You've just been involved in a rear end collision in your car. You were the driver of your car, stopped at a red light when suddenly-you are rear ended by a driver texting on the phone. You go through the typical examination protocols with the hospital but days later you are not feeling well. This is typical of people that have been in a car accident. Symptoms of a concussion, also called mTBI, or mild traumatic brain injury are: dizziness, confusion, headache, blurred vision, ringing in the ears, sensitivity to light and overall just not feeling right. Oftentimes a CT scan is needed to check for bleeding on the brain. Even minor impacts like whiplash from a car accident or getting struck in the head with an object like a football or soccer ball can give you these symptoms.
When more serious injury to the brain has been ruled out, treating the concussion isn't just giving you an aspirin or pain reliever. That's why you need to consult with a trauma trained chiropractor. We correlate causality with bodily injury and bodily injury with functional loss. This not only helps the patient but it gives your attorney objective data that is needed to win your case.
