The term ‘head injuries’ covers a wide range of different conditions that can affect almost anyone, but are more likely to occur after certain circumstances, such as sporting events and vehicle accidents, for instance. To make sure that you get the best treatment for your head injury, it is important to know the effect that head injuries can have on you, as well as the specific methods that Icon Medical can prescribe to help you get back on your feet.
What different types of head injuries are there?
Concussion is the most common type of head injury and can range from mild to severe in its impact. Although it is not often thought to be serious due to its usually temporary nature, concussions are classed as a brain injury usually caused by direct impact with an object, and can cause vomiting, nausea, disorientation and amnesia.
Fractures in the skull can also occur on your head’s impact with another object, although fractures are not common due to the fact that the skull is not made out of bone marrow, making it stronger than the rest of the body. However, skull fractures are dangerous as this can leave your brain vulnerable to damage.
Hemorrhages are also a type of head injury which you may previously have heard of, and is the name for uncontrollable bleeding on your brain, or even within your brain. Although this causes aches, pains and vomiting, if hemorrhages are not stopped quickly, these can result in death.
What happens if you have a head injury?
If you have any type of head injury, this can result in a variety of extremely severe symptoms. These include extreme nausea and vomiting, disorientation and confusion, memory loss, and short term loss of mental capabilities. Not only this, but head injuries can also lead to bleeding from the nose or ears, unconsciousness, fits, hearing loss or temporary blindness, a struggle with speech, and trouble with walking and motion.
However, this list simply details the possible short term effects of a head injury. In fact, head injuries can lead to a large number of other conditions and symptoms which can prove difficult to treat and can stay evident on a long term basis. For instance, you may contract post-concussion syndrome, where you have prolonged symptoms such as vomiting, dizziness, and trouble with communication and comprehension which can affect your ability to carry out your daily life. Head injuries can also cause impact to the brain which can leave you with conditions such as epilepsy, or mean that you have trouble with movement, experience hormonal changes, or lose some of your senses. You may also see changes in your moods and in your comprehension and problem-solving ability.
What head injuries can Icon Medical help with?
Although Icon Medical’s care cannot help to solve severe brain injuries such as hemorrhages or fractures, Icon Medical can help to ease the symptoms and complications of these conditions for a more advanced recovery and an increase in your body’s ability to manage pain.
Concussions: One of the top conditions which Icon Medical can help you with are concussions and its symptoms, such as headaches and nausea. Many concussions are caused by a direct impact with a blunt object that can lead to and are associated with spinal misalignment. Then, Icon Medical’s hands-on techniques such as chiropractic care can help to realign your spine and reduce the discomfort and pressure that this will have on your nervous system. Combined with other techniques such as massage and pain management, this will then reduce pain and boost your body’s natural healing processes. Our professional team can also give you key advice on the proper lifestyle changes to commit to during recovery, which includes avoiding sports and driving, as well as certain types of medication.
Post-Traumatic Concussion Syndrome: Like with concussions, post-traumatic concussion syndrome can be relieved by our team. For instance, our chiropractic services have the ability to reduce any misalignment that may be causing or aggravating these symptoms. Corrections made with precision can help to heal the nervous system and stop pain from transmitting through the body. This can also help to improve motion. Other techniques such as massage can also help to reduce the stress of traumatic incidents for the sufferer, and aid individuals in dealing with pain management.
Headaches: Our care is not only perfect for treating head injuries, but also the symptoms that coincide with them, such as headaches, which are a symptom of many of the most common head injuries. Our therapeutic massage techniques and chiropractic care can help to reduce headaches through releasing the tension and strain that resides inside the body.
Icon Medical provides a range of techniques for those in need of alternative medical care, such as pain management and massage, in order to treat the individual head injuries of a patient according to their personal preferences and needs.
