Shortly before her injury, Jaime Thibodeaux was featured in National Audubon magazine for volunteer work for a local chapter, the Mississippi Headwaters Audubon Society. Professionally she was an ecologist specializing in health of streams, rivers, lakes and wetlands and led a very active life prior to her concussion and neck complications.

In 2015 Jaime sustained a concussion and corresponding neck injury playing adult recreational ice hockey. She sought care from medical experts across the country, including the Mayo Clinic, functional neurological chiropractor, and a specialized concussion clinic in Canada. But, no place was able to explain why she felt so terrible and appeared to be getting sicker. Jaime became an advocate for active, whole-body management of concussions and post-concussion syndrome as co-founder of the facebook group: Post Concussion Support-real support for all Concussion Types along with Kristin Thomas Cooperstock. Kristin also is a survivor, former caregiver, who understands that trauma to the head most usually strongly effects the neck, because it's all connected.

Jaime's personal savior has been a physical therapist trained by the Postural Restoration Institute in Lincoln, NE. See posturalrestoration.com. The therapy has saved her from the darkest depths of sickness. The Postural Restoration Institute trained therapists use breathing and posture to reduce your fight-or-flight response, bring your head and body into alignment, and increase over-all oxygen supply to the brain. You can find physical therapists trained by the Postural Restoration Institute on their website.
