Comprehensive Care

Each concussion is as unique as the person injured. Some concussions improve quickly, while other patients may experience symptoms that interfere with school, work, or daily functioning for months, or even longer. Through clinical interviews, vestibular-ocular motor screening, and use of ImPACT our providers craft an individualized treatment plan while continuing to monitor recovery during treatment.

Patient needs and treatment planning are very individualized, and although most patients will need some of these services, few will need all.

Patients seen at the RNI Concussion and Brain Injury Clinic will have access to specialty services including:

  • Sports Medicine
  • Neuropsychology
  • Neurology
  • Exertion/Exercise Therapy
  • Neuro-vestibular Therapy

Who We Treat

We treat patients between the ages of 5 – 99 who have sustained or may have sustained a concussion.

Our goal is to evaluate acute injuries as quickly as possible after they happen, as early intervention gets patients on the right track to recovery quickly. However, many patients are first seen here after symptoms have persisted for several months. Initial evaluations are performed either in person, or through telemedicine visits.

Our patients leave each appointment with a targeted treatment plan, updated at every visit. For those who need them, services such as exertion therapy and vestibular therapy are available at our Morgantown clinic.

Education and Outreach

We offer a variety of concussion educational programs for athletes, parents, and coaches to help better recognize the signs and symptoms of concussion, research-based strategies for reducing concussion, and knowing when it safe for an athlete to return to play.

OUR TESTING

ImPACT Baseline Testing

ImPACT is a tool is used by healthcare, education, and sports organizations to help assess and manage concussions. Baseline testing with ImPACT allows providers to document an uninjured athlete’s healthy brain function before a concussion happens. This allows providers to compare brain function before and after a head injury.

ImPACT baseline testing is available at the WVU Rockefeller Neuroscience Institute Innovation Center, located on the WVU Medicine/WVU Health Sciences campus in Morgantown.

For more information on ImPACT baseline testing, please contact concussionreferral@wvumedicine.org
