People who suffer from neurological damage and other brain injuries can highly benefit from hyperbaric oxygen therapy. Our hyperbaric chambers provide 100% pure oxygen, helping grow new blood vessels, decrease swelling and inflammation, and improve the rate of healing. Below are just some of the neurological conditions that can be treated by hyperbaric oxygen therapy treatments:
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy provides as much oxygen to the brain as possible. This revives the oxygen-starved brain tissue that has been damaged by a stroke.
The pure oxygen and heightened pressure stimulate new bloods vessels to grow, and can help to repair damaged ones. This can eliminate swelling, spasticity, and general neurological issues associated with strokes.
Cerebral Palsy can cause some degree of cognitive and physical impairment, which can be improved by hyperbaric oxygen therapy. Benefits of HBOT treatments on those suffering from cerebral palsy include:
Improving areas of the brain affected by Cerebral Palsy
Helping in the regeneration of brain tissue
Reduction of spasticity
Improving gross and fine motor skills
Improving speech, vision, and hearing
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy can aid in managing multiple sclerosis, a disease of the central nervous system.
Benefits of HBOT treatments for patients suffering multiple sclerosis include:
Reduced over-activity of immune system
Increased myelin repair
Improvements in ataxia
Relief from hand and finger numbness
Lessened weakness and dizziness
After contracting Lyme Disease – which is transmitted by ticks – hyperbaric oxygen therapy treatment can be highly beneficial, relieving symptoms, reducing pain, and increasing energy.
These treatments can even stave off complications like depression and other side effects of the disease.
Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
After a traumatic brain injury has occurred, a large area of the brain may become dormant. This is due to an extreme lack of oxygen due to reduced blood flow. TBI can also cause swelling of the brain tissue.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy treatments for traumatic brain injuries are believed to increase blood flow and can therefore increase oxygen to the brain, decrease swelling, revive dormant cells, and increase the potential of recovery.
