What follows is the outline used for the discussion which you are about to hear.  We hope you enjoy this interview!

Dr. Mac, can you tell our listeners a little more about yourself and especially what led you to become a chiropractic physician?  

Okay, Dr. Mac, there are literally dozens & dozens of topics that I would love to discuss with you, however, today I want to focus on Concussions.

There is an abundance of research that has recently come out that has really changed not only our understanding of what a concussion is but perhaps more importantly, how to best manage a patient that has suffered a concussion.  When you look at everything that we now know about concussions it is quite clear to me that your field of chiropractic neurology has taken the lead applying this critical information with regards to patient management.

What are some of the key things we now know about concussions that perhaps we didn’t know until recently?

What are some of the biggest misconceptions that people and unfortunately many doctors still have regarding concussions?

Can you give our listeners an overview of the Chiropractic Neurology approach to treating concussions?

How is this different from conventional medical treatment?

Why is conventional medicine behind or why are they slow to adapt these new principles/techniques & research?  It seems that despite mainstream media coverage of the remarkable recovery that NHL superstar Sidney Crosby made following treatment from chiropractic neurologists, things have not changed much from a conventional medical approach?  

Where can people go that want to learn more about the breakthroughs in concussion research as well as learn more about chiropractic neurology?  Are there any books or internet resources that they should check out?
