Concussion

A concussion is a traumatic brain injury, usually caused by a blow the head, which alters the way your brain functions. Osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT) can help reduce recovery time and long-term side effects of concussions, which are often under-diagnosed and can cause serious health problems later in life.*

How can osteopathic treatment help?

  • Osteopathy can help enhance the body’s natural mechanisms to heal itself, and osteopathic physicians may prescribe medicines, or other natural supplements, if needed.*
  • OMT is a gentle manual approach that facilitates the realignment and symmetry of the cranial bones, rebalancing of the internal membranes, and optimization of cerebro-spinal fluid flow.*
  • Cranial osteopathy helps to remove any structural imbalances in the head and neck that are maintaining the injury and delaying healing of the concussion.*
