Sports Injuries

Each year, emergency rooms treat over 173,000 sports-related concussions in patients from birth to 19 years old. In the last ten years, these sports injuries have increased by 60%. Football and girl’s soccer are the largest contributors to head injury. Sports concussions often occur due to a sudden bump, blow, or jolt to the head, and can change an athlete’s behavior, thinking, or physical functioning. Some of the most common symptoms include headaches, nausea, insomnia, confusion, and feeling “dazed”. Unfortunately, symptoms may not appear right away, but they can potentially last for weeks or months if not proactively treated.

Hyperbaric oxygen has been used to treat the most severe forms of head injury, and it has shown to alleviate some of the more stubborn symptoms of concussion and TBI, such as insomnia. A comprehensive neurological and internal medicine assessment is necessary to consider if and how hyperbaric oxygen therapy should be used for an athlete with a concussion.
