Traumatic Brain Injury Treatment at Health First Chiropractic Marysville

Few scenarios are as frightening and potentially devastating as a traumatic brain injury. The brain is the master control center for every function, from higher cognition to motor commands, so any auto collision, sports injury, or other event that threatens its health is a major cause for concern. But even after any immediate dangers have been alleviated in the emergency room, you may still not be in the best position to recuperate normally. That's why you should look into the traumatic brain injury and upper cervical treatment options here at Health First Chiropractic Marysville.

The Relationship Between Head Trauma and Neck Trauma

The body does the best it can to protect the fragile brain from everyday bumps and jolts. The brain is surrounded by membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that help cushion it against shock, while the skull is made of solid bone (without marrow) to lend it extra hardness. But you need not fracture your skull to injure your brain, even with all this natural protection. A sharp enough motion that throws your head forward, backward, or side to side (as in the whiplash produced by an auto collision) can cause the brain to strike the inside of the skull. This produces a kind of brain bruising known as concussion. Symptoms of concussion may include headaches, nausea/vomiting, "brain fog," memory lapses, slurred speech, delayed responses, or brief loss of consciousness.

Any possible brain injury calls for emergency medical attention, if only to rule out bleeding and swelling that might be life-threatening. But even after your release from the hospital, you may need more care than an ordinary doctor can provide. Many of the same sports, auto or workplace injuries that cause brain injuries also cause upper cervical injuries. If the upper cervical spine is knocked out of alignment, you may keep experiencing a variety of unpleasant neurological symptoms. Worse yet, impaired nerve signaling from a cervical injury may delay your overall recovery.

How Our Chiropractor Can Help You Heal

As soon as the immediate dangers of your traumatic brain injury have been addressed, make an appointment at Health First Chiropractic Marysville. Our chiropractor, Dr. Clarke, has special expertise in upper cervical care, especially an advanced chiropractic method known as the Blair Upper Cervical Technique. This technique focuses on the two topmost vertebrae in the cervical spine -- the ones most likely to cause serious neurological issues following a head/neck injury. By checking this region and making precise adjustments as needed, we can help you rid yourself of any lingering effects of your injury as quickly and efficiently as possible.
