Sidney Crosby’s recovery is back in the hands of Canadian-born chiropractor Ted Carrick.
The Pittsburgh Penguins announced Monday their captain will meet with Carrick this week. Crosby was treated by the founder of chiropractic neurology in August and credited him with helping accelerate his return from a concussion earlier this season.
Crosby last played for the Penguins on Dec. 5, when his concussion symptoms returned.
Crosby’s agent, Pat Brisson, noted Carrick specializes in helping improve the “vestibular system” — which contributes to balance and spatial awareness.

Uh, WHAT? You would put your brain health in the hands of a chiropractor? That is insane. Did the concussion mess with rational judgement as well? Concussions are serious. His condition sounds SERIOUS. Let me be perfectly clear: Chiropractors are not equal to medical doctors. Especially considering IT’S YOUR BRAIN! One would think that the best specialists would be consulted, people who have actually studied brains and how they function and can malfunction. Very. Scary.
