In Response to Re: Crosby out again indefinitely.....recurrence of concussion symptions
In Response to Re: Crosby out again indefinitely.....recurrence of concussion symptions : they might have well said he has an "upper body" injury. please explain where the soft tissue is in the neck. they didn't. the spinal cord? neck muscles? a neck injury that has "concussion-like" symptoms? this to me is nothing but pr material. there is no such thing as "concussion-like" symptoms, it's a concussion, or it's not a concussion. they never would have even used the word concussion, if they didn't have to(it's a loaded gun these days), meaning it was a concussion! my guess is, it's their way of avoiding blame for him coming back too early. "oh no it's not his head, that would be a concussion, sidney has a soft tissue neck issue, with concussion-like symptoms. TOTALLY DIFFERENT. we as team doctors are in no way responsible for clearing him too early. whew, i hope they buy it." damage control my friend. just my opinion. and btw, there was a second shooter on the grassy knoll.

The irnoy of your statement here is pretty striking. You indict Sidney Crosby, his agent, Mario Lemieux and the Penguins, the NHL, and Thomas Jefferson University Hospital as perpetrators of an elaborate, coordinated PR-hoax (based on absolutely zero evidence) and then accuse me of being a conspiracy theorist. You're either a brilliant troll, or you've just made a pretty blatant logical error.
There's absolutely no way they are lying about this. I'm not a doctor, but it would be a significant scandal if they were lying. TJU is one of the most reputable medical schools in the country and they have one of their neuroligists QUOTED as calling it a soft-tissue injury with significantly less recovery time. Just imagine the liabilities of making false statements to their reputation, let alone the insurance companies. It's completely delusional to think they are making this up.
I just googled *.edu sites and brought up a few other Research institutions studying soft-tissue neck injuries that result from whiplash, feel free to search their indexed pages for information on soft-tissue injuries.
this is just the first page of google results:
Yale, Harvard, NYU, UCSD, Ohio State, Texas
