If chiro's are your thing, by all means see one... AFTER
the visit to the emergency room.  A chiro can't do squat about
a concussion, nor can one diagnose one without the appropriate
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.

As a RN with 25 years experience I couldn't agree more. There is a time and place for most treatment, but head for the ER first and get a diagnosis.
