As March is Brain Injury Awareness Month, WellNow Urgent Care is proud to make brain health a priority at a select number of our regional locations so we can help make it all better for our patients. We continue to expand our treatment and service offerings with state-of-the-art tools to help assess and diagnose mild head injuries, so you at your loved ones can walk in to a WellNow location to get peace of mind.
It is important to note that both devices offered by WellNow should only be used to diagnose non-life-threatening head injuries. Should you suspect you or a loved one’s injury to be life-threatening, immediately seek treatment from your nearest ER.
Available in each of our primary markets at our Greece, Liverpool, Orchard Park and Niskayuna locations, ClearEdgeâ is an FDA-compliant, non-invasive brain health assessment test that typically takes less than 30 minutes to administer. Using both a cognitive and balance assessment, the device analyzes neurologic function following mild brain injuries, such as concussions, in patients aged 8-18. ClearEdge creates a benchmark for your condition to help track you back to full brain health.
For patients aged 18-65, BrainScope Oneâ is an assessment that to determine the course of action following a head injury, such as whether further testing (including a CT scan) would be required. From a stray fly ball to the accidental tumble, BrainScope can also be used to take the guesswork out of your head injury by detecting any functional abnormalities using objective data gathered from an initial ECG alongside two follow-up neurocognitive function tests. Walk in to our Greece, Liverpool and Orchard Park locations for a BrainScope head injury assessment today.
The health professionals at WellNow Urgent Care would urge our patients that head injuries are nothing to be taken lightly. After a bump on the head, walk in to your nearest brain health location for a convenient way to get back on track to optimum health. WellNow is located in your community to help make it all better for you and your loved ones, so you can back to feeling well, now.
