Exciting news: Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy now available at our clinic on Mercer Island!
Did you know that Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is the leading cause of death and disability in the US? Approximately 70-90% of the TBI cases are classified as mild, and up to 25% of them will not recover and will suffer chronic neurocognitive impairments. The main pathology in these cases involves diffuse brain injuries, which are hard to detect by anatomical imaging yet are noticeable in metabolic imaging. A study (link below) tested the effectiveness of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) in improving brain function and quality of life in mTBI patients suffering chronic neurocognitive impairments. The findings? “HBOT can induce neuroplasticity leading to repair of chronically impaired brain functions and improved quality of life in mTBI patients with prolonged PCS at late chronic stage.”Please make an appointment today to begin this life-changing therapy. Also beneficial for wound healing, and improvement of inflammatory health conditions. HBOT Session Bundles and our unlimited visit Wellness For Life concierge plan is available to make this an affordable therapy for you or your loved one. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3829860/
