Saved my sanity!

Thank you, thank you, thank you. This is an excellent podcast about an area of healthcare that so few people understand. Including the majority of healthcare providers. I have had completely contradictory advice from my various (well-meaning) healthcare practitioners. The protocols for treating concussion seem to have changed significantly over the past couple years, and there are so few places where you can find a team that works together. This podcast has helped me identify treatments to explore for my particular symptoms, prioritize lifestyle changes, and to sift the good advice from the bad. I hope you continue this important information! Please do the episode on dizziness and balance soon. It sounds so hokey to say it, but this podcast has been a real lifesaver for me.

A great resource - and good investment of time while recovering

I came upon this podcast while looking for information on concussions and recovery during the early days of my recovery from my second concussion in five years. Feeling disappointed with the experience and information I received following two hospital visits and a visit to my family doctor, I begrudgingly turned to Dr. Google for more information. Being someone who wanted to limit the screen time which made my symptoms worse, I was very happy to find this podcast from a credible resource. I’m now six episodes in, and very impressed by the clear and succinct information presented in an accessible and digestible, and I’ll even say entertaining way. It’s a great way to keep my mind active and satisfy my need for information to guide me in a healthy and expedited recovery, while limiting the pain and drain of reading and prolonged screen time. I have learned a great deal from the episodes so far and look forward to learning more, and am very impressed by the scope and multi-disciplinary approach of the information shared as well as the practical guidance and advice present, always with the caveat to listen to one’s body first and foremost. This is a great resource to supplement information available from one’s primary care physician and online or in lieu of access to a multiple multi disciplinary healthcare team to support concussion recovery to guide you in building your own team and supports to promote recovery.
