Concussions -- What every parent should know
The movie "Concussion" is at Redbox, and you should rent this movie now!
It is the true story about a doctor's discovery of the impact of head traumas in athletes. And if you are concerned about the injuries your child could sustain in school sports--this is a must see!
Concussions severely impact the way the brain functions and can cause a lifetime of health issues if not treated promptly and properly. A person does not have to be knocked unconscious to suffer the debilitating effects of a concussion.
Concussions can be caused by direct impact to the head, or by a blow to the hip or shoulder that causes a whiplash-like motion to the head. These impacts will affect the cognitive functions of the brain that control thinking, reasoning and concentration. And when not treated properly, a cascade of additional health events can occur.

If you or someone you know has experienced an injury or is involved in sports, it is important to get a spinal check up -- ideally before something happens, regularly while training and playing sports, and definitely after an injury. Regular spinal care optimizes the health and performance of the body, removing stress from the nervous system and allows the body to maximize its ability. After an injury, chiropractic care re-aligns the spine and clears the nervous system, allowing the body to heal. Atlas Orthogonal specialists look specifically at the Atlas, the top bone of the spine.
