Tallahassee Chiropractor Discusses Sports-Related Concussion Symptoms and Treatment

Posted By Dr. Eric Pragle, DC, LMT

Have you suffered a whiplash injury or direct hit to the head or neck during a sport? It is easy to take a hit to the head or neck during many sports like Football, Rugby, Soccer, Baseball, Softball, Basketball etc. etc.  Many athletes suffer whiplash and mild concussions and don't even realize it.  Most athletes ignore injuries during play because they are so focused on winning or helping the team they often ignore their own health.  Unfortunately, most coaches and support staff are not trained to identify symptoms of a concussion as the symptoms are often difficult to identify.  The symptoms of a concussion can be subtle and may appear later after the head trauma, lasting days, weeks and longer.

Concussion Symptoms include

  • Head ache or feeling of pressure in the head
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Neck Pain
  • Ringing of the Ear
  • Dizziness
  • Vomiting
  • Nausea
  • Slurred Speech
  • Delayed Response to Questions
  • Brain Fog
  • Fatigue
  • Sleep Disturbances
  • Sensitivity to Light and Noise

Unfortunately, most concussions are left untreated or improperly treated and resultin suffering for a life time affecting all aspects of life.  Many people suffering from post concussion syndrome turn to addictive medications, painful injectionsand surgeries.  The thousands of professional football players who have retired are often evidence of the affects of concussions as many of them suffer greatly without proper treatment.
