I came across this article as I was perusing the research on hyperbarics this week. Earlier this year, the National Brain Injury Rescue and Rehabilitation study was founded to address, among other things, if Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy was helpful for traumatic brain injury and PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress disorder). The general consensus has been yes, but they needed to put the research together so they can present it to the Department of Defense as a viable treatment option for brain injured veterans and active military personnel.
The study came back with a resounding Yes! Patients got better regardless of sex, age, and time lapsed since injury. Even a patient who had been injured over 40 years prior got an improvement in their symptoms. And there were no adverse effects.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is one of those wonderful tools that give such great results with virtually no side effects. Very few drugs can boast that outcome. If you have had a brain injury, stroke, concussion, car accident, fall, head trauma, please give us a call so we can help you get your life and your health back.
