Brain Injuries & Strokes

A great solution

We provide only the best hyperbaric oxygen therapy for our patients. This kind of therapy involves breathing pure oxygen in a pressurized room or tube. This is a trusted treatment for a variety of health issues and concerns, like brain injuries and strokes. Traumatic brain injury occurs by forces which disrupt the brain tissue. When cells in the brain die, from trauma or simple lack of oxygen, blood plasma leaks out and surrounds the brain tissue. This causes swelling and reduces blood flow even further. Now, these cells become dormant since they are unable to function properly without the necessary amount of oxygen.

These cells within the damaged area are commonly known as “idling neurons" neither dead nor fully functioning. HBOT is used to jump start them. With HBOT, oxygen is increased dramatically and carried in the blood plasma. This creates the ability to heal the damaged capillary walls, while preventing more plasma to leak. Once swelling decreases, blood flow is restored allowing for proper cell function
