Concussion Care in Takanini, Auckland South

From getting hit during a rugby match, taking a spill while cycling or being involved in an automotive accident, you may experience a concussion, medically known as mild Traumatic Brain Injury (mTBI) or mild traumatic brain damage (mTBD).
A concussion is a type of brain injury caused by a blow to the head or a violent shaking of the head and body. This can lead to a range of symptoms that require careful management to ensure proper recovery.

Symptoms of Post-Concussion Syndrome (PCS)

Post-Concussion Syndrome (PCS) is a complex disorder where symptoms persist for weeks, months or even years after the initial injury. Common symptoms include:

  • Headaches: Persistent headaches that may resemble migraines or tension-type headaches.
  • Dizziness: Sensations of spinning or lightheadedness.
  • Fatigue: A general feeling of tiredness and lack of energy.
  • Irritability: Increased irritability and mood swings.
  • Anxiety and Depression: Emotional disturbances, including anxiety and depression.
  • Cognitive Issues: Difficulties with concentration, memory and thinking.
  • Sleep Disturbances: Insomnia or excessive sleep.
  • Sensitivity to Light and Noise: Heightened sensitivity to bright lights and loud sounds.
  • Blurred Vision: Vision problems, including blurred or double vision.

Identifying Underlying Causes

Often, symptoms of PCS can be traced back to the concussion itself. It’s not uncommon for accident- or injury-related misalignments to be the root cause of ongoing issues. Our goal is to correct these misalignments and support your overall recovery.

Our Comprehensive Approach to Care

Effective concussion care goes beyond symptom management. Our approach focuses on identifying and addressing the underlying causes of your symptoms. During consultations, we may suggest neurological tests to fully understand your condition. Care plans often include:

  • Spinal Decompression: To alleviate pressure on the spine and nerves.
  • Manual Manipulation: To correct misalignments caused by the injury.
  • Physiotherapy: To restore physical function and reduce pain.
