Looking for a Chiropractor? We found others matching your search, to help you compare.
Each patient I see comes in with their own unique problem. Many people may think all concussions are the same, but they aren't. No two concussions are the same. I need to know specifics. Specifics determine what treatment they receive. For example, how did the concussion occur? When did the concussion occur? Where on their head were they hit? Did they lose consciousness? What were they hit with? What activity (football, car accident) caused the concussion? Are they a male or female? How old are they? Did they get an MRI or CT scan after the concussion? Plus many more things that help my investigation of their problem, which all contribute to the care they receive. The more information I acquire, the greater chance for a positive result for this patient. My goal for each patient is to give them accurate information regarding their problem, and chart a course for them that will allow them to get the best result.
