Concussion Answers from Upper Cervical

Concussion, Neck Pain, Neck Injury, Car Accident, Sports InjuryThe health profession is starting to recognize that concussions or traumatic brain injuries are not sufficiently understood. There are 2.8 million people in the United States who suffer from concussions each year which may lead to disabling post-concussion psychiatric disorders such as depression anxiety and irritability.  If you are one of these 2.8 million people may be tired of people telling you it is in your head, that it is not true because your MRI results were negative or they cannot believe several months have gone by and you continue to have symptoms.  It is now understood that conventional MRI results can be normal even when a concussion can be diagnosed with clear symptoms.1 Thankfully, now more than ever there is more emphasis being placed on training and educating coaches and players to detect signs, as well as examinations conducted at the beginning of the season to be used as comparisons if a concussion is suspected. Dr. Geoff Besso recognizes the importance of education and detection but believes there needs to be more emphasis placed on how we help those who, like you, could be suffering with any of the following post-concussion symptoms:

  • Inattention
  • Memory loss
  • Mental confusion
  • Fatigue
  • Insomnia / Sleep Disorders
  • Dizziness / Vertigo
  • Headache / Migraines
  • Anxiety / Depression
  • Speech Problems2

Dr. Besso has successfully helped people who have been suffering with post-concussion symptoms and feel like other doctors have given up on them.  What many people do not know is that the initial injury causes a disruption of neural messages at the upper cervical (neck) area and if left untreated can lead to other conditions such as multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, fibromyalgia and Alzheimer’s disease. Dr. Besso specializes in a technique which focuses on the upper neck which when corrected allows the body to function better. Whether the concussion took place a few days ago or years ago Dr. Besso recognizes what life may be like and wants you to know he can help.
