A concussion is a serious traumatic brain injury, which is caused by rapid movement of the brain tissue within the skull. This causes the brain tissue to stretch and change shape damaging the cells. The damage also causes chemical and metabolic imbalances making it difficult for cells and other motor skills to function and communicate. This is usually caused by a bump, blow or jolt to the head like accidents, contact sports, physical abuse or other trauma causing the brain to move back and forth rapidly.
Craniosacral therapy is the most effective non-invasive method in areas of pain relief, rehabilitation and neurology especially in the treatment of concussions. Craniosacral therapy helps mitigate compression in the head, neck and back, which can soothe pain and release emotional and physical tension. A trained craniosacral therapist will use their hands to detect brain fluid build up like cerebrospinal fluid and work their way to slowly release these fluids or any other blockages by decompressing it through the cranial bones and eliminate any dysfunction or abnormalities. Failure of which will cause swelling and pain to the individual. Craniosacral therapy (CST) can be used on patients of all ages to treat and cure conditions like migraines, headaches, constipation, irritable bowel syndrome, scoliosis, lower back pain and brain trauma including trauma from whiplash.
