Memorial Day 2014 Free Hyperbaric Treatment for Vets With Traumatic Brain Injury

This Memorial Day Hyperbaric Medical Solutions – with state-of-the-art facilities in Woodbury and Medford, New York – is proud to continue offering free hyperbaric care to brain-injured veterans. The treatment, which involves a patient breathing 100% pure oxygen within a pressurized chamber helps super-oxygenate the plasma, accelerating healing.

Memorial Day 2014

A growing number of veterans with traumatic brain injury (TBI) are turning to HBOT because the traditional psychiatric medications they are usually given often do not heal the brain, have terrible side effects, and can produce suicidal thoughts. Each day some 22, or more, veterans take their own lives.

HBOT has been shown to be so effective that the state of Oklahoma has just passed a law providing free HBOT to vets with TBI statewide.  There are grassroots movements in Texas, Kentucky, Indiana and other states to follow Oklahoma’s lead.

Hyperbaric Medical Solutions has been offering free HBOT for injured military veterans since its inception in 2011.  Medical Director Dr. Henry Prince reports that nearly all of the brain-injured veterans treated at our facilities have experienced improvement. Dr. Prince’s own son, Jesse, a West Point grad, returned from Iraq with PTSD and was only able to return to his normal life after treatments with hyperbaric oxygen.

We hope, on this Memorial Day, to be able to help more veterans find relief from TBI and PTSD, the signature injuries of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.  We believe hundreds of thousands of afflicted veterans nationwide could benefit from this treatment, and we want to do our part to help right here at Hyperbaric Medical Solutions.
