Concussion & Traumatic Brain Injury
Concussions are traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) that damage the brain. They are often caused by some type of external force, including wounds that penetrate the skull and closed-head injuries.
Concussions can have varying degrees of severity, but all are considered serious injuries that should be evaluated by a medical professional. Professional and adolescent athletes, particularly those involved in contact sports, tend to be more at risk. TBIs are also the signature wound of veterans returning home from Iraq and Afghanistan. However, anyone could suffer a concussion. Sports injures, car and motorcycle accidents, falls—all could result in brain trauma.
Symptoms—emotional, physical and cognitive—may include headache, dizziness, memory loss and personality changes. They can be short-lived or last for months or even years without resolving.
The use of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy to treat concussions and traumatic brain injuries in patients aims to relieve symptoms and accelerate recovery by promoting damaged tissue repair and angiogenesis, or blood vessel growth.
Our experienced clinical team is available to help you identify appropriate candidates for Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy and to answer any additional questions about HBOT or our facilities. You deserve the best – our mission is to achieve patient success through personalized, innovative, and compassionate care that enhances your healing potential. We do so at the lowest possible out-of-pocket cost for your patients, with only one copay and/or less coinsurance than at a hospital-based HBOT program.
