The following was aired on Nightline on 08/18/2012.

The F. R. Carrick Institute for Clinical Ergonomics, Rehabilitation, & Applied Neuroscience is a global collective of world-class scientists in Biomedical/Rehabilitation Engineering, Neuroscience, Neuropsychology, Ergonomics, and in Physical/Occupational Therapy. Fellows have produced translational research in fundamental biomedical technologies. Applications in Autism & Developmental Disorders, Stroke, Traumatic Brain Injury, PTSD, coma & consciousness, sensation/perception, and in locomotion are ongoing at labs in NY, Cuba, & Israel. Functional Neurology, Rehabilitation and Ergonomics is the scholarly peer-reviewed journal of the the International Association of Functional Neurology and Rehabilitation.

He gained a bit of notoriety near the end of 2011 when he helped Sidney Crosby return to playing NHL hockey after receiving a concussion and experiencing lingering symptoms for nearly a full year. For perspective (in case you do not know), many consider Crosby to be the best current hockey player in the NHL. He scored the winning goal against the US winning the Olympic Gold for Canada in Vancouver in 2010. Many thought that he would not recover from his post-concussion symptoms. He credited his return to the NHL due to Dr. Carrick and scored 2 goals in his first game back. While he did receive another concussion,  he returned to Dr. Carrick to help him return to hockey. The Pittsburgh Penguins were confident enough in Crosby to offer him a $104 million contract over the the next 12 years.

Crosby is not the only professional athlete to be treated by Dr. Carrick. There are a few other hockey players that have come to him for treatment of concussion symptoms as well as some soccer players from Europe and football players from the NFL. But the majority of the people that he treats are normal everyday people whose lives have been terribly affected by the neurological issues that plague them. The treatments that Dr. Carrick provides and the knowledge that he has passed on to other chiropractic neurologists are allowing us help those who are suffering from certain neurological conditions.

I took courses on functional neurology through the Carrick Institute for Graduate Studies in order to become eligible for and pass the examination to become a Diplomate of the American Chiropractic Neurology Board (DACNB). I am the only Board Certified Chiropractic Neurologist in the Toledo area. I have also taken courses recently on Childhood Neurobehavioral and Developmental Disorders.
