Concussion & Traumatic Brain Injuries 

Concussions are a type of traumatic brain injury (TBIs). They are often caused by some type of external force, including wounds that penetrate the skull and closed-head injuries.

Concussions can have varying degrees of severity, but all are considered serious injuries that should be evaluated by a medical professional. Professional and adolescent athletes, particularly those involved in contact sports, tend to be more at risk. TBIs are also the signature wound of veterans returning home from Iraq and Afghanistan. However, anyone could suffer a concussion: sports injuries, car and motorcycle accidents, and falls all could result in brain trauma. 

Symptoms—emotional, physical and cognitive—may include headache, dizziness, memory loss, and personality changes. They can be short-lived or last for months or even years without resolving.

The use of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) to treat concussions and traumatic brain injuries in patients aims to relieve symptoms and accelerate recovery by promoting damaged tissue repair and angiogenesis, or blood vessel growth.


HBOT for Concussion and Traumatic Brain Injuries

 HBOT aids in the treatment of concussion and traumatic brain injuries in the following ways: 

  • Facilitates accelerated recovery & potential neurologic tissue regeneration
  • Reduces pain
  • Promotes healing
  • Creates new blood vessels
  • Stimulates stem cell mobilization
  • May reduce cognitive impairment
