Education as Medicine

The Center for Sports Neurology and Pain Medicine was intentionally designed and physically constructed to optimize the opportunity for communication and the quality of education, knowledge, and insight we provide to our patients and clients.

We constructed the check-in and waiting room areas to facilitate exchange of information from us to our patients/clients (through scrolling informational powerpoint slide presentations available on large format flatscreens and iPads or desktops). We also promote information exchange from our patients/clients to us through tablet-based artificial intelligence and machine-learning programs available prior to or after examination room assessments.

Our examination rooms include comfortable recliner-style chairs that allow patients and clients to sit at the same height as our examining physicians to better facilitate communication. The chairs can then be reclined fully and raised to convert into a traditional “table” for medical examinations. These rooms also include large format flat-screen monitors that are used in digital signage mode to project Health Tips to our patients with meaningful, easy to understand information on brain health. These Health Tips are also available on our social media feed, (with regular updates), in addition to relavent information on Sports Neurology, Neurological Health Across the Lifespan, and Pain Management. These in-room flatscreens are also used to project educational information, animations, and presentations from our Sports Neurology and Pain Medicine website (guided by our medical staff), as indicated/appropriate for the individual patient and client.

The Center has access to technologies such as BodyViz that further improve on education and insight. BodyViz is an exciting and revolutionary way to get a personalized, 3-D interactive image of what is going on inside the body, directly from MRI or CT scan onto an iPad. Our health professionals will help you combine a unique verbal and visual learning experience, so you can make better sense out of why you are experiencing what you are experiencing. This enhances your ability to make informed, educated medical decisions making and helps us tailor a treatment plan especially for you.

We believe that a well-informed patient is a better patient. Shared medical decision-making results in better outcomes. We respect the effect that knowledge and insight has on symptom severity, function, and quality of life. Our goal is for patients to have the highest level of sophistication regarding their diagnosis, our recommended interventions and the rationale for those recommendations.
