Stroke

Health & well-being

Oxygen Treatment may improve language, eye-contact, social interaction, irritability, or hyperactivity.

Research

Recovery after stroke correlates with non-active (stunned) brain regions, which may persist for years. The good news is that research suggests HBOT can activate neuroplasticity in damaged regions of the brain long after that damage has occurred. Numerous studies have demonstrated the efficacy of HBOT in treating the effects of brain injury including Research 1, Research 2 and Research 3. You can more research papers by following this link…

Case Study

One 61 year old woman who could not bathe, dress or climb stairs without help after suffering a stroke a year earlier was able to not only bathe and dress on her own, but also was able to shop and cook independently.

“There is…convincing evidence that hyperbaric treatments provide clear benefits in diseases such as various neurological disorders and stroke.”
