Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)/Post Concussion Syndrome
TBIs occur when brain tissue is bruised after it impacts the skull due to a blow or jolt to the head. This causes an inflammatory response and swelling of the tissue as the brain responds to injury. Symptoms typically include headache, nausea/vomiting, fatigue, problems with speech, and dizziness.
HBOT can dramatically improve symptoms of chronic TBI months, or even years, after the original head injury. Current studies focus on the effectiveness of HBOT in improving brain function and quality of life. One study in particular found that HBOT can lead to neuroplasticity, which can repair chronically impaired brain functions and improve quality of life in mild TBI with post-concussive syndrome at late chronic stage.
