Concussions are complex and often misunderstood injuries, with a myriad of symptoms ranging from headaches to cognitive disturbances.
In the midst of the traditional routes to concussion care, an unconventional but promising approach is emerging: upper cervical chiropractic care. Strive Spinal Health’s Dr. Derek Tucker, a native of Albemarle, NC, is keen to shed light on this innovative path to wellness.
A concussion occurs when the brain experiences trauma, often due to a blow or jolt to the head. This can lead to temporary disruptions in brain function, causing both physical and cognitive symptoms.
Proper care and treatment are crucial for optimal recovery.
Where Upper Cervical Chiropractic Comes In
The top vertebrae of our spine, particularly the atlas and axis, play a pivotal role in our body’s overall function, influencing everything from posture to neural communication.
If there’s a misalignment in this region, especially after trauma, it can compound concussion symptoms.
How Can Chiropractic Adjustments Aid Recovery?
With a focus on the upper cervical spine, chiropractic adjustments aim to correct any misalignments, promoting better blood flow and neural communication.
This can potentially lead to reduced symptoms and a faster recovery. Dr. Tucker integrates the latest research and techniques to ensure that each patient’s care is tailored and effective.
