I fell off my bicycle over a year ago and got a concussion to the back of my head, even though I was wearing a helmet. This past year, I’ve been coming to Vision Therapy twice a week, had seen a neurologist, occupational therapist and continue to see a therapist for weekly craniosacral massage.
My symptoms were: severe headaches, light sensitivity, balance problems, blurry vision, low energy, memory issues, and neck and back pain. All of these have mostly been alleviated.
I have learned to “rest my brain” by taking short breaks throughout the day. I no longer use an iPad, and only use the phone for communication. I walk 30 minutes daily, I play board games and brain games, I get 8 hours sleep, exercise my eyes. All this has come from vision therapy. My brain is much sharper than it was before my accident. My balance has improved, and I am confident driving again.
Thank you, Dr. Liz, Shelly, Rachel and Frieda. This time was well spent and a real-life changer.
