Re: [RC] head injuries: "I don't need to go to the hospital..." - Susan Young Casey

If chiro's are your thing, by all means see one...
the visit to the emergency room.  A chiro can't do
squat about
a concussion, nor can one diagnose one without the
tests.  Personally I'd rather see an osteopath, who
has a real 
medical education in addition to knowing adjustment
techniques, but that is just my preference.


A chiro has a place in health care but can't perscribe
and has limited medical training.

An osteopath is also my preference as well.  AND, a
D.O. can do OMT (osteo manulaptive therapy).  A chiro
does a scaled-down version of OMT.  

I've seen a good D.O. put things straight; the patient
received immediate results.  After a nasty fall, a
D.O. performed OMT on me and worked wonders.  I still
had a concussion, broken pelvis, and torn rotary cuff.
However, I felt better and healed quicker.

Yes, please, PLEASE see a doc after a head injury!
