The cutting edge research is happening at the Joe Namath Neurological Research Center on the campus of Jupiter Medical Center.
Doctors are working on a clinical study that explores the effectiveness of hyperbaric oxygen therapy as a treatment for traumatic brain injuries.
“When somebody has a brain injury, there’s an area around the badly injured cells that are dormant or asleep, it kind of wakes the cells up and gets them to start working again, says Dr. Barry Miskin, who is leading the study.
He hopes to prove hyperbaric oxygen therapy can improve the symptoms of traumatic brain injuries by increasing blood flow in the brain. Patients must undergo treatment five times a week. Read entire article
Hyperbaric Healing Institute provides state-of-the-art hyperbaric oxygen therapy. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is a medical procedure that involves the patient being placed in a completely enclosed chamber in which the atmosphere is controlled and the patient is able to breathe pure 100 percent oxygen. This level exceeds atmospheric pressure. The hyperbaric process places oxygen in places within the body at a cellular level, and also where the circulation might be blocked. HBOT therapy is not painful and it is not an invasive procedure. HBOT therapy is used in conjunction with other medical treatments as part of a patient’s treatment plan.
