Sports related concussions
Sports concussions are common and can happen to anyone, at any age.
Seeking care immediately after a head injury is highly recommended, especially if you’re experiencing post concussion symptoms such as nausea, blurred vision or dizziness. Even if one does not lose consciousness in the case of a concussion, setting up an evaluation with a Functional Neurology trained Chiropractor is important.
Kids who play sports are at risk for concussions, too.
Middle school and high school are critical times where kids are susceptible to experiencing a concussion from sports. If your loved one is having any concussion symptoms, or has told you about a hit to the head at practice, seeking professional care is important. If you live in the Bay Area, Dr. Medina will do a thorough test on your child or loved one, and provide a plan that promotes recovery.

Concussions increase your risk for brain degeneration!!
If previous concussions were not controlled, or multiple concussions were experienced within a month, the chronic inflammation of the brain can cause faster deterioration. This increases a person’s risk of degenerative brain diseases like Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s Disease. A proper nutritional program can help minimize the inflammatory cascade that follows a concussion ensuring the most efficient recovery.
