Chiropractor in Tallahassee, FL Discussess Sports Concussions

posted by Dr. Eric Pragle, DC, LMT

Main Stream culture is beginning to be aware of the significant affects of concussions.  Concussions are head injuries severe enough to move the brain out of its normal position for a short period of time. There are many different causes of concussions but a majority of them result from sport-related injuries.  About two million sports- related concussions occur per year, in addition to the millions of car accident-related concussions. Symptoms of a concussion can be mild or extreme, lasting days, weeks, or even longer. Chiropractors are trained to support patients in concussion recovery.

Concussion Symptoms

  • Headache or feeling of pressure in the head
  • Migraines

Because a concussion involves a brain injury caused by a hit to the head, there's a chance the hit caused misalignment of the cervical spine. Pragle Chiropractic will evaluate your concussion symptoms and provide you with relief using the AO Treatment. The AO Treatment is a successful, treatment for concussions. Former Professional Football Player/Current TV announcer, Michael Strahan made a testimonial for the AO Treatment.
