Concussion

Concussion

The most common and least serious type of traumatic brain injury is called a concussion. The word comes from the Latin concutere, which means "to shake violently."

According to the CDC, between 2001 and 2009, an estimated 173,285 people under age 19 were treated in hospital emergency rooms for concussions related to sports and recreation activities. Other causes include car and bicycle accidents, work-related injuries, falls, and fighting.

How We Are Different

Reduce Dural Tension

The brain and spinal cord cannot have any pressure on it. There is a connective tissue that protects them both, the duramater or dura, is the outermost of the three layers of the meninges surrounding the brain and spinal cord. The dura surrounds the brain and the spinal cord and is responsible for keeping in the cerebrospinal fluid. The name "dura mater" is derived from the Latin "hard mother" or "tough mother".[2] The dura attaches to the periosteum, the connective tissues of the bone, of the boney protuberances inside the scull and on every level of the spine.

.


The brain and spinal cord cannot have any pressure on it. So if there is a subluxation in the spine or the skull and the dural tension is not addressed the subluxation can return again and again in order to keep that pressure off the brain and the spinal cord.

At Beyond Chiropractic we evaluate the structure of the skull and access the rest of the body so your concussion can heal in a quickly.
