“I started SlackBow Training a year after sustaining a concussion. I hate to preach, but in terms of active recovery, it set me further ahead than any other therapy I went through to get me back to daily life.
I had been an NCAA athlete, but my recovery from the concussion had failed to be properly overseen by trainers, and I was still struggling with daily tasks. I began seeking help from outlets ranging from vision therapy to multiple neural specialists.
At the end of the day, SlackBow was the best active treatment I found both cognitively and physically both elements of my health that were extremely damaged.
As an athlete, having an obtainable goal of an hour of SlackBow Training which was healthy and also showing rapid progress toward my health when all other outlets were causing pain and fatigue was hugely successful toward my recovery.
I cannot speak for the science, only my experience. After a year of struggling to function on a day-to day basis, SlackBow started providing a turning point by bringing back my coordination, balance, focus, attention span, and ability to process the environment around me—all things people with functioning brains think are very simple tasks!
SlackBow was providing stimulation for my body and brain. Balance causes every muscle in your body to fire, as you are never in balance but constantly readjusting to stay balanced. These processes fire your mind and your body in a natural, subtle, healthy environment.
On the days I was unsure I was going to be able to get out of bed due to pain, I made it my goal to SlackBow for 10 minutes. That 10 minutes would bring my alertness to a new level that no other activity could by firing my muscles and my brain.
Therefore, SlackBow would give me my greatest chance at a successful day. Other sports or activities, even on low levels, required elevated heart rates that caused headaches, speed that caused vision pain, or my other option was no movement, causing stagnant progress. SlackBow provided a solution to all of these things—helped to retrain my vision and focus, a controlled heart rate, no danger of further injury, while also working to fix my vertigo.
My first SlackBow session was a year ago. I am still working through postconcussion symptoms, and in a perfect world, I would be able to SlackBow daily. While I travel, I am attempting to incorporate what I have learned into my daily schedule.
I incorporate all of my new knowledge into my coaching techniques, and as an athlete, I wish I had known what I know now at 15. I think it would have positively impacted my entire athletic career.
I have nothing but positive things to say about SlackBow as someone working through long-term concussion symptoms, an athlete, and as a coach. I wish I had been introduced to SlackBow years earlier.” — Taylor
