When someone has been involved in a car accident, or suffered a sports injury or slipped and fell, they are at risk of having a mild-traumatic brain injury (mTBI), or even a more severe traumatic brain injury (TBI). One of the most common symptoms of a concussion is headaches, and the more severe the TBI, the higher the chance of more frequent or worse headaches.

Not only does the TBI cause headaches, but studies have shown that those suffering from headaches following a TBI also perform significantly worse on cognitive assessments, such as color naming, letter sequencing, matrix reasoning, and letter switching. In addition, studies show that headaches associated with TBI impact sleep, mood, sensory, and cognitive domains, and patients test worse on neurocognitive examinations. Often, injuries that cause TBI also cause injuries to the cervical region, such as whiplash. Chiropractic care has been proven to be successful in treating not just the cervical injuries, but also in treating the headache symptoms from concussions.

Premier Pain Management provides a multi-modal treatment approach for concussions, a combination of manual therapies, exercise training, diet and nutritional counseling, physical therapy modality applications, and more. There has also been verified results for using anti-inflammatory nutritional supplementation and limiting intake of white sugar and processed meats, as well as proper nutrition and supplements to boost brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) levels to repair damaged neurons and reduce the risk of neurodegeneration. More information on this can be found in Nutritional Program to Treat Concussions.
