This video is a great testimonial to the benefits of chiropractic. An upper cervical chiropractor visited Taylor in the hospital when her doctors had told the family nothing else could be done. He was the doctor of Taylor's Aunt. By adjusting the top bones of the spine in the neck and removing interference to the nervous system, the body was able to heal and in Taylor's case, it allowed the body to make a dramatic recovery.
In the U.S. there are thousands of head injuries caused by sports injuries, auto accidents, slips and falls. A concussion is a form of traumatic brain injury caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head, neck or face that shakes the brain inside the skull. The brain is surrounded and protected by fluid that keeps it from hitting the skull, but if the blow is hard enough, the brain can crash into the skull and suffer injury. According to Medical News Today, once a person has experienced a traumatic brain injury, they are more likely to experience subsequent brain injury. Researchers from Toronto University reported in the June 2013 issue of Pedatrics that children take longer to recover from second or third concussions as compared with their first.
In addition to auto accidents, research is showing the number of documented cases of concussions, traumatic brain injury for children is increasing and is a major concern for sports players. A concussion can cause problems with concentration, memory, problem solving ability and behavior.
After a head injury, there might be frequent headaches, dizziness, balance issues or sensitivity to light. Research done at the University of Montreal found evidence that athletes who sustained a concussion during their earlier sporting life showed a decline in their mental and physical functions more than 30 years later.
