Concussion Specialist – Sidney Crosby elects to see Dr. Ted Carrick, a Functional Neurologist, for care

Recently in the news an NHL super star, Sidney Crosby, has elected to work out with Dr. Ted Carrick , a  Chiropractic Neurologist, with the Carrick Institute at Life University.   Inside Hockey reported:  Sidney Crosby Video with the Carrick Institute

Back on Jan. 6, 2011, Sidney Crosby suffered a concussion that took him out of the lineup for the Pittsburgh Penguins. After months of utilizing standard medical treatment  with out substantial gains, Sidney Crosby elected to travel to Life University to work with Dr. Ted Carrick and the Carrick Institute of Functional Neurology this past summer. Withing a few weeks, substantial progress was made that allowed Sidney to resume training. A conference was held to discuss Sidney’s prognosis after Chiropractic Neurology. please view the News Conference  with the Penguins Organization, Dr. Ted Carrick – Carrick Institute at Life University and  Michael Collins, Ph.D, the Director of  the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center – Sports Medicine – Concussion Program.

On Nov. 21st, Sidney Crosby re-joined the team on the ice against the NY Islanders, scoring 2 goals.

On December 5th, Sidney was hit around and began feeling some of the symptoms return.

With the less improvement from normal medical care, Sidney Crosby decided to return to Atlanta in January 2012 for care with Dr. Carrick at Life University.

Today, Jan 17th,2012 – the Pittsbugh Gazzette reported: Penguins General Manager Shero said there is no timetable for Crosby to return to the team, although it could be as early as next week, and that Crosby could go through specialized exercises and perhaps skate while under Carrick’s supervision.

“Those [exercises] seemed to help him,” Shero said. “We’re very fortunate [Carrick] was able to do this.”

Shero said he had dinner with Carrick in the fall and learned a great deal about the treatments Crosby had in the summer.
The 24 year old, 2009 NHL MVP, is choosing to use Chiropractic Functional Neurology to make his return to the Ice.
