Concussion is being talked about more openly lately and it affects not only athletes but the many who have had head injury from seemingly simple “bumps” on the head. At the Cranial Therapy Centre, concussion therapy is performed almost as frequently as we treat some common aches and pains and we wanted to increase awareness in the positive effects Cranial Sacral Therapy has on concussion and how, in particular, it helps reduce and eliminate concussion symptoms.
Take a look at this great article that was published in MassageMagazine in March 2018. “Craniosacral Therapy’s ability to address concussion”
While the article talks about going to the United States for treatment, there is no need to travel to the U.S to experience the amazing results of Craniosacral Therapy (CST) for concussion. As the largest Craniosacral Clinic in Canada, our post concussion clients, which include children to adults, obtain great relief of their symptoms, while others seek us out when other forms of therapy have been unsuccessful. The fogginess,headaches, lack of concentration, light sensitivity, just a few of the symptoms of post concussion, are greatly alleviated through the gentle touch of Craniosacral Therapy.
Why does Craniosacral Therapy provide post concussion relief? The specialty of CST for concussion is that we can access and treat the membranes or meninges which surround the brain and spinal cord. No other therapy can provide this specialized treatment yielding such improvement in symptoms.
With a head trauma, or concussion, the cranial membranes respond to the trauma by losing their elasticity and become fibrous, like scar tissue, in the area of the trauma, putting abnormal pressure on the brain. This pressure results in the headaches,fogginess, lack of concentration and other symptoms that affect folks dealing with concussion.
With gentle, skilled hands, CST relieves the pressure on the brain by releasing the tension in the cranial membranes therefore relieving the symptoms. This release of tension restores optimum blood flow and cerebral spinal fluid movement while releasing any restrictions in the membranes or cranial bone sutures facilitating the brain to heal.
Recovery from concussion is greatly accelerated through CST.
In our 33 years of treating concussion and traumatic brain injuries, we continue to witness tremendous relief of pain and symptoms in our clients. CST is a therapy that benefits more than concussion, it is an effective therapy for the whole-body relieving restrictions throughout. Call us to book an appointment or find out more information.
