Blackhawk's Captain, Johnathon Toew's Experience with Chiropractic

Johnathon Toews went through the NHL's standard tests for concussions and passed all of them but still had issues. He gives Chiropractic the reason why he is back on his feet...

Hawks captain says concussion effects lingered until 5-day stint at chiropractic neurology center last week

Jonathan Toews wasn’t fully recovered from a concussion when he played during last season’s playoffs.

While Toews was symptom-free and had cleared all the NHL-imposed concussion protocols before returning to the Hawks’ lineup, there were lingering effects from the injury that even the 24-year-old center didn’t realize were affecting him. They included balance and eyesight issues that were discovered and solved during a five-day stint at an Atlanta-area chiropractic neurology facility last week.

“But (the chiropractic neurology work) got me back to Square One and I feel great. When I walked out of there I was definitely really tired because you’re doing a lot of exercises that wear on you, but it’s definitely a good thing.”

Toews returned Saturday after spending time undergoing a battery of tests and corrective methods at the Carrick Institute at Life University in Marietta, Ga. The institute has treated other high-profile athletes, including the Penguins’ Sidney Crosby, who has had his career threatened by concussions.
