Concussions on the Field, Repercussions in School

High school sports tryouts are underway. While it's exciting to make the team, how safe is your child's chosen sport? With concussion rates on the rise for student athletes, the long-term impact of brain-related injuries on academics is a serious concern.

Common practice traditionally has allowed players to quickly return to the playing field once the dizziness subsides. Researchers are now learning that actual brain changes can be seen up to a year after the initial injury, including memory and focus issues and mental sluggishness. Brain-injury specialists believe the harder students recovering from a concussion try to concentrate on mental activities like normal class work, the more severe their symptoms may become. Those who have recovered from the initial headaches and dizziness of a mild brain injury can find that the long-lasting symptoms can impact grades, college entrance scores and other test results.

To help kids keep safe from concussion, the CDC just released a new smartphone app called Heads Up that provides preventative tips for parents and coaches.

It is imperative to act quickly when there is any head trauma to minimize the recovery time and prevent long-term injury. A chiropractic neurological therapy plan can help rehabilitate the brain through cognitive exercise, complex and specific eye movements, and balance/coordination exercises, helping the patient to resume his/her normal activities.

Back to School Tips for Cellphones & Backpacks
backpack tips

It's that time of year again... the school shopping frenzy. Did you know that backpacks are a leading cause of back and shoulder pain for millions of children and that they should not exceed 10% of your child's weight? Before you head out to the mall, check out The American Chiropractic Association's (ACA)'s advice on selecting the appropriate backpack for your child.

Is a new cellphone on your shopping list? Although the Environmental Working Group no longer publishes its annual list Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) values for cellphones (see report for more info), it does offer a helpful safety list for cellphone usage. Meanwhile, in July, CNET published its report of the 20 Lowest Radiation Cellphones to help parents with the purchasing decision.

Getting to the root of insomnia with neurofeedback
BrainCore insomnia

Have you noticed the days are getting shorter? For many, the slow shift into the autumn season unsettles sleep patterns, triggering insomnia. Stress and anxiety also impact the body's ability to get a restful sleep.

While occasional bouts of sleepless nights can leave you groggy and listless, chronic sleep loss can sap your energy, siphon productivity and lead to depression, anxiety and even heart disease.

Prescription medications are often prescribed as the first line of treatment for insomnia, however they merely mask the symptoms and do not address the source of the problem. If you find you're struggling each night for a sound sleep, BrainCore neurofeedback can help regulate the abnormal brain-wave patterns that underlie your insomnia.

Hear how BrainCore therapy "brought my brain back."

Yours in health,
