Connor Massimo, Physiotherapist and Founder of Pulse Physiotherapy in Peterborough, leads a discussion about returning to sport after experiencing a concussion/TBI. This episode brings together athletes from various sport backgrounds who have competed at different levels to talk about stigma and identity following a concussion.

In November 2020, OBIA partnered with Headsup Concussion Advocacy Network and the former Ontario Neurotrauma Foundation to develop a multi-media series titled Sharing Experiences with Concussion/TBI. The goal is to provide more context and understanding to the many different experiences following Concussions and Traumatic Brain Injuries.

This series has seven episodes that will be released throughout June as part of Brain Injury Awareness Month. The episodes are led by a leading expert in the field and consist of a group of individuals who have sustained brain injuries discussing their experiences in a safe and supportive environment.

Each episode looks at different aspects of the recovery process.

NOTE: The OBIA Helpline provides confidential, emotional support for anyone who needs a caring, compassionate and non-judgmental listening ear. The OBIA Helpline also provides information, advocacy, and makes appropriate community referrals.

Whether you have sustained a concussion (mild traumatic brain injury), moderate to severe brain injury, you are not alone, we are here to help! If you need support, call 1-800-263-5404.
