In Children

What are the effects of concussions in children?

Concussion symptoms can be more difficult to recognize in childrenSigns and symptoms in children can be more difficult to recognize due to limited communication. You are your child's greatest source of protection; teach them to communicate about injuries, about safety, the rules of sports, and ways to protect themselves in case of an emergency or fall. If you suspect a child endured brain trauma, seek medical attention immediately and watch for:


· Lethargic or fatigued

· Irritability

· Vomiting

· Memory deficits

· Changes in breathing

· Dizziness

· Seizures

· Apparent mental/cognitive dysfunction

· Blood/fluid discharge from nose or ears

· Disorientation

· Appetite changes

· Vision problems, pupil dilation

· Poor balance/less coordination

· Change in personality or behavior

· Change in eating or sleeping patterns

· Lack of interest in favorite things

We can naturally restore brain function, balance the brain, and return your little athlete to the field when he or she is really ready.

Testimonials

  • "I was having headaches everyday due to concussions. My moods were unpredictable and I always felt like I was in a fog. I would have migraines at least once a week. I just didn't feel right and no one was able to tell me what was wrong. The neurologists I went to see would simply say I needed time to rest my brain after a concussion. They didn't tell me what part of my brain was affected or offer any form of treatment. I was frustrated and looking for anything to make me feel better. I went to Dr. Ruben as a last hope. Little did I know he was exactly what I needed. Dr. Ruben took his time to find out exactly what was wrong with me, bringing me not only piece of mind but also a solution. Today, I am feeling more like myself again. I haven't had a migraine in over two months and I can't remember the last time I had a headache. It was the first time in a long time that I felt like a doctor really cared. Thank you Dr. Ruben for giving me my life back!"

  • "I have been to other chiropractors, but none have provided the care or knowledge I received from Dr. St. Laurent. He was able to find the root causes to improve my brain chemistry. His understanding of neurology and adjusting techniques had me back on my feet in a few days with less visits."
