Suffering from the Impacts of a Concussion? A Clinical Trial That Might Be For You

February 9, 2017

If you have been following my story, you know that I suffered a brain injury or concussion almost 5 years ago when I fainted during an X-ray and hit my head off a concrete floor.  Freak accident that left me with daily headaches and visual sensitivity among other symptoms.

I have finished the 6.5 week clinical trial (including pre-assessment to qualify) in Montreal. I still don’t know if I had the PoNS device they are testing or the sham one for a focused control group. But, I had an amazing brain physiotherapist there who worked with me within my brain injury symptoms. The goal was to help strengthen my vestibular system and stability. I didn’t realize I had any issue here as I was more focused on the light sensitivity, headaches and symptoms that come with many different forms of stimulation. But turns out, I did have some issues here too. I do see some benefits from this study,but I also still have a way to go in my healing. It was another piece to the puzzle in help putting me back together again. It was a big sacrifice, but I am so glad I did it. If you know anyone suffering from the impacts of a concussion, check this out to see if they qualify.
