The repercussions of concussions.

A recent study found that people who have had a head knock in the past lose stability when asked to perform certain mental tasks.

What does it mean?

If you have had a blow to your head, you have an increased chance of damaging your spine! One of the reasons why your back gets sore at work may be because when you are activating your brain at work, your postural/spinal stability get markedly worse because of a knock to the head from years ago!

Take home message;

Even if you feel fine now the car accident/head trauma may be affecting you in ways you weren’t aware of. Come in and get checked out and start to heal your nervous system.

Simplest tasks have greatest dual task interference with balance in brain injured adults.
