Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for Veterans Suffering with TBI & PTS 

More than 800,000 Veterans returning home from current conflicts have debilitating brain injury and many more Veterans from Vietnam still battle symptoms from brain injury incurred 40+ years ago. 

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is a proven safe and effective treatment for traumatic brain injury in its many forms. It reduces inflammation (edema being a primary cause of tissue damage and pain); reperfuses the vascular system in the damaged tissue with oxygen and nutrients essential to healing (important everywhere but especially in the frontal lobe where higher order cognition occurs); and activates the immune system triggering stem cells to generate new tissue. 

This is one injury with many names: traumatic brain injury; concussion; post-concussion syndrome (concussion not healed); post-traumatic stress (diagnosed brain damage not attributable to direct impact or explosive blast); and traumatic brain injury (brain damage from direct trauma or explosive blast).

Concussion has a constellation of devastating symptoms: persistent headache, nausea, dizziness, loss of balance, loss of short-term memory, sleeplessness, nightmares, depression, loss of executive function, sensitivity to light or sound or both, anger, rage and many, many more.

These symptoms are most often treated symptomatically with pharmaceuticals which do not address the underlying injury. In addition, we know some prescription drugs taken in combination can lead to depression, addiction and abuse.

The Veterans Administration cites traumatic brain injury as a leading cause of Veteran suicide, now estimated at 20 to 22 a day although many believe that number understates the problem.

Unfortunately, the Veterans Administration does not currently recognize hyperbaric oxygen therapy as a treatment for traumatic brain injury. That means VA and other leading insurers do not reimburse for this service. This leaves Veterans suffering from this debilitating injury to pay with cash or charitable donations.  

To honor our great heroes, it has been our goal to provide hyperbaric oxygen therapy, free of charge, to two Veterans annually. 

In addition, a wonderful non-profit organization called Walking Point for PTS & TBI (founded by Liz & Chuck Rotenberry), assist in providing funding for Veterans suffering with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and/or Post Traumatic Stress (PTS) to receive an initial protocol of hyperbaric oxygen therapy (40 treatments).
