He was unable to do more than three periods in his school day before his symptoms got to the point he could not continue.
He had been assessed at a concussion clinic who were monitoring his progress, but no treatment had been done other than prescribing painkillers to help with the headaches.
After one osteopathic treatment, he was feeling significantly better.
The nausea was completely gone after the second session, and the headache was nearly completely gone after the third, to the point he had stopped taking any painkillers.
Shortly after this, he was able to return to school full-time, and I have continued to see the patient for a few weeks following to try to ensure a complete and full recovery.
Osteopathy, and in particular Cranial Osteopathy, works in a gentle and non-invasive manner to mobilise the connective tissues and muscles around the head and neck in order to reduce this compression and restore normal fluid flow and drainage.
