I’m at the 16 week mark since the day of the car accident and it’s been just about 4 weeks since I’ve been released to start working out. Every day I feel myself getting stronger physically and my brain is slowly getting better as well. Although I’m getting better I still have a lot of recovery ahead of me and I’m dealing with daily headaches/migraines.
The most exciting news since the last update is that I got my “Thinking Speed” on the Impact test up to 23% from 13%. 23% is not great but it is certainly better than 13%. I’m also going to physical therapy 3 days a week for my neck, back and shoulders and 1 day a week for my concussion exertion therapy.
For all the updates and a look into what I’ve been doing for the past 3 weeks watch the video below!
As always please share this series with young athletes who need to be more educated about concussions! I wish I knew then what I know now about brain injuries, especially sports related ones.
