An interesting case here. Although the results are very interesting and have real world usefulness, more study needs to be done before we can start praising the effectiveness of Chiropractic care in the treatment of concussions with any degree of certainty.
Concussion Symptoms Improve with Chiropractic Care.
A recent case study involved a 14-year-old male hockey player who suffered from post-concussion symptoms for 13 days. Prior to presenting for chiropractic care, he had failed to respond to traditional medical treatment and was unable to return to play or pass concussion tests. His symptoms included occipital headache, upset stomach, blurry vision, nausea, dizziness, balance problems, a “foggy feeling,” difficulty with concentration, difficulty with memory, fatigue, confusion, drowsiness, and irritability.
After five sessions of chiropractic treatment that included spinal manipulation, soft tissue work, and exercises, he was able to pass his concussion tests and return to play. The case demonstrates the benefit of chiropractic care in the management of post-concussion syndrome.
