Neurovision rehab expert Kyla Demers takes us on a deep dive along the path of better concussion treatments.
Kyla holds degrees in Osteopathy and Athletic Therapy. She began her career in Sports Medicine while working with the provincial teams of Rugby Quebec and has been part of the medical team at the Canada Games twice, and at the Vancouver Olympics. She has also been a consultant for the Armada (QMJHL). Kyla is an Osteopath for Osteo & Cie and pioneers new therapies at Vertex Concussion. A rugby and hockey player, Kyla oversees the treatment of several cases of concussion by providing a thorough assessment and a return to safe and healthy activity. Since 2016, she has worked rigorously on a research project at Concordia University to investigate links between the restrictions of mobility of the neck and head and the persistent symptoms associated with a concussion. The goal is to improve the care available to people with concussions and post-concussive symptoms.
