Acupuncture for Post-Concussion Syndrome

Post-concussion syndrome (PCS) is a mild form of traumatic brain injury (TBI). The condition is associated with headache, dizziness, nausea/vomiting, neck or shoulder tightness, sensitivity to light or noise, or irritability, anxiety, depression, insomnia, inability to concentrate or focus vision etc. Some cases may have serious symptoms similar as traumatic brain injury.

How does acupuncture work for PCS

According to acupuncture theory, the sooner treatment is started after the onset of symptoms, the stronger the effect will be in providing relief to the patient. Chinese physicians worked out that each major organ had an acupuncture meridian which is like a special energy line run all over the body including the head and brain. Wherever there is an injury, the meridian gets damaged and blocked at the injury site which then prevents good energy circulating along its pathway. Acupuncture can unblock meridians and increases energies and circulation to brain to restore health.

Some experts believe post-concussion symptoms are caused by disruption of neurotransmitter systems. Research has shown that acupuncture balance/improve cerebral neurotransmitters -- chemicals produced in the brain and nervous system that facilitate the transfer of information between nerve cells--stimulates new nerve connections to allow the brain to “re-wire” itself.

Course of treatment

There are 10-15 acupuncture sessions in one course of treatment. Treatment frequency depends on individual condition. Chinese herbs work synergistically with acupuncture.
