Advanced Concussion & TBI Care with HBOT

Combating Concussions and Traumatic Brain Injury With HBOT

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a nondegenerative, non-congenital insult to the brain from an external mechanical force, possibly leading to permanent or temporary impairment of cognitive, physical, and psychosocial functions, with an associated diminished or altered state of consciousness.

How Does HBOT Help Concussions & Traumatic Brain Injury

The Science Behind The Oxygen & Pressure

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a leading cause of health loss and disability worldwide. Globally, the annual incidence of TBI is variably estimated at 27 to 69 million.

All concussions are traumatic brain injuries with varying degrees of severity. According to the CDC, 138 people are affected by TBI every day. The leading causes of TBI include falls, blunt trauma related accidents, vehicle related injuries, violent assaults, and blast injuries.

Hyperbaric therapy has been demonstrated to enhance the recovery from TBI and augment brain activity by reducing hypoxia and neuroinflammation, while increasing circulation in the brain.

It has been reported to synergistically enhance the effects of other therapies, including standard intensive rehabilitation, for TBI patients to help accelerate recovery.

Medical Research for HBOT & TBI

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) shows potential as a complementary treatment for concussions and traumatic brain injuries (TBI). While research is still ongoing, below are some promising findings and resources:

1. Brain Oxygenation and Metabolism:

HBOT significantly increases blood oxygen levels, reaching even deep brain tissues. This could theoretically improve oxygen delivery and metabolism in injured brain cells, potentially aiding in recovery.

 

2. Neuroinflammation and Edema:

TBI often triggers inflammation and swelling in the brain. HBOT’s anti-inflammatory properties might help reduce these responses, promoting healing and minimizing tissue damage.

 

3. Neuroplasticity and Recovery:

HBOT may stimulate the growth of new brain cells and connections, a process called neuroplasticity. This could aid in brain repair and functional recovery after TBI.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy FAQ

Answers to Frequently Asked Questions

From chronic illnesses and autoimmune conditions, to sleep disorders and plastic surgery recovery, our Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is designed to navigate a wide array of health challenges, guiding you towards optimal wellness through targeted, individualized strategies.

Generally, HBOT is considered safe when administered under the supervision of a qualified healthcare professional in a reputable facility. However, it’s essential to understand both the potential benefits and risks before undergoing treatment.

Here’s a breakdown of safety considerations:

Minimal side effects: Most people experience only mild, temporary side effects like ear pressure, fatigue, and sinus discomfort. These usually resolve quickly on their own or with simple measures.

Non-invasive and painless: The treatment itself is comfortable and does not involve needles or surgery.

No drug interactions: HBOT doesn’t interact with medications unless specifically noted by your doctor.

The number of sessions required depends on the condition and individual response. Typically, a treatment plan involving multiple sessions over several weeks is needed. Speak to our Hyperbaric Medical Doctor to get guidance on if Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is right for you and your condition, and what you can expect in each of your sessions.

At our Hyperbaric Therapy Wellness Center in Hollywood! We provide expertly administered hyperbaric treatments overseen by Dr. Safa Maklad, a hyperbaric certified physician. We are committed to upholding stringent hyperbaric safety protocols and ensure the highest standards of care.

The office offers 100% cotton robes to wear during your treatment. During your consultation, we will thoroughly discuss the list of approved and restricted items for the chamber.

It’s best to have a light meal several hours beforehand to avoid nausea. Avoid heavy meals and alcohol within 24 hours of your session.

Staying hydrated beforehand can help your body absorb oxygen more efficiently. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle through diet and exercise may also enhance treatment outcomes.

Some people experience increased energy and improved focus after a session. Others might feel tired or have slight muscle aches, which usually resolve within a day or two.

Treatment response varies depending on the condition being treated and individual factors. It’s crucial to follow our recommended treatment plan and discuss any noticeable changes or lack of progress after several sessions.
