    Programs We Offer
    Concussion Management Program

    NovaCare Columbus is pleased to announce it is now offering extensive concussion treatment and symptom management. A concussion is an injury to the brain that is caused by a bump, blow or jolt to the head and may result in a loss of consciousness or less obvious symptoms such as memory loss, lack of cognitive skills or balance issues. Concussions can be caused by falls and car accidents—or any other situation where the head receives a sudden jolt—but a majority of concussions are sports related.

    If a person loses consciousness, has trouble breathing, complains of neck pain, weakness or numbness, or is having a seizure, this is a medical emergency and you should call 911 immediately. If you or someone you know has been diagnosed with a concussion and need further treatment, please contact the center closest to you.

    NovaCare is also proud to offer complimentary continuing education classes to Certified Case Managers, Certified Disability Management Specialists and Certified Rehabilitation Counselors in the Columbus area.
