   Home      Concussions and how Craniosacral helps

A few days ago I saw a posting on Facebook of a boy who had a fall and a photo of him showing a huge buah duku (bump) on his forehead.
Some parents would say being children it is inevitable that they get into mischief, scrape and fall during play or sports such as football.  Many fail to realise the seriousness of such an injury – concussion to the head.
What happens to the brain during a concussion?
BRAIN INJURY. ... An impact that causes your head and brain to shake quickly back and forth, the brain bumps into the interior of the skull, as well as on the opposite side of the skull, resulting in contusions (bruises) that damage the tissues of the brain, membranes, blood vessels and creating chemical changes in the brain.  You can suffer a concussion from a fall, hard tackle such as in sports like rugby, a body check in hockey games, shaken baby syndrome or shaken impact syndrome, and whiplash shake syndrome.
Our brain consists of soft tissue surrounded with cerebrospinal fluid and protected by the bones in our skull.  When you sustain a concussion, the impact can jolt your brain and actually causes it to move around in your head.  Traumatic brain injuries can cause bruising, damage to the blood vessels, and injury to the nerves.
Concussions may not be life-threatening, but they can cause serious symptoms that require medical treatment.  Do not mistake a concussion from a contusion.  A concussion specifically affects your brain, but contusions are bruises and can occur on your head. Contusions are not typically serious and tend to resolve within several days. 
Because all brain injuries are different in each person, so is concussion recovery. Most people with mild injuries recover fully, but it can take time. Some symptoms can last for days, weeks, or longer.
You can have a concussion without losing consciousness. Signs and symptoms of a concussion may include:

  • Headache or a feeling of "pressure" in the head
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Balance problems or dizziness
  • Double or blurry vision
  • Sensitivity to light or noise
  • Feeling sluggish, groggy or dazed
  • Difficulty paying attention
  • Memory problems
  • Confusion
  • Numbness or tingling
  • Sleeping problems
  • Mood changes
  • Changes in behavior
I have given craniosacral therapy to many people who suffered from concussion with great results.  Till today I cannot forget one miraculous transformation that occur to one of my clients.  He lost his sense of smell and taste when he got into a motorbike accident.  He was in a coma for 3 days and suffered broken bones in his leg and collar bone.  When he woke up from the coma, he lost his sense of smell and taste, a vital information he omitted to inform me then.  He was 15 at that time.  He was in his 30’s when he came to me for therapeutic sports massage for his leg pain and shoulders pain.  When I graduated and received my certification as a Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapist, I started giving him craniosacral therapy and this went on for 4-5 years.  One day he commented that he loved coming to my clinic as he could smell the essential oils I diffused in my clinic.  He saw the puzzled look on my face and went on to say that he did not mention to me when he first saw me that he had lost his sense of smell and taste after waking up from his coma.  Coming to my clinic became a wonderful experience for him as he could smell the essential oils.  He is also able to taste the food he ate, at first it was only the strong taste of salt and the sweetness of sugar and eventually all the subtle flavours.
PS:  A concussion can be easily prevented, but accidents happen.  Anyone suspected of having concussion should be assessed by a doctor.  If you do experience concussion, be sure to give it a prolonged amount of recovery time and consider craniosacral therapy.
