15 Symptoms of Concussions in Rockford IL

Whiplash and concussions go hand in hand. It doesn't take much to experience whiplash. Trips, falls, accidents, and more can cause your head to whip around rather easily causing subluxations, inflammation and more. Often, when you experience whiplash you may also end up with a concussion. The force of your neck whipping around causes your brain to hit the inside of your skull resulting in a concussion. There are many signs of possible concussion and whiplash in Rockford IL to look for after a potential brain injury.

15 common signs to look for to identify a concussion in Rockford IL:

  • Neck Stiffness
  • Neck Pain
  • Can't remember events prior to the hit or fall
  • Appears Dazed or Stunned
  • Moves clumsily
  • Answers questions slowly
  • Loses consciousness (even briefly)
  • Shows mood, behavior, or personality changes
  • Headaches or feeling "pressure" in the head
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Balance problems or dizziness
  • Blurred or double vision
  • Bothered by light or noise
  • Feeling sluggish, hazy, foggy, or groggy
  • Just not "feeling right" or "feeling down"

If left untreated long term effects can include headaches, migraines, and more. After initial treatment of a concussion has been provided by a physician, chiropractors are a great next step to help continue to recover and heal properly without impingement of the nervous system.
