Treat TBI and Concussions with Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) results from an impact to the head that injures the brain. It can happen in sports, riding a bike, tripping and falling, a car accident or assault. Any time the skull is impacted with a blunt force, the brain can be injured.
Mild concussions and TBI can cause temporary symptoms such as short-term loss of consciousness, feeling dazed or confused, headache, nausea, vomiting, problems with speech, drowsiness or loss of balance. More-serious traumatic brain injury can result in brain bruising, bleeding and other long term, serious damage.
Symptoms of TBI can linger and affect a person’s relationships, work productivity, sleep and behaviors, as well as their outlook on life and overall well being.
It’s important not to ignore a TBI and to seek professional care. Healing from a TBI requires patience with rest, and can include supplemental support therapies from an integrative medical and holistic approach.
Dr. Payson Flattery specializes in caring for TBI patients by offering Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) to aid in brain cell regeneration as it increases blood flow to underactive areas of the brain. HBOT has been seen to dramatically increase cognition and reverse some brain cell damage.
If you’ve had a traumatic brain injury, contact Dr. Flattery for a consultation and schedule your first HBOT treatment.
