What happens during a concussion?

Concussions interrupts the brain chemistry balanceConceptually and accordingly leading researchers will tell you, the brain has the consistency of Jello. The brain is surrounded by and floats in cerebrospinal fluid, which protects the brain from daily thumps and bumps. A hit to the head and neck region caused by whiplash during a car accident, heading a soccer ball, an illegal football hit, a lacrosse cross check, a sudden fall, shaken baby syndrome, and more can cause the brain to slide back and forth too forcefully. This sudden sliding force, also called acceleration or deceleration, causes the brain to hit the skull by passing the protective fluid. The damage to the brain interrupts the brain chemistry balance causing various problems for physical, mental, and emotional concerns. The brain goes into "crisis" mode trying to protect and balance itself after a concussion, which is why immediately addressing the inner workings of the brain is essential to concussion care.

Preparing and restoring the brain is imperative for decreasing short- and long-term symptoms.  Stop suffering and protect the brain now.

  • "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."
