POST-CONCUSSION SYNDROME AND TREATMENT GUIDELINES 1) CERVICOGENIC Background Cervical spine injury is well documented following a trauma; however, it is often overlooked following a concussion.

Anatomically, the cervical spine is closely linked to structures that can cause many of the same symptoms as concussion.

A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury — or TBI — caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head or by a hit to the body that causes the head and brain to move rapidly back and forth.

This sudden movement can cause the brain to bounce around or twist in the skull, creating chemical changes in the brain and sometimes stretching and.
