Spotlight on:

Brooke Cantrell

I started having symptoms in 1st grade, raising my hand and telling my teacher she had static floating around her. I was taken to an eye doctor, and my VS has since been dismissed my whole life. I come from a small town where progressive healthcare is not commonly practiced; I thought I was crazy; perhaps it was in my head. Then I came across a research article about VS when I was in Physical Therapy school a year ago. I have since scheduled a neuro-ophthalmology appointment, and the feeling of validity is helping me cope.

I cope with my VS by allowing myself decompression time after my busy day of being an outpatient physical therapist. I love to help people, and I love to help all of my patients in a holistic way. I cope by showing others the care and compassion I wish I had received as a child from the healthcare community in the US.
