January 29, 2015 — Frederick Carrick, DC. PhD, is a world-renowned chiropractic neurologist, active brain researcher, teacher, and clinician who attends to patients throughout the world. Next month, he will present four hours on “mTBI and Sports Concussion: Diagnosis and Treatment” at the upcoming Florida Chiropractic Association (FCA) Panhandle Convention, Feb. 5-8, at the Hilton Sandestin Resort & Spa. Carrick’s classes will take place on Saturday, Feb. 7 and are sponsored by the ACA Council on Neurology.
Carrick is the Distinguished Postgraduate Professor of Clinical Neurology at Logan College of Chiropractic, the author of Neurophysiological Implications in Learning, and for 21 years has had a specialty practice limited to the diagnosis and treatment of neurological disorders.
“The past decade has been an incredibly exciting time, in terms of our rapidly growing knowledge of the human brain,” he said. “The present and future potential for the application of this expanding knowledge base, toward the benefit of human kind, is astounding.”
Carrick will present a vibrant and current model of traumatic brain injury and address the current evidence-based standards in diagnostic and therapeutic applications. The presentation, designed for clinicians, will be practical and utilize real case scenarios. He will discuss his current NIH registered research investigations in this area and share methodology that will promote an increase in clinical ability.
Carrick will also talk of his experience with Olympians from around the world, as well as high profile sports figures from hockey, football, skiing, soccer, gymnastics, and more. He will address the current media frenzy specific to brain injury and how the clinician can position him/herself in the treatment arena, as well.
Participants will be able to classify traumatic brain injury and differentiate between the various clinical disorders commonly seen. They will sharpen interpretive skills in diagnostic testing and translate this information into clinical applications.
“The Florida Chiropractic Association is pleased to offer this level of neurological content within the context of an annual, regional continuing education event for chiropractic physicians,” Jeff Bos, DC, FACO, president of FCA, said. “And we thank the ACA Council on Neurology for their support in offering Dr. Carrick and other renowned neurologists at four out of five of our convention venues this year.”
