It is widely thought that once an area of the brain is damaged by stroke, nothing can restore function. However, there are areas of the brain which may be salvaged by hyperbaric oxygen therapy. HBOT has been proven to enhance the metabolism of “idling nerve cells” and surrounding areas of salvageable brain tissue.
HBOT treatment stimulates blood flow, metabolism, and tissue growth in people with brain injuries. For greater restoration, hyperbaric treatments reawaken dormant but living cells surrounding the injured area.
