Elias Pettersson May Be Dealing With More Than A Concussion

from Ben Kuzma of the Vancouver Province,

“He definitely has a concussion and probably has whiplash and has probably injured his left shoulder,” said Sigalet, a founding practitioner of the Burnaby-based Catalyst Kinetics Group and consulting chiropractor for players in the NHL, CFL, Rugby Canada, MLS and Canadian Olympians.

“I can guarantee you that the left side of his neck — the way it got ripped back — the left anterior part can be completely inhibited.

“If somebody isn’t working on that to make it react again properly, it just leaves you susceptible for being injured again. He needs to have good manual therapy and get started on an anti-inflammatory specific protocol for brain inflammation.”

Chiropractors calling themselves doctors is bullshit. And it’s unethical to diagnose a patient you haven’t seen. Chiropracty is pseudoscience nonsense (except for, maybe, low back pain and even then it’s not the best choice).
