Guillaume Latendresse was also a patient of Ted Carrick's after suffering a season-ending concussion last year.
Carrick uses a GyroStim, a multi-axis rotating chair that spins in an attempt to stimulate the vestibular system. Latendresse did 60-70, 30-second spins during a five-day stretch.
"The first time I went there, I saw a huge change," Latendresse said. "I felt a real click that I haven't felt since five, six years ago. My energy level is higher. My body just feels 100 percent."
Latendresse believes so strongly in Carrick's treatment, he brought Pierre-Marc Bouchard, who has a history of concussions and missed the second half last season, with him to Marietta in late May.
"It's like I never had any concussion," Latendresse said from his home in Montreal. "I feel 100 percent. I'm doing training like before. I have nothing. I can't even remember when my last headache was."
Though its worth noting that Latendresse has missed about 20 games this season due to flu-like symptoms, whiplash, and migraines.
