Concussion And Neural Disorganization

Concussion Causes Neural Disorganization Plus Related Conditions

A short summery of concussion affects:

Concussion and Cranial Reflexes: There are 9 major cranial reflexes that support cranial bones, brain function and neurology. A major communication junction between right and left hemisphere of the brain is the corpus colosseum. Concussion can and often times impede the transference of brain signal information between these hemispheres. Concussion disrupts and disorganizes neurology full stop.

Concussion and Gait Reflexes: Gait Neuro Reflexes assist the body to move through time and space. These Gait Neuro Reflexes assist in a smooth stride when walking or running. When in sync there is a rhythmic swing and coordination of opposite arms and legs. The Gait Neuro Reflexes do more than this; they assist in the smooth running of all neurological systems of the body including the Immune, Cardiac and Endocrine systems.

Concussion and Lower Back Pain: There are nine different types of back pain I am aware of. With a fall especially from a moving object (horse riding or running e.g.) the person is in what is known as fight/flight. This is a natural survival system to sustain and maintain life. Because of how the muscle system operates throughout the body a twist/rotation occurs to the lumbar spine (L3) when attempting to protect one’s self in a fall. End result lower backache.

Concussion and Reactive Muscle System: The body and muscles operate and function with movement through a Reactive Muscle System. When there is a jamming of cranial bones, this affects the Gait Reflexes. If just one muscle goes into spasm that upsets the whole chain of muscles in that particular system!

Concussion and Sciatica: Sciatica is related to a twisted pelvic bone. There is a particular muscle in this area that squeezes the Sciatica Nerve leaving the person sometimes in severe pain all the way down the leg side carrying the pain. This is very noticeable as the person will demonstrate a limp to the side of pain when walking. The opposite Temporal Bone of the skull is the culprit, something overlooked by many health carers. This Temporal Bone becomes locked up in a backward direction jamming at the Condylar Squamosal Mastoidal Pivot Point where three bones of the skull come together.

Concussion and Immune compromise: Concussion disrupts the Limbic Brain. The Limbic Brain is associated with the five senses; sound, touch, sight, taste and smell. This Limbic Brain is in direct communication with the Immune System. The Immune System is about Digestion, cellular growth and cellular repair plus other important processes. Concussion affects the Limbic Brain directly which then impedes Immune System functionality. Resulting in poor digestion and in some cases poor elimination! Food intolerance and allergies and other digestive disorders are often the result.

Concussion and Cardiac Stress: As there is a back pain directly related to the Cardiac System Neurology, this is important to have this attended to as soon as possible. Unattended this could lead to cardiac complications later on down the track of time.

Concussion and Hormonal Stress: When concussion occurs to anyone the Endocrine System is put out of sync. Because the body and muscles are holding tension, this is an indication the fight/flight neurology is increasing adrenal activity and it stays this way until the adrenals are reset back to homeostasis. Consequently all hormones become out of balance, can also set off anxiety triggers.

Concussion and Scoliosis: Scoliosis is depicted as a twisted or curved spine. However the spine is not the cause of the problem, it is the result of a disorganized nervous system. When a concussion occurs the GAIT Neuro Reflex System cannot signal properly and a particular muscle on one side of the spine does not return back to homeostasis in its resting cycle. This affects the top to bottom and front to back reactive muscle system. If not addressed properly, the spinal column will grow into a twisted and S shape over time. This will cause chronic back pain, Neck tension, shoulder pain, headaches/migraine, dis-orientation, poor coordination, sometimes depression, brain fog and the list is endless as mentioned in the other article by Dr Carl Ferreri.

Concussion and Muscle Tension: Because of the effects of concussion and the disorientation of the Cranial Bone Neuro Reflexes, the muscles of the body go into what is called a Hypertonic State. This affects the Spindle Cells and Proprioceptor cells in the belly of muscles. They are ment to send signal back and forth to the brain through biofeedback via the nervous system.

Hypertonic Muscles are indicated by:

  • Pain in the muscle
  • Weakness – due to ‘muscle proprioceptors’ being in a confused state
  • Restricted range of movement or motion

The other part of the puzzle is the ‘spindle cells’ located in the belly of the muscles. These ‘spindle cells’ monitor and regulate:

  • The rate of change in distance (length) of the muscle and;
  • The time that change takes to occur

Concussion, traumatic brain injury (TBI) can lead to seizures and epilepsy. Head trauma and lack of proper correction of the cranial reflexes is one of the most commonly identified reasons that patients develop epilepsy. Most studies suggest that approximately 6% of patients with epilepsy have Traumatic Brain Injury as the cause. The more severe the head trauma, and lack of proper physical correction of the cranial and gait reflexes the higher the risk of developing epilepsy at a later stage. Concussion is a physical injury to the head and requires a physical type correction.

As you can see concussion is just a little bit more than a knock to the head. It affects the whole body and the nervous system that operates within the body. The nervous system is basically the electrical circuits to many systems to assist the body/brain/mind in its functioning and be aware of being ‘here now’ utilizing the left hemisphere of the brain for logic and reasoning and the right hemisphere for creativity, enjoyment of life and 100+ other things.

Scoliosis is activated by improper neuron function – Brisbane

Scoliosis is activated by improper neuron function associated with the Gait Reflexes that are at fault.

When there is a ‘neurological gait fault’ there is an improper ‘gait cross patterning mechanism’ that is not neurologically stabilized. This is due to improper neuron function, a condition associated with scoliosis.

Scoliosis The Gait Reflexes Neuron Function

gait-reflexes & ScoliosisThe Gait Reflexes neuron function involves all movements of the body muscles with integrity and endurance. This is required for the smooth and functional motion of the body when walking or running and as when jumping. It is also involved with hopping skipping dancing climbing rolling and covers all sporting activity.

There is the Labyrinthine reflex and Ocular Reflex on the back and front of the head and the Anterior Cloaca and Posterior Cloaca Reflex found near the groin on the front of the body and on the bum bones at the back of the body. I won’t use technical names; I want to keep it simple.

These neuro reflexes are meant to keep the long muscle system switching on and off as the body moves through time and space. It is what we call the top to bottom front to back reactive muscle system associated with proper brain neuron function .

Scoliosis and the Muscle Reflexes

Adult Scoliosis Back PainThe first muscle of this system that gets out of sync is the Sacrospinalis that runs the length of the trunk of the body either side of the spine. On one side of the body the Labyrinthine reflex neuron function for some reason does not send a contracting message to this muscle and so the upper portion becomes hypertonic. The opposite lower segment of the Sacrospinalis now keeps contracting as it is no longer counter balanced.

Over time this twists the spinal bones causing the condition known as Scoliosis. Scoliosis is NOT a spinal problem; the twisted spine is the result of improper neuro-muscular signals associated with the Gait Reflexes neuron function .

The Hamstring muscles now become hypotonic (part of the reason football players pull a hamstring when running flat out). This reacts with the Quadriceps muscles on the thighs, they become hypertonic and this now reacts with the abdominal muscles which are hypotonic and the Psoas which is hypertonic.

The next set of muscles is the Anterior Neck Flexors which are hypotonic and there are other muscles involved also. These muscles are neurologically out of sync to one another causing muscle spasms, aches, pain and often reoccurring headaches and migraines and associated neck pain.

How To Observe a scoliosis

To check yourself for a scoliosis is real easy. You don’t need to waste your time and money having an x-ray. Stand in front of a wide enough mirror so that you can see both shoulders. Close your eyes and let both arm relax beside you. Open your eyes and if you notice one shoulder slightly higher than the other, then there is a scoliosis present.

Scoliosis and Growing Pains

A scoliosis can sometimes be associated to the birthing process; this has been a consistent observation over many years. However the scoliosis may not show its presents till puberty. Your child approaching puberty or going through puberty may experience aches an pain. You take them to the doctor and they tell you that it is growing pains. This is total rubbish. This is an indication a scoliosis activated due to hormonal change and poor neuron function . This is often a time when your child is doing a growth spurt, suddenly growing taller. Doctors will openly tell you they don’t know the cause of Scoliosis. Pain killer drugs won’t fix Scoliosis.

Scoliosis Can Effect Brain Function

Now the interesting thing is that most people with a high left shoulder (depending on the severity) and can find maths and that left brain school work somewhat difficult.

People with a high right shoulder seem to have social issues. Now this is not locked in cement.

To have Scoliosis in the first place the body’s flight / flight neurology is locked up which is another reactive muscle system.

Scoliosis And the Fight Flight Muscles

To have the fight / flight locked up there is also a cranial injury complex to the birthing process or some form of head injury or possible concussion.

I give lots of attention to the birthing experience of that individual as a baby and release the emotional mental and physical pain to that experience.

You see if that person as a baby was delivered with the use of forceps, that person will grow up having dyslexia and lots of anxiety and most certainly have scoliosis.

Now a person’s body can also have a right scoliosis as well as a left scoliosis and often these people may suffer constant migraine headaches. It all depends on the severity of the gait reflex; they may also suffer with depression.

Scoliosis And Teenagers

For teenagers with anxiety and or depression it is often associated with puberty. The lower Gait Reflexes are also involved with the reproduction process. Neural energy that is being used for body structure is now withdrawn to develop the reproduction system as there are hormonal changes taking place. Again this may have a birthing stress origin.

You may have heard the term ‘growing pains’ in the adolescent teens. Well this is totally incorrect, what has happened is that a scoliosis has activated and any of what I have written can be experienced by that person.

The next time you walk down the street behind someone look for a high shoulder on that particular body and you are observing scoliosis.
