I'm 56 years old, at the age of 14 years old, I fell off of a horse that was running at full gallop and landed; squarely, on the top of my head! I remember;vividly, that I sat up and yelled ' catch that horse", and immediatly lost consciousness! I awoke; soon after, only to have amnesia. Which I had for a good part of the day! Soon thereafter; I was making regular visits to a local chiropractor for neck and spine adjustments which continued well into adult hood. 33years ago, I went to see a chiroprator, in San Diego and I was told that what I had was a compressed vertebrea in the lower neck and as it happens it is the one (1) vertebrea in which the main vessel, supplying blood and oxygen to the brain, is routed through as well as the main nerve ganglia! To this day, I still have; sometimes severe pain associated with that vertebrea being out of alignment. I am hopefull that you can enlighten me a bit more, regaurding the possibility of repair and rehabilitation! Thank-you.
