Traumatic Brain Injury

Sometimes Mild Traumatic Brain Injury can mean major problems. 

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) can help.

By now many of us recognize that mTBI stands for mild traumatic brain injury. As few as two years ago, we may not have known that. Awareness has heightened about mTBI due to the NFL and the injuries our warriors are sustaining on the battlefield and in training. However, mTBI effects more than 1 million people every year, not just elite athletes and our military. It effects our children playing sports, people in minor and major car accidents, adult athletes, workers from multiple industries… and the list goes on.

Below are articles, studies and testimonials regarding mTBI and Persistent Post Concussion Syndrome using hyperbaric oxygen therapy as part of a treatment plan.
