Concussion Therapy Q & A

What is concussion therapy?

Concussion therapy at Aesthetic & Integrative Dentistry is a combination of cranial therapy and oral appliances. The goal is to help you heal from your concussion as effectively and quickly as possible while reducing the symptoms associated with the concussion. 

When do I need concussion therapy?

Concussion therapy may be part of your post-concussive care if you have persistent concussion symptoms. It’s quite common to experience a serious imbalance within your craniosacral system after a concussion. 

That leads to problems producing and resorbing cerebrospinal fluid and translates into problems like:

  • Headaches
  • Migraines
  • Dizziness
  • Back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Chronic fatigue

Dental concussion therapy is a noninvasive way to correct the imbalances and relieve your concussion symptoms, guiding you to gentle healing. 

Concussion therapy is often part of a multidisciplinary healing plan. Your medical doctor may recommend concussion therapy at Aesthetic & Integrative Dentistry as well as traditional concussion treatments like physical therapy or cognitive rehabilitation. 

Dr. Callicutt and Dr. Dayries work closely with your other medical care providers to implement concussion therapy at the ideal time and in an optimal way for maximum benefit. 

How does dental concussion therapy work?

Dental concussion therapy includes oral appliances and cranial therapy. 

Oral appliance 

An oral appliance fits into your mouth, directly over your teeth. Your oral appliance is custom-made using a mold and scans of your jaw and mouth, so it fits well. 

An oral appliance can work in several different ways, including protecting against teeth grinding and jaw clenching and precisely repositioning your jaw when it’s out of balance. Oral appliances can be an important part of your recovery because it’s so common for imbalances to occur with a concussion. 

Cranial therapy 

In cranial therapy, your dentist performs a series of very light-pressure movements on your cranial bones. This often feels similar to a gentle massage on your face, jaw, and neck. Cranial therapy rights the imbalances caused by your concussion and thus helps you heal faster. 

With an oral appliance and cranial therapy, your concussion symptoms can soon be in the past. Many patients find that this non-surgical and gentle approach helps them recover from concussion far sooner than they otherwise would have.
