Concussions aren’t just CRACKED eggs!

A concussion is much more serious than just cracking an egg on your head. Smashing cascarones on your head goes hand in hand with Fiesta celebrations. But not all impacts to the head are without serious consequences. Concussions are no laughing matter. They can rob people of their ability to work, play and enjoy life. The CDC estimates that somewhere between 1.6-3.8 million concussions occur every year in the U.S. About 10-15% of these go on to develop chronic problems as a result of the concussion. Research is now showing an increased risk of teenage suicide and developing MS later in life for those suffering from post-concusssion syndrome.
When the head receives a substantial impact, so does the upper neck. Yet, examinations for concussions frequently focus solely on the head. Failure to properly identify and treat an upper cervical issue may increase the risk of developing post-concussion syndrome. The impact to one's quality of life can be devastating. If you or someone you know is still suffering it's important that they get a thorough upper cervical examination and treatment if indicated. We're here to help these people get their lives back.
