As the lead physiotherapist
involved in the clinical trials, I saw firsthand some of the most impactful and
meaningful changes that participants experienced. As a result of improvements
in their balance and gait, many were able to perform independent self-care
tasks such as dressing, showering, walking up and down the driveway, and going
grocery shopping. Kim Skinner, PT, DPT, Director

I had suffered multiple mild and moderate traumatic brain injuries due to soccer and falls. In addition to my chronic post-concussion symptoms, I had chronic balance and gait issues that interfered with my ability to play sports, work and attend school. After having tried several treatments in the past, I came to Neurotherapy Montreal hoping the PoNS TreatmentTM could help me recover and return to work. After completing the PoNS TreatmentTM I have experienced improvement in my balance and gait. While I may never be back as I was before my injuries, my improvements have helped me to assume a new sense of normalcy.
Because of better balance, I had a willingness to socialize again. I was
not only able to return to work, but I applied for and received a new
job in a leadership role. I was also able to return to more vigorous exercise because my fear of injury as a result of my TBI
symptoms lessened. My other comment is that the PoNSTM device is not magic. It is
accompanied by a demanding and structured program administered by professionals
in this field. Like anything else in life, it requires dedication and hard work
to reap the rewards of this scientific marvel for those with TBI. – A.P.
