Concussions/Traumatic Brain Injuries: The silent Epidemic


If a disease were killing our children in the proportions that brain injuries are, people would be outraged and demand that this killer be stopped.

Former Surgeon General Everett Koop, M.D. (From the Brain Injury Association of Oregon)

On one side are tens of thousands of people who suffered a concussion.
On the other side are doctors ill equipped to handle this.
In the middle is a doctor on a mission.

Dr. George Siegfried of McMinnville, OR has dedicated his practice career to helping others live a better life after suffering a concussion by providing the Bilateral Nasal Specific Technique, which “unlocks” the 22 movable bones of the head.

Dr. Siegfried has over 30 years experience as a chiropractic physician and has been
specially trained in treating concussions, having spent over 1,000 hours studying with the developer of the Bilateral Nasal Specific Technique.

The biggest misconceptions about concussions is that  people will recover fully from them and they will go away. Concussions can begin at birth from birth trauma, forceps delivery, or vacuum suction delivery. Another common cause are kids who play sports or who fall and hit their heads.”

According to Prevacus (Spelling?) website high school athletes sustain an estimated 300,000 concussions per year.  Most athletes with concussions are affected for life and headaches, balance, and memory problems are common.

Currently, the common treatment options are evaluating the patient and if they are walking or talking to release them. They are often given some kind of drugs. Medical Standard of Care doesn’t recognize the Bilateral Nasal Specific Treatment for concussions or other brain conditions. They do not recognize that the bones of the head move and when compressed, brain function is altered. Other medical treatment for persistent systems may include rehab.

Imaging studies like CT scans, MRI, and PET scans are very effective in determining structural abnormalities in the brain after a traumatic injury. In fact, many concussion events that require a visit to the Emergency Department will involve an imaging test. Most imaging techniques can reveal skull fractures and internal bleeding and lesions on the brain, and they can be informational tests if the person is experiencing prolonged symptoms days and/or weeks following the injury. Despite the effectiveness of these types of imaging studies to identify structural damage, concussions are often characterized by functional, neurometabolic damages– Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) according to Dr. Omalu, M.D.) in the brain and require other types of cognitive and postural stability tests to assess the severity and extent of any damage.

” It’s important to see a professional who specializes in concussions and not just any doctor, ” says Dr. Siegfried

Dr. Siegfried’s career highlights include past Vice President of Oregon Board of Chiropractic Examiners, Oregon Chiropractor of the Year, Massage therapist for Broadways Shows ” A Chorus Line” and “Ain’t Misbehavin.” Also Chiropractor for the Italian Olympic Team Track and Field.
