A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury—or TBI—caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head or by a hit to the body that causes the head and brain to move rapidly back and forth. Effects are usually temporary but can include headaches and problems with concentration, memory, balance, and coordination. Any blow to the head or upper body can result in a concussion including but not limited to: physical altercations or fights, playground injuries, car accidents, bicycle accidents, falling down the stairs, or other falls. It’s important to know the signs of a concussion. Many will claim to feel fine not being aware that they are dealing with a concussion.
– Loss of consciousness
– Memory problems
– Severe Headache
– Blurred vision
– Trouble walking
– Confusion and saying things that don’t make sense
– Slurred speech
– Drowsiness or feeling sluggish
– Sensitivity to light or sound.
While a blow to the head or neck may not actually cause a concussion, it very well may have created a misalignment to the vertebra in the spine resulting in a vertebral subluxation (nerve interference that can interrupt the signal from the brain that goes down the spinal cord and out to the muscles, organs, and glands.
