Does concussion stop the brain cleansing?: Gill Redden Cranio


A clean brain that is well fed and nourished is a healthy brain that fights off dementia and other cognitive disorders.

 

 

Concussions occur as the result of a traumatic blow to the head. This causes the brain and supporting membranes to bounce, twist and get damaged inside the skull.

Developments in the longer-term effects of concussion have featured in the news recently, as new brain research illustrates just how long-term and wide-ranging effects can be. After one of the largest ever investigations into the link between traumatic brain injury (TBI) and cognitive decline in later life, Danish and US researchers concluded that the younger a person was when sustaining a head injury, the higher the risk of developing a form of dementia.

The study looked at the health records of 2.8 million people over 36 years and found that individuals who sustained a TBI in their 20s were 63 percent more likely to develop dementia in the next three decades than someone who did not sustain one.

Gill Redden, of Gill Redden Cranio, specialises in actually treating concussion symptoms rather than monitoring and forming plans, effectively treating patients sometimes months or years after the initial injury. “It is better, however, if people seek treatment immediately after their head or tailbone trauma, certainly not waiting 6 weeks to see if they ‘come right.’” says Gill, “Some of their cranial bones will definitely be jammed up!”

Using CranioSacral therapy, Gill provides a post-concussion treatment programme that helps nurture the bones, membranes, organs, tissue, nerves and blood vessels back to free movement, helping enable people to be pain and dysfunction-free. Spinal fluid can’t move freely if bones and membranes are jammed up. This fluid feeds and also detoxifies the brain. It is critical that the spinal fluid is flowing and CranioSacral therapy supports to ensure it is.

Gill also works directly with the brain scars that form when a trauma occurs. Some troublesome symptoms are not actually concussion, and can be relatively simple to treat through freeing jammed or twisted bones and membranes which in turn enables the brain to heal more easily.

Gill’s comprehensive concussion-focused website allows people to gain a better understanding of concussion and its consequences, provides a concise description of what CranioSacral therapy is and is validated by testimonials of clients sharing their experiences of recovery and a pain and drug-free life. www.gillreddencranio.co.nz/

 

 


 

Concussion Recovery Successes: Gill Redden Cranio


Gill Redden constantly sees the consequence of concussions or bad head knocks that were never identified at the time of the initial accident. That’s because an impact anywhere always sets up a chain of events, which the body tries to accommodate for as long as it can.

 

 

Gill uses full body Cranio techniques, which are internationally accepted, combined with nearly two decades as a professional CranioSacral practitioner. She is able to help loosen up head bones, the membranes surrounding the brain which then form the spinal canal, tailbones, organs and nerves. By treating the whole body, it assists the nervous system to stay healthy or to repair in a non-invasive manner. This can potentially help with a reduction in pain or problems even 24 years after an accident or concussion (see a video on the website of Janice who had migraines for 24 years after a bad car accident).

Gill treats people with a wide range of symptoms including migraines, headaches, dizziness, tinnitus, nausea, double-vision, fatigue, poor sleeping, vomiting, neck pain, nerve problems, poor concentration, aggression, depression and anxiety. Her comprehensive website lists positive testimonials, ranging from rugby players who suffered head knocks to others suffering ongoing issues, who have all found relief after attending the Bealey Avenue clinic.

“Any head knock can mean that head bones, membranes, organs, blood vessels or nerves may no longer be moving well, potentially leading to anxiety, depression, brain fog, poor decision-making, dizziness or other problems – sometimes immediately, but other times years later,” explains Gill.

This can potentially help with a reduction in pain or problems even decades after an accident or concussion (see written testimonials on the website from Charles and Brandon who had burning nerve pain for 2.5 and 20 years after concussions).

Gill treats people with a wide range of symptoms including migraines, headaches, dizziness, neck and nerve pain, double-vision, fatigue, poor concentration, brain fog, depression, poor sleeping and much more. Her comprehensive website lists positive testimonials, ranging from top rugby players who suffered concussion, to others suffering ongoing issues, who’ve all found relief after attending the Bealey Avenue clinic.

It should be noted that the sphenoid bone has a lot to do with anxiety and depression. What happens to our active, outdoor-loving people who have sustained a few head knocks over the years? All our history adds up. Gill suggests regular Cranio so we don’t miss out on our fun lifestyle.

Gill, as a specialist CranioSacral Therapist, uses internationally accepted Cranio techniques on the full body. These techniques loosen up head bones, the membranes surrounding the brain which then form the spinal canal, tailbones, organs and nerves. By treating the whole body, it assists the nervous system to stay healthy or to repair. This can potentially help with a reduction in pain or problems far later on in life.

Gill’s comprehensive website lists positive testimonials ranging from rugby players who suffered head knocks, to others suffering ongoing issues who have found relief after attending the Bealey Avenue clinic. The site clearly explains ‘What is a Concussion?’ and ‘How CranioSacral Therapy Works’.

Trauma or any head knock, Gill says, can lead to chronic brain damage and malfunction, yet problems may not show up until later in life. Symptoms may include migraines, headaches, dizziness, tinnitus, nausea, double-vision, fatigue, poor sleeping, vomiting, neck pain, nerve problems, poor concentration, aggression, depression and anxiety. Problems can appear sometimes immediately, but other times years later, Gill explains.

Effective Concussion Treatment: Gill Redden Cranio


Concussion is a serious injury and occurs frequently. According to ACC statistics, there are about 35,000 head injuries in New Zealand each year. Despite the fact that we seem to hear about concussion happening mostly on the sports field, actually only 21 percent of all head injuries in this country are sustained through sport-related injury.

Today there is an increased awareness and understanding of what a concussion is and that the impact of the injury may be either immediate or delayed. People who have suffered a head knock can potentially suffer anxiety, depression and make poor decisions either immediately or years on from the initial trauma. The good news though, according to Gill Redden, a specialist concussion practitioner, is that concussion, even an old concussion, is treatable. “Any amount of force will impact the head,” Gill explains.

“This causes the head bones to jam up and the membranes surrounding and protecting the brain to twist and tighten to try to accommodate these jammed bones. What I do is physically unjam or free up the head bones through quiet, gentle manipulation. “This is a non-invasive, drug-free treatment called CranioSacral therapy, a technique which came into its own in the 1970s and which is extremely effective.” Gill takes a full body treatment approach when treating a concussion, helping to align the body, the neck and various organs to release compression and to allow uninterrupted flow.
