Excellent information

I had a serious car accident sustaining head injury. CT scan was taken in emergency with no bleeding and swelling, so I was sent home. I went to see my family doctor and diagnosed a concussion. He told me to go home and rest, and I will be all good in a couple weeks. Apparently, I didn’t get any better and feeling hopeless . Then my daughter found this podcast in google and then connected me with this clinic. Thanks God. I have a whole team of doctors and professionals who know how to treat me. After a few weeks treatment, I start seeing improvements and feeling hopeful. Thank you Team of Toronto Concussion Clinic.

Quality information delivered with clarity and empathy.

So many concussion podcasts have great info - but are difficult for people with concussions to listen to. The hosts speak slowly and clearly - helping you learn without sounding patronizing. They also understand the many facets and treatments of post concussion symptoms, speaking from a practical perspective with plenty of empathy. Thank you for these informative and gentle conversations - I hope you come back with more!

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.
