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. 43-year-old female
As my balance improved, the activities that I’ve been able to return to include various activities of independence, driving, riding a bike, conversing when more than one thing in a room is going on. I engage socially in conversation, sing with a group, catch a ball, dance, walk easily on uneven ground, hike, eat in a restaurant, attend a concert, speak in public, participate in roundtable discussions, shop with minimal or with no dizziness and nausea. – K.W. 56-year-old female
