Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for Treating Concussions
Concussions, often from sports injuries, and with symptoms including headaches, brain fog, inability to focus, fatigue, sensitivity to light and sound, and nausea, can become traumatic brain injury (TBI), decreasing a person’s ability to live a fruitful, enjoyable and productive life, if not properly treated. The Nirvana Hyperbaric Institute, in Mooresville, North Carolina, provides Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT), a highly potent, anti-inflammatory, extremely safe and effective treatment which can successfully resolve concussions and prevent them from becoming a TBI.
A hard blow to the brain, suspended in cerebrospinal fluid, can cause swelling and inflammation. Since the pressure is forced inward, blood supply and oxygen are cut off as the swelling increases. If the brain cells are deprived of oxygen for too long, they start to die causing permanent brain damage or TBI. HBOT can quickly reduce the swelling, and concurrently, provides much needed oxygen to the brain cells to keep them alive until the swelling has ended.
HBOT should be started as soon as possible after a concussion, especially within the first 10 days. If this is followed, the average number of treatments needed to completely resolve the injury is four.
The practice has successfully treated 30-plus patients. If treatments are continued until all symptoms are resolved, the success rate in preventing long-term brain injury is 100 percent.
