Motor Vehicle Accident

motor vehicle accidentApproximately 2.3 million adult drivers and passengers are treated in emergency rooms each year due to a motor vehicle accident. Common injuries include lacerations, broken bones, spine, back, and neck injuries, and also concussion and traumatic brain injuries (TBI). Unfortunately, treatment for head injury (unless very severe) often comes second to treating things such as cuts and lacerations. Therefore, it’s easy to dismiss a head injury until the symptoms begin to arise.

While hyperbaric oxygen therapy can be used to treat some of the symptoms of head injury, it can also significantly improve circulation, reduce inflammation, and promote faster healing for all affected tissues. A comprehensive neurological and internal medicine assessment is necessary to consider if and how hyperbaric oxygen therapy will be beneficial for a patient who has been affected by a motor vehicle accident.
