Chiropractic & Functional Medicine Doctors Prevent Major Surgery in Teen Suffering Post-Concussion Migraines

Active Edge Chiropractic & Functional Medicine has ramped up efforts to help migraine sufferers cope with symptoms and find ways to reduce the frequency of migraine headaches in the future. 

Active Edge Chiropractic & Functional Medicine founders, husband and wife team, Dr. Erik Hensel and Dr. Jasmine Craner, helped a patient get total pain relief from Post-Concussion headaches and avoid an expensive neck surgical procedure.

Dr. Jasmine Craner saw the story of a patient named Kayleigh Scott on ABC 6. Kayleigh sought to raise over $15,000 for an experimental surgery to treat her Post-Concussion Headache. 

Upon seeing the news, Dr. Craner reached out to Kayleigh, who later started to get treatment at Active Edge in West Columbus. 

“After the first treatment, all the pain started decreasing, and I thought about my life finally going back,” said Kayleigh, who finally got relief at Active Edge after weeks of failed treatment elsewhere. 

Avoiding expensive surgery 

Chiropractic & Functional Medicine Doctors are leading the way to prevent major surgery in teens and others suffering from post-concussion migraines.  

Despite advances in modern medicine, Dr. Craner says far too many people continue to suffer from migraines each year. 

“Because prescription and over-the-counter pain medications have limitations and don’t address the root cause, migraine sufferers have turned to natural migraine treatment options to alleviate the symptoms,” Dr. Craner explained in an interview. This is especially true of post concussive migraines because the leaky gut associated with concussions and post concussive syndrome is often overlooked.  

Dr. Craner said a few chiropractic treatments that may be involved for migraine resolution include joint mobilization, improving muscular health and range of motion, movement and postural retraining, restoring digestive health or other internal imbalances. These issues may be addressed through Chiropractic Adjustments, Temporary Supplementation or Dietary Changes, Muscle Work, Functional Movement Retraining, or potentially other Lifestyle Recommendations. .

Based in Columbus, Ohio, Active Edge Chiropractic & Functional Medicine’s chiropractors and Functional Medicine practitioners follow a comprehensive method to finding and treating the causes of patients’ injuries and disease, not just treating the symptoms. “Symptoms are side effects of an underlying issue.” says Dr. Craner.  

“At Active Edge Chiropractic, we measure health by how you move and feel. We invite new patients to schedule a Discovery Evaluation. A Discovery Evaluation is your opportunity to spend a whole hour with your doctor, so that we can hear your story and get to know you inside out, top to bottom, and past to present. We couple this with our Snapshot Diagnostic Pannel so we can get the full picture of you, connect the dots, and help you start seeing the results you’re looking for. Rather than telling you we can help you, we’d prefer to show you how we can help you Get Your Edge,” Dr. Craner assured.  

Considering all contributing factors 

In the case of post concussive syndrome, gut health is a commonly overlooked contributor. Most persistent migraines have a variety of factors contributing to their persistence or recurrence. Some of the most common considerations we see are, hormones, stress levels, gut health, daily activities, joint alignment, movement patterns, muscular balance or a combination of the these and other factors. Dr. Erik Hensel has uploaded a video on the Active Edge Chiropractic & Functional Medicine YouTube channel, where he discusses how hormonal changes affect people with migraine disorder.  

“The truth is, hormonal imbalance may be only one piece of the puzzle when addressing migraine headaches. It is crucial to consider all contributing factors including stress levels, food and drink choices, and sleep patterns,” Dr. Hensel said.  

Debilitating headaches and migraines can be life-altering. Those suffering from headaches or migraines can count on Active Edge Chiropractic & Functional Medicine for help.
