Concussions - Head and Neck Injury/Recent head injury/ audio logical conditions/ vertigo


QUESTION: I had a recent head injury . Which was ruled out to be very minority concussive. However, I've been experience pretty bad vertigo for the past month. I have a question.
I was recently diagnosed with a unilateral vestibular weakness on one side of 44% . Seems to be getting better , but still feel ill.
Would it be possible to do the same test in a month or so to see any improvements or no?

ANSWER: Miss Rebecca,
Yes, you could do the testing again to see if there are any changes. It may be suggested at 3 months or 6 months rather than 1 month, but you can retest.
Your body heals itself and is always trying to improve function so you may have some improvement.  However, there is a reason that you are having this problem, a cause of it. If you do not get to 100 % proper function on your own, you can call on me because I am only concerned  with locating and correcting the cause without any harmful drugs or surgery.
You may be aware that I specialize in difficult cases and helping to restore proper function when the brain and body are not able to do so on their own.
I hope that you continue to heal and everything once again functions normally as it should.

All the best,

Dr Robert Arnone

QUESTION: I was diagnosed with sciolisis ( loss of curvature ) of the cervical spine. Could this be cause of my symptoms ? Currently getting chiropractic treatment for.
Also I have wisdom teeth coming out , which may or may not be contributing to this all .

Miss Rebecca,

Scoliosis is an effect, not an ultimate cause.
If you can go to a general chiropractor and have that improve then that's great.
Just make sure that you are going to a doctor that tests you before, analyzes, explains and  measures on every visit so that he knows that he knows that he knows.
At some point BEFORE initial adjustment there should also be specific xrays taken and explained to you and to prove improvement should  take updated films to compare your progress.
Best of luck to you.
Dr Arnone

PS Scoliosis is an abnormal lateral curvature of the spine rather than a loss of curvature.

I can answer questions in regards to head or neck injury mainly in regards to youth or adult athletes. In my St Louis Office I have extensive experience in helping Concussion patients and those suffering from Whiplash Injury after a Car Accident. I cannot answer any questions in regards to Medications or Surgeries unless the person is looking for an option to improve or regain their health without Drugs or Surgery.
