Got concussion? Upper cervical chiropractic and concussion injuries

It’s an all too common tragedy: a young athlete’s career cut short because of repeated head injuries.

NUCCA News Concusson StoryIt’s a tragedy that 19 year old Conner DeChant has avoided for now, with help of precise upper cervical chiropractic care.

“I play football for Benedictine University,” Conner told the NUCCA News. “The last month of this season I took several big hits, and I started getting headaches which did not get any better. I took the concussion test, and was surprised when I got the results: I had a pretty severe concussion.”

Conner’s concussion symptoms went beyond just headaches. “My school work was suffering. It was difficult to say certain words. My head felt foggy. I would get confused at times. And I had sensitivity to light.”

This wasn’t Conner’s first experience with these symptoms. “I received three concussions during my senior year of high school, so we were worried about not playing football anymore.”

Conner’s mother is a C.H.E.K. certified exercise coach, and learned from a colleague that NUCCA upper cervical care could help with concussions. “We were looking to see if I could get some relief,” said Conner, and “it ended up being just what I needed.”

Conner and his mother consulted with Dr. Marshall Dickholtz, Jr. in nearby Northbrook, Illinois. “I was surprised at how much he knew,” said Conner of Dr. Dickholtz. “And how little the adjustment seemed.” The results of NUCCA care on Conner’s concussion symptoms were unmistakable. “Within two days all my concussion symptoms were completely gone. I was able to think a lot more clearly.”

Conner also learned that other aspects of his health could improve with his new upper cervical alignment. “I’ve had chronic back problems, and that is going away. My form for weight lifting is now better because I’m more flexible. I’m just better all around.” What does Conner have to say about his experience with NUCCA as an athlete?

“I’m getting stronger now because everything is falling into alignment. NUCCA chiropractors really fix the problem. I’ve seen a chiropractor my whole life and I’ve never gotten the results I’ve seen with Dr. Dickholtz and NUCCA care. This is going to keep me in the sport. Now, I can keep pursuing my love of football.”

What’s the differernce between chiropractic and physical therapy?

“So the long and the short of it is that chiropractors have a more expansive diagnostic education, while physical therapists have an intervention- or therapeutic-based education. While chiropractors can provide services such as rehabilitative exercise and modality treatments, their main form of treatment remains the manipulation. Physical therapists may provide manual therapy-like techniques to their… Continue Reading
