Post Traumatic Stress (PTS)

DAVID TORRES – Army Veteran

Please tell us a little bit about yourself…..

  • Branch of Service: Army
  • What is your rank: SFC
  • What wars: IRAQ
  • How many tours: 2
  • Diagnosis of PTSD: 2009

Why did you seek Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?

  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
    • Anger, sleeplessness, hyper alert, anxiety, invasive thoughts and images
  • Traumatic Brain Injury
    • Poor concentration, memory lapse, migraines

Please tell us what it was like undergoing hyperbaric oxygen treatment…….

  • At the beginning: A lot of anxiety
  • After doing a few treatments: Comfortable relaxing, Higher hopes because I saw physical changes in my daughter so it made me feel that something is getting fixed on the inside.  I did not notice any changes to myself until after 20 treatments

How do you feel after having 40 treatments

  • Sleeping better: going to bed a decent time and getting a couple of more houses of sleep
  • I have more energy
  • Concentration has increased
  • Anger spell have decreased
  • Migraines have decreased

Did you have other side benefits with the treatment; 

  • I had two torn tendons in my right wrist and was bad
  • After the surgery I was able to use my hand within two weeks
  • At my post op appointment the doctor was amazed at how quickly I healed and with barely any scare tissue (he knew before the surgery that I was doing HBOT)
  • 5 weeks after surgery I was given the ok to start strength training which was way ahead of schedule.
  • I just finished an assessment this week at my therapist and he informed me that the strength in my hand is already on par if not better than individuals that never had surgery

What was your experience at Oxygen Oasis? 

  • Uplifting environment
  • Staff is amazing, knowledgeable and accommodating
  • Equipment was not intimidating and comfortable for the entire session
  • Made me feel at home
  • Caring experienced staff
  • Made me feel welcome; part of the family
  • Flexible schedule
