    Programs We Offer
    Concussion Services

    Advances in the past decade have opened the medical communty's eyes to the importance of proper diagnosis and treatment of concussions. We no longer view a concussion as an event where someone is "knocked out". We now know that concussions can occur from any blow to the head, or from any quick, forceful movements to the head and neck, such as whiplash. Many people experience no change in consciousness during a concussive event. Symptoms of a concussion can include:

    • Dizziness
    • Nausea
    • Vomiting
    • Headaches
    • Blurred Vision
    • Ringing in the Ears
    • Changes in Balance
    • Difficulty Concentrating
    • Difficulty Remembering
    • Difficulty Solving Simple Problems
    • Unexplained Emotional Changes
    • Agitation

    If you feel you may be experiencing any of these symptoms due to a concussion, contact one of our clinics today to learn how we can help you.

    Post Offer Employment Testing
    Last year, our Western PA team performed over 1500 Post Offer Employment Tests (POETs) for local employers.  POETs are required by some employers to ensure newly hired employees are capable of safely performing all of the required tasks of their position before they spend their first day on the job. POETs can help to reduce risk of employee injury, which in turn helps control costs associated with Workers' Compensation claims. If you would like more information about how we can tailor a POET to your company's needs, please contact Sean Miller, director of WorkStrategies, at 724-745-5750, extension 12.
