A patient-oriented brochure describing the upper cervical involvement in mild traumatic brain injury and the role of upper cervical care in recovery.
“Between 2000 and 2017, there have been 379,519 mild traumatic brain injuries (mTBI’s) among military personal alone. This averages out to 21,084 mTBI’s per year. Many of these mTBI’s are from blast injuries.
Even though mTBI’s are common, they have been poorly understood, and many military members, veterans and others continue to suffer the long term effects of mTBI. In one large review of outcomes from intervientions such as pharmaceuticals, rest and information, they concluded that, “According to the published literature, no intervention initiated acutely has been clearly associated with a positive outcome for patients who sustain mTBI, and there is little evidence suggesting that follow-up interventions may be associated with a better outcome.” They recommended looking to other forms of treatment outside of standard mTBI protocols.
