Concussions increase the risk of Parkinson’s

In a study last year researchers compared 162,935 men and women from the Veterans Health Administration database who had been diagnosed with a traumatic brain injury (TBI) at some point in their medical history with the same number of people who had never suffered a TBI. 

What they found was after controlling for age, race, income, medical and psychological diseases, those who had suffered mild TBI’s had a 56% increased risk of developing Parkinson’s disease and those who had suffered a major TBI had an 83% increased risk of developing Parkinson’s. 

Typically, concussions are only managed which can be a slow and frustrating,  however with Microcurrent Point Stimulation Therapy, concussions can be proactively treated by dramatically reducing elevated cortisol levels (the stress hormone which negatively affects brain health) and increasing blood circulation in the brain which speeds up healing. 

Another great aid for those suffering from concussion’s is cranial osteopathy. Using these gentle manual techniques can speed up healing by relieving intracranial pressure, increasing constricted blood circulation to the brain, and improving the flow of cerebral spinal fluid.
