A recent study concluded: “When used in the acute setting, (manipulation) significantly decreased concussion symptom number and severity. This study demonstrates that manipulation is safe and effective in the management of new-onset symptoms of uncomplicated concussions."
Here are our top tips for acute concussions:
✔️When in doubt, seek immediate medical attention.
✔️If you do not need hospitalization and you are allowed to return home, you should have a responsible attendant stay with you for the first 24 hours.
✔️You should sleep with your head slightly elevated for the first 24 hours.
✔️You should drink only clear fluids for the first 8-12 hours.
✔️ Avoid alcohol, sedatives, sleeping pills, aspirin, and Ibuprofen unless your medical physician has directed otherwise.
✔️After 8-12 hours, you may begin with light meals and progress to a normal diet over the next day.
✔️You should avoid unnecessary physical and mental activity for the first 24 hours.
✔️Call our office, as new research has found that manipulation can potentially improve concussion symptoms.
