Each concussion is unique. At NEINH the evaluation and management is specific to the individual and the injury sustained. We create a treatment plan based on the individual’s age, past medical history, and symptoms at time of visit in order to facilitate a healthy recovery.
Our program has 3 main goals
- Provide the highest level of medical care to children, adolescents and adults with concussions, to allow for the fastest safest return to school, sports or work.
- Increase research-based knowledge, skills and instrumentation used in evaluation and treatment of concussion
- Improve the general knowledge of our community in regard to early recognition of concussion signs and symptoms and proper management of concussion to prevent long term complications.
To assist us in achieving our goals, we have chosen to refrain from joining insurance companies that limit our time with patients and the services that we can provide. Therefore, we are considered out of network for all insurance companies. We will provide you with an itemized bill that can be submitted to your insurance company for reimbursement. If the injury occurred during a school sporting event, you may be eligible to use the school insurance to cover any out of pocket expenses not covered by your insurance. Please check with your school. We will be happy to complete any necessary forms.
You will be monitored on a regular basis, based on your personal needs. Each visit will be a time when we evaluate your progress, problem solve any issues and provide you with an updated plan of care.
A neuropsychological assessment by our pediatric neuropsychologist may be included in a patient’s care to characterize cognitive and psychological functioning in the context of his/her concussion.
