Healing with Hyperbarics

Concussion Treatment

We are developing a treatment protocol for concussions.  

There is strong science to support the idea that a hyperbaric oxygen treatment, as soon as possible after a concussion, can aid in the resolution of the injury.

Evidence shows that treatment does three things:

  1. Oxygenates the damaged brain cells which allows them to repair themselves.
  2. Decreases the swelling to allow blood flow to the damaged area to return to normal.
  3. Mitigates the inflammatory response.  We believe this will be a key to the treatment in the future.

The following is a discussion of the science supporting this treatment for acute concussions.
