Katie was horseback riding in a field when she fell and suffered a concussion.\n“I had problems with my vision. I was dizzy. I had trouble in very bright places. Loud noises bothered me. My vestibular system was really upset by everything. Like, if I were to walk into a grocery store, that was really, really hard for me,” Katie said.\nKatie was referred to Micky Collins of the UPMC Sports Medicine Concussion Program. Dr. Collins implemented an individualized treatment program to get Katie back to her day-to-day life.\nShe said within two weeks of beginning her treatment program she was able to see improvements in her condition.\n\u201cI just can\u2019t believe that you\u2019re telling me I can just be myself again. I mean, this is great!\u201d He\u2019s probably the reason why I\u2019m here today and still able to ride,” Katie said.\nLearn more about Katie’s story by visiting the ReThink Concussions website.
