Concussion Clinic

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. To learn more please click here, you will be redirected to our Concussion Clinic information page.

Custom Sports Guards

NOI has created a line of custom molded braces and guards specific to athletes, designed to protect the athletes from injury. Combining the expertise of experienced athletic trainers and the knowledge of our orthopedic physicians, we can create anything you need. For example, do you need customer shin guards for soccer? We have you covered!

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.
