Early life, education and career[edit]

Born in Toronto and raised in Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg, and other locations related to his father's military service,[1] Carrick earned a doctor of chiropractic from Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in 1979 and a PhD in education from Walden University in 1996. His doctoral dissertation "Neurophysiological Implications in Learning" (AAT 9713635) established a relationship between clinical neurophysiology and education.[3]

Carrick received the title of Distinguished Post Graduate Professor of Neurology from Logan University in Chesterfield, Missouri, Professor Emeritus of Neurology Parker University in Dallas, Texas, and Distinguished Professor of Neurology Life University in Marietta, Georgia.[citation needed]

Several professional athletes such as Sidney Crosby, Jonathan Toews, Claude Giroux,[4][5] and Alexandre Pato have sought treatment from Carrick,[6] and in November 2014, radio show host Glenn Beck stated that doctors at the Carrick Brain Center diagnosed and cured him of adrenal fatigue.[7][8]

Publications and appearances[edit]

Carrick has had papers published in journals that address brain trauma from concussion, blast injury and stroke.[9]

The PBS documentary, Waking up the Brain[10] was about Carrick's clinical work. Carrick was the subject of an ABC Nightline News documentary featuring his successful treatment of brain injuries.
