Sports Concussion Treatment

If you play contact sports, you may have already experienced a concussion at some point in your athletic career. A concussion is a traumatic brain injury that can temporarily affect your mental state and level of consciousness. There is no “cure” for a concussion. Your body just needs to rest in order to recover. However, at Glowaki Chiropractic, we can offer adjustments to alleviate symptoms of a concussion, like headaches and neck pain, and make you more comfortable during your recovery.
