What is a Concussion?

What is a Consussion | CōLAB Health & Body | Chiropractic Service | Downtown Calgary, AB

A concussion is a mild but traumatic brain injury that is caused by force such as a direct blow to the head, face, or neck or from a blow to a different part of the body with a force that is strong enough to be transmitted to the head. A concussion stretches or bruises the blood vessels and nerves, and causes chemical changes in the brain that result in a temporary loss of normal brain function. Concussions are usually not life threatening, though their effects can be quite serious and can last for days, weeks or even longer.

Treatment for a concussion is different for each person, and depends on the specific circumstances presented. It may require a team of healthcare professionals who all work together to provide integrated care. Most concussions will resolve on their own within 7-10 days. If symptoms of a concussion persist however, it is important to receive care from trained and experienced professionals. At CōLAB Health and Body, we are here to help you manage your concussion symptoms to help you return to your regular life and daily activities. We will provide you with a unique and customized treatment plan based on your particular situation and symptoms. After a thorough physical and cognitive assessment, we might recommend manual therapy to ensure that your joints are moving well, physiotherapy to help with strengthening the muscles of your neck, massage therapy to ensure that your muscles are loose, a chiropractic adjustment that may help with concussion symptoms, or a myriad of other treatment options.
