Which is obviously a product of his concussion issues.

From the Mayo Clinic:
Quote:
Overview

The term balance problems covers a wide range of conditions from dizziness to faintness to light-headedness. Normal balance requires your muscle strength to be in tune with three systems of senses: visual, vestibular (found in the inner ear) and somatosensory (sensations from the skin, muscles, tendons and joints). When these systems aren't functioning well, you may experience symptoms of a balance problem, falls and have trouble focusing your eyes. Different medical conditions can cause different types of balance problems. Most balance problems are due to issues in the vestibular system.

I assumed 'dizziness' was simply there way of saying 'balance' or 'motion' issues. It was reported earlier on Twitter by Josh Yohe (Pittsburgh Tribune writer that covers the Penguins) that he's still having motion issues, other symptoms appear to be in check (thus, I'm not sure if he's having headaches).

Sounds like he's having problems with balance, and maybe some issues with how he feels when moving.

It's still related to his concussion, is it not?

It's not. It's just more of the same issues for Crosby and his potential return.

Yes. I don't think the issue was that he was having concussion symptoms, but what concussion symptoms he was having.

In a way I think it is. Sid tried resting for 4-5 weeks in hoping the symptoms would subside.

This is plan B.

besides the symptoms, simply not doing work outs will be a major setback.

The 24-year-old star skated with his teammates for the first time in more than a month last Friday, a first step in what could be another long comeback. He has had dizziness and headaches and problems exerting himself at a high level.

There is no timetable for Crosby's return.

Since he was already meeting with a specialist on a weekly or bi-monthly basis and his symptoms were recurrant, it's pretty much not news.

Who in their right mind would see a CHIROPRACTIC NEUROLOGIST for a concussion? What, could they not get an appointment with an actual doctor? This is gross mismanagement and probably part of the reason Crosby is in this predicament in the first place.

First you have the training staff that can't diagnose a concussion at the winter classic now you're sending/letting your star player, the face of the league (along with Ovi), go to a quack doctor? Are you kidding me!?!

This is either desperation or gross stupidity, maybe a combination of both. Either way Pittsburgh fans should be pissed that this guy is allowed to diagnose and treat their star player. Rather then seeing a qualified medical professional he's visiting a voodoo doctor.

I don't know who's to blame but I pray that an NHL team isn't stupid enough to recommend that player facing a career ending injury go see a chiropractor.

With Crosby's history, I'm amazed not more is not being made about how the Pen's handled LeTang. I remember watching that game and seeing MaxPac crank him and then not too much later LeTang came out and scored the game winner in OT. Now, LeTang has been out ever since then.

How the Pen's let LeTang back out onto the ice and potentially taking another hit is beyond me.

Thats what I'm starting to wonder though. Who is responsible for this? Is Crosby seeing this guy on his own time or is this someone that the team has consulted with? Either way someone needs to step in and tell Crosby to work closely with an actual neurologist instead of visiting some guy with a degree that means squat in terms of actual medicine.

Next thing you know the story will read "Crosby visits world leading acupuncture neurologist to treat concussion."

It's his decision to visit the witch doctor. I don't agree with it, but my hope is that it's just exploiting the placebo effect.

Letang's hit looked nothing like Sid's hit. It wasn't even nearly as severe. It looked like Letang (WHY DO YOU KEEP TYPING LeTang?!) suffered a facial injury (turned out to be his nose) more than a neurological one.

Sounds like my own concussion. Been out from hockey since september. Can do Light/medium cardio but anything else is headaches.

I just hope he returns to the crosby we knew, which is unlikely. A guy of his talent doesn't come around often,

A broken nose does not keep a player out for close to two months. A concussion does. http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/12016/1203922-100.stm
