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

Late Treatment of Severe Brain Injury with Hyperbaric Oxygenation
Controlled studies have demonstrated safety and efficacy of hyperbaric oxygenation therapy (HBOT) in the treatment of anoxic, traumatic, ischemic, or thrombotic brain injury…
Hyperbaric Oxygen in the Treatment of Patients with Cerebral Stroke, Brain Trauma, and Neurologic Disease
Hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) therapy has been used to treat patients with numerous disorders, including stroke. This treatment has been shown to decrease cerebral edema, normalize water content in the brain, decrease the severity of brain infarction, and maintain blood-brain barrier integrity.
Results of a Prospective Randomised Trial for Treatment of Severely Brain-Injured Patients with Hyperbaric Oxygen
The authors enrolled 168 patients with closed-head trauma into a prospective trial to evaluate the effect of hyperbaric oxygen in the treatment of brain injury.
