Concussion and Post Concussion Syndrome
Cranial Sacral therapy is a gentle, hands-on treatment that can be effective in relieving the symptoms of concussion and post concussion syndrome. The therapy focuses on the cranial sacral system, which consists of the bones, membranes, and cerebrospinal fluid that protect and support the brain and spinal cord. By working with this system, Cranial Sacral therapists can help to alleviate discomfort and improve function in the body.
One of the ways that Cranial Sacral therapy may help with concussion and post concussion syndrome is by reducing the symptoms of headaches and neck and back pain. The therapy can help to relax the muscles and improve circulation, which can in turn help to alleviate pain and discomfort. In addition, Cranial Sacral therapy may help to reduce anxiety and stress, which are common symptoms of concussion and post concussion syndrome.
Another way that Cranial Sacral therapy may be beneficial for individuals with concussion and post concussion syndrome is by addressing issues related to the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). The therapy can help to improve the function of the TMJ, which can reduce the symptoms of TMJ disorder, such as pain and difficulty with jaw movement.
Overall, Cranial Sacral therapy can be a helpful complement to traditional medical treatments for concussion and post concussion syndrome. It is a gentle and non-invasive therapy that can provide relief from a range of symptoms and improve overall function and well-being.
