PITTSBURGH, Jan. 5, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- With the theatrical release of "Concussion," a movie shedding light on unethical physical demands of professional football athletes battling concussion symptoms, specialized health organizations like the Simkovich Cranial Institute are reaching out about their treatment practices.
The Simkovich Cranial Institute specializes in revolutionary treatments for symptoms associated with concussions, autism, and learning disabilities. Dr. Charles A. Simkovich, head of the institute, says athletes are among his most common patients.
These patients complete the concussion treatment protocol prescribed to them by various doctors, yet their symptoms remain and worsen with time. Simply resting or attending minimal physical therapy appointments doesn't correct the damage caused during physical trauma. These patients have not been taught about the physiology of the cranial bones and the role cranial bone movement has on brain health. They have never been informed about cranial movement therapy solutions.
Cranial movement therapy is the treatment used by Simkovich Cranial Institute to maneuver cranial bones back to their original positions after a head injury. This correction restores their natural rhythm within the skull, which then reinstates the normal cerebrospinal fluid flow and circulation.
After a head injury, the cranial bone movement is altered, slowing the cerebrospinal fluid movement- making it impossible to efficiently remove the waste products that are produced within the brain. When this occurs, the brain tissue starts to die. Concussion victims that don't receive cranial movement therapy are susceptible to "second concussion syndrome." In other words, their symptoms will continue to worsen.
Simkovich Cranial Institute hopes to spread awareness about this treatment for all concussion victims. Although the movie doesn't touch on therapy options, it does start the conversation that concussions are a very real, very dangerous injury especially if left untreated.
