Medical P.O.V. on Pacioretty's Injury and Aftermath

Great article about Max Pacioretty's injury.

Might make you feel better, might make you feel worse. Only time will tell:

"It’s really not possible to know for sure what treatment Pacioretty’s neck will need without knowing the extent of the injury. It could be as simple as a neck brace for 6-8 weeks or as complex as surgery to fuse vertebrae — putting in rods or plates. The fact that he was breathing and moving and the the fracture is non-displaced really shouldn’t be downplayed. That’s all great news. He could potentially heal with no lasting effects, and obviously that would be the ideal outcome."
