Over the last 7 years, over 1 million Ontarians have sustained a concussion. Of this number, over 200,000 individuals will have persistent symptoms such as headaches, nausea, fatigue, and blurred vision – greatly affecting their mood, ability to work, take part in recreational activities, and enjoy life in general.
