“I’m a much better physiotherapist for having been a patient myself and have come to realise just how physically and mentally strong I can be,” Caitlin said, just a year on from her accident.
“A ski trip in August 2019 left me with a severe traumatic brain injury. It was the last run of the day, a green run, and I was wearing a helmet. A bad stack resulted in a brain injury that left my entire left side paralysed and me in hospital over five months.
“As a physio myself, I knew my rehab/recovery journey would be a long one. I had unwavering support from my family and friends and the team of doctors, nurses and therapists caring for me did an incredible job. I never once felt alone, and I had every opportunity to play an active role in my recovery.”
