If you’ve been in an accident, chiropractic care may be just the thing you need to start feeling more like yourself, even when the accident involves a head injury. Every year 1.5 million Americans suffer a traumatic brain injury (TBI). Although the condition has become highly publicized due to its’ prevalence among boxers and football players, it affects everyday people too, including children.

A traumatic brain injury can happen any time a head injury occurs. That includes falling off a bike, slipping on an icy sidewalk, or being involved in a car accident. In each situation, the brain moves inside the skull, which bruises brain tissue and can cause many symptoms beyond a simple headache, including altered development and changes in social function and interaction. These symptoms affect the quality of life and, in children especially, developmental function.

There are very few treatments for TBI and concussion. In many cases, you simply have to wait for swelling to subside and for the brain to repair itself. This is where chiropractic care can help.

How Chiropractic Care Aids Brain Recovery

A healthy brain and nervous system maintains a constant communication loop between the brain and the rest of the body. This communication is made possible through the proper flow of cerebro-spinal fluid, which is regulated by joints in your spine and neck. If those joints or vertebrae are impeded in any way, spinal fluid levels can become off-kilter and affect brain function.

After an accident, chiropractic care can help restore proper spinal function, which restores nerve function and spinal fluid levels. Once the brain is able to receive nervous system messages and resume proper operation, it is able to heal itself more effectively.
