I watched a video clip showing a hard hit in pro football. I almost passed out. For an upper cervical chiropractor it was the worst thing I could have watched.
I understand concussions. I worked as a medical surgical nurse for over thirty years. Just a few years ago I worked on a neurosurgical floor.
From an upper cervical chiropractor perspective, what must happen to the head and neck junction during impact? You have a head which weighs approximately 10 to 11 pounds sitting upon the atlas bone which weighs two ounces. Certainly, the cranial cervical junction can misalign. Wouldn't this be one of the causes of residual headache and neck pain post injury?
If you have had a concussion, and have gone through a workup including x-rays and MRI's, consider seeing an atlas orthogonal chiropractor to evaluate the upper cervical area.
