Hyperbaric therapy has been shown to:

Improve Overall Recovery

Improves Vision and Speech

Reduces Paralysis

Accelerates Gross/Fine Motor Skills Recovery

Increases Brain Tissue Recovery

Stimulates the Creation of Blood Vessels to Reclaim Damaged Brain Tissue

Promotes the Creation of New Brain Cells

Escalates the Creation of New Brain Connections

Alleviates Spasticity

Stroke is the fifth leading cause of death in the U.S. and has remained a leading cause of adult disability with 795,000 cases reported every year. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) has been shown to help prevent and treat stroke through a number of different mechanisms. HBOT can be used to precondition the brain by producing more circulatory pathways to potentially decrease the chance of stroke. Also, this has been shown to benefit post-stroke patients, as compromised blood flow to the affected area of the brain and its functionality are recoverable by introducing increased levels of oxygen.

Stroke Prevention with HBOT: 

  • Stimulates the Creation of New Blood Vessels

  • Decreases Oxidative Stress in the Brain

  • Promotes Optimal Blood Flow

  • Preconditions the Brain to Enable Neuroprotective Properties
