away.
