Brain Injury following Pole Vault.!

Ryan Brady experienced a traumatic brain injury while pole vaulting in January 2010.

He was temporarily paralyzed, spending two weeks in the hospital and three weeks in rehab.

Now, fully recovered, Ryan has a new appreciation for life. I think we can all take something from this. For the physios out there, that’s why we do what we do and its a nice example of how the mind, body and person can recover. This wasn’t about Ryan being in pain, the main driver would have been function and living…! There are some really positive messages used throughout and it demonstrates what can be achieved with a positive mental attitude.
