Treatment for head injuries can use osteopathic therapies like manual manipulation to address inflammation and swelling, improve blood flow, and relieve stress and other factors that can cause head pain.
Head injuries are injuries involving trauma to the skull, scalp, or brain. The term encompasses a broad variety of trauma that can include everything from scalp wounds to fractures and concussions. Some injuries can break the scalp and skill, while other involve only internal damage. As result, cranial injuries are often difficult to diagnose visually. Experts agree that any potential damage to the head should be treated seriously, to minimize the risk of long-term or permanent harm.
Cranial injuries can involve internal bleeding, concussive effects on the brain, clotting in the skull’s blood vessels, and dangerous skull fractures. Left untreated, these conditions can be potentially debilitating, and symptoms can be difficult to manage. Fortunately, osteopathic care can play a vital role in treating cranial injury symptoms, helping patients to expedite recovery, and facilitating improvement in their quality of life.
The most common activities responsible for cranial injuries like concussion include contact sports like football, basketball, and soccer, as well as accidents involving recreational vehicles. Other common causes include:
