Hyperbaric and TBI (traumatic brain injury)

I ran across another great article that explains how Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) can help with Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI).  The article and the research were published in the Science News. Here’s the Summary,,,

“Every year, nearly two million people in the United States suffer traumatic brain injury (TBI), the leading cause of brain damage and permanent disabilities that include motor dysfunction, psychological disorders, and memory loss. Now research has proven that, using hyperbaric oxygen therapy, it is possible to repair brains and improve the quality of life for TBI victims, even years after the occurrence of the injury.”

The article goes on to explain the trial that was done using two groups of folks with TBIs.  One was treated with HBOT and on was not.  The group receiving HBOT showed marked improvement.

You can read the full article at  https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2013/11/131118132915.htm.

Performance and Pre-Concussion Screening

Wisner’s is now offering Performance and Pre-Concussion Examinations:

“The American Journal of Sports Medicine estimates that 1 in 5 high school athletes experience concussions and 33% of these occur at practice,” and an astounding “69% of high school athletes played despite their symptoms and 40% reported that their coaches didn’t even know about their injury.” Unfortunately, these kids are more likely to have another incident. This is called “Second Impact Syndrome” and can lead to permanent injury, or even, death.

Recommendations from the 4th International Consensus Statement on Concusssion suggest the establishment of a balance baseline for every player. Establishing an individualized baseline for each player, with the simple Sway test, provides an objective assessment for testing on the sideline and recovery.

During a Performance and Pre-Concussion Screening, a baseline for each athlete is is established using the Sway Medical Device. The intial screening takes about 15 minutes. When, or if, a concussion occurs during the playing season, an athlete is then re-evaluated using those baselines to help in the recommendations for treatment.

This is a tool that gives doctors, parents, and coaches, more information on an athletes recovery and ability to perform. Until now, a practitioner had no way to objectively assess an athletes balance or reaction times. The Sway system gives athletes an objective baseline so that decisions on treatment and return to play can be made after a TBI (traumatic brain injury).”

Give the office a call to schedule your athletes exam.

Concussions in the news

Another great article that was published by the magazine Time, by Alice Park.  ”How Concussions can lead to poor grades.”

Here is the just of it….

“In a study published in the journal Pediatrics, Danielle Ransom, a postdoctoral fellow in neuropsychology, and her colleagues found that children who had concussions may experience more problems concentrating, keeping up and paying attention in school. The symptoms are worse for students who have recently been injured, but remained significant even for those who had recovered.”

Here’s the link to read the whole article:  time.com/3852458/how-concussions-affect-school-grades/

HBOT Therapy and Concussions

I just ran across a great article on concussions and how to treat them.  It reminded me of a young athlete, I’ll call him “Sam,” that we treated a couple of years ago.  He was a football player who had three concussions in one year! Sam was having migraines, problems concentrating and articulating what he was thinking.  He saw a neurologist and had a SPECT scan that showed moderate brain damage in the temporal lobe.  He started on a protocol of 40 treatments of HBOT (hyperbaric oxygen therapy) and brain healing, anti-oxident supplements.

Within the first month of treatment, he noticed that he “could explain things better,” and he was “no longer having problems processing information.”  After the treatments, he re-took his SATs (had taken them prior to starting his brain healing treatments) and scored 200+ points higher without any other prep class or studying.  The higher score made the difference of his being accepted to the college that he really wanted to attend.

For more information on his story or on HBOT therapy, give the office a call.

And you can read the whole article on brain healing at this link, http://wiinnebago.com/press-releases/treatment-for-concussion-is-available-all-over-the-usa-if-you-know-where-to-look/.

Hope your having a great week!
