NOI and ImPACT™ is offering concussion management for children, teens
and young adults involved in sports. We offer baseline and post-injury
neurocognitive tests. Concussion symptoms are often hidden or not recognized,
therefore causing potential health issues now and down the road for the
athlete. According to the United State Center of Disease Control, almost
800 high school athletes reported the following:
69% played with concussion symptoms, but didn't realize it at the time
40% said that their coach was not aware that they had a possible concussion,
in many cases because the athlete didn't know what signs to look for and
therefore did not bring it to the attention of their coach or family member
We want to reduce these statics through education and testing.

Clinic information page.

Fall Prevention Program
Did you know that 1 in 3 people, age 65 and over, falls every year? Falls
are the leading cause of fatal and non-fatal injuries for the older generation,
plus they are costly, both financially and in quality of life. However,
falling is not an inevitable as you age. In fact, through basic lifestyle
adjustments, programs like ours, and community partnerships, the number
of falls can be substantially reduced.
NOI is in the process of implementing a fall prevention program and developing
educational courses we can share with our communities. Please stay tuned
for more information to follow.
