Claude Giroux has been visiting chiropractic neurologist Dr. Ted Carrick in Georgia since Monday, according to his agent, CAA Sports’ Pat Brisson.

Brisson said Giroux is “doing real well” and was hoping to have a full report later on Wednesday night.

Giroux, 24, suffered a neck injury on Nov. 16 in Germany while playing for the Berlin Polar Bears when he was checked in the head. Prior to that, his time in Europe was well spent, collecting 19 points in 9 games for the Polar Bears.

Dr. Carrick, based at the Life University in Marietta, Ga., is best known for treating NHL stars Sidney Crosby, Jonathan Toews and Minnesota forward Guillame Latendresse for their concussions. 

At this point, all that has been reported is Giroux has suffered a “neck injury,” though Brisson has not ruled out a concussion.

For more background on Carrick, follow up with our later report here.

More information coming when it is available.
