Cary Mullen is down and
Crazy Canuck wannabee suffers yet another concussion
after Michael Leahy, chiro to the stars says it's o.k. to ski!
heads home after another crash - Edmonton Sun - December 16,
1998 - This is further testimony that chiropractors convince people that
concussions can be overcome with just a twist of the neck. Earlier
this year Cary
Mullen went to Colorado Springs to see Dr. Michael Leahy at
the Champion Health Clinic. Leahy is one of North America's "chiros
to the stars" and just loves the attention that these athletes bring
to his practice. Mullen, on the other hand needed the boost he wanted to
return to the other Crazy Canucks on the Canadian ski team.
Even though he claims that 30 conventional medical practitioners could
not help him, he went merrily on his way to the chiropractic sports wizard
and returned after one treatment with the belief that his neck
muscles were actually connected to the dura, the lining of the brain.
By using his Active Release Technique ARTTM
on Mullen, he convinced this seriously head-injured man to return to the
ultimate collision path and downhill skiing. His numerous appearances on
CBC undoubtedly resulted in more business for his clinic. Will Mullen
head back to the Colorado for Christmas, for some more rearranging of his
muscle-brain confluence, or will he finally hang it up and join the CBC
as a colour commentator, a little less dizzy, but nonetheless ready for
Places you might go to get some medical advice and help on neuroanatomy,
concussions, headaches, and any other pain in the neck you might have when
you hear about chiropractors who may have contributed to the end of one
of our Canadian skiers.
