Osteopathy and concussions
Although the reality of professional contact sports is far from most of us, no one is immune to the risks of concussions, whether young or old, sedentary or active. If you think you or someone close to you may have suffered a concussion, the Quebec government has put in place a protocol that should be followed.
Osteopathy can also help in cases when a concussion has been diagnosed by a physician. How can osteopathy help? It is able to activate the blood flow to the head by releasing blockages and tensions that the impact has produced (or existing pre-impact blockages). Through this blood would flows more freely, thus facilitating and accelerating the healing process. Signs and symptoms such as headaches, fog sensation, short, medium, or long-term memory loss, fatigue and concentration problems, can be improved with osteopathy. In addition, the osteopath will be able to treat the peripheral consequences of a concussion, neck problem, muscle pain, etc.If you think you have had a concussion, you should immediately stop your activity and see a doctor. Then your osteopath can help you regain a functional level as quickly as possible.If you have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to contact us.
