Carmichael, California: October 24, 2011 – A press release published last week by the Foundation for Chiropractic Progress reported that National Hockey League (NHL) player Sidney Crosby has been displaying a reduction in the severity of the after-effects from a concussion he sustained a year ago, which included symptoms of instability, fogginess, dizziness and light sensitivity. Thanks to the care of Dr. Ted Carrick, a Doctor of Chiropractic with specialized training in neurology, Crosby has reported improved cognitive and physical functioning, and has been progressing remarkably well.
Chiropractic Neurology utilizes an exclusive neurologically-based intervention that often is successful in the recovery from concussion. According to the Foundation, board certified Chiropractic Neurologists are specialists that receive an additional three years of specialty training to specifically deal with the functional integrity of the brain and nervous system.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) defines a concussion as atype of traumatic brain injury (TBI) caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head that can change the way the brain normally works. According to Dr. Carrick, a spokesman for the Foundation who treats other NHL and NFL players as well as Crosby , “Concussions can occur in any sport or recreation activity. Many people who suffer these injuries suffer seemingly irreparable symptoms that affect their daily activities and performance.”
Key points of the press release included:
- Concussions can occur in any sport or recreation activity
- In professional hockey alone, there are more than 50,000 hits annually, many of which cause serious injuries to the head
- A recent report by the National Center for Catastrophic Sport Injury Research, concluded that more than 500,000 concussions are sustained by the 4.4 million children who play tackle football.
In conjunction with nutritional therapies, exercise and rehabilitation, treatment methods based on Chiropractic Neurology are brain-based, non-invasive, drug-free physical rehabilitation, using receptor-based stimulation, such as:
- Chiropractic adjustments
