Concussions and Post-Concussion Syndrome

We specialize in evaluating and treating the residual effects of concussions, otherwise known as post-concussion syndrome (PCS).

Common signs and symptoms of post-concussion syndrome may include:

  • Headaches
  • Migraines
  • Dizziness
  • Neck Pain
  • Difficulty Concentrating
  • Memory Problems
  • Mood Changes

While most people will fully recover from a concussion, 1 in 3 people will experience residual symptoms one year after the injury.

The primary cause of PCS is due to cervical spine instability. A concussion injury acts much like a whiplash injury and can damage the supporting ligaments of the neck. When these specialized ligaments become damaged, instability occurs as a result.

The neck is meant to be stable, as it houses critical structures, such as the brain, brainstem, spinal cord, cranial nerves, and spinal nerves. When the neck becomes unstable, it can irritate these structures, causing the symptoms of PCS.

In our office, we specialize in treating the effects of post-concussion syndrome by accurately diagnosing the site, severity, and location of cervical spine instability, which is the most probable cause of PCS.

We also evaluate concussions and can, in most cases, diagnose and even prevent PCS from occurring.

As aforementioned, concussions can cause PCS a third of the time. That’s why it is crucial to get evaluated as soon as possible if you have sustained a concussion, so we can ensure you are on a full path to recovery.

If you or a loved one have sustained a recent concussion, or believe you are experiencing post-concussion syndrome, do not hesitate to reach out to your Woodstock, GA chiropractor.
