About Concussion and TBI

A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury (TBI) caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head that can change the way the brain normally works. Concussions can also occur from a fall or a blow to the body that causes the head and brain to move quickly back and forth. Head injury can be associated with concussions in sports, military combat, whiplash, and vehicular accidents. These injuries result in varying degrees of impaired brain function which may not seem obvious but can be detected by a trained expert. Some imaging techniques, such as regular MRI, are rarely able to show the full extent of the injury. A comprehensive neurological and internal medicine assessment with supportive imaging studies is necessary to determine whether hyperbaric oxygen therapy should be used for a patient with head injury.

Patients with TBI often have few options for rehabilitation. However, hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a popular alternative treatment that can alleviate symptoms with minimal risk. The combination of traditional and emerging treatment methods has the potential to provide a better prognosis for all forms of TBI.

Using Oxygen to Treat Concussions

Doctors are testing whether hyperbaric oxygen treatments can help traumatic brain injuries heal more quickly.
