Hyperbaric oxygen therapy treatment for veterans: Everything you need to know

Brain Injury, Veteran Care | Published: February 10th 2020, 03:57PM

Learn how HBOT can help veterans recover from debilitating brain injuries

 

Brain injury is a life-changing consequence for many veterans as a result of their service.

Often known as the “invisible wounds of war”, brain injuries comprise 22% of all combat casualties from the recent conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan.[1] They can include traumatic brain injury (TBI), post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), concussion, and stroke.

 

How hyperbaric oxygen therapy treatment for veterans can help

There are 7 states in the United States that approve hyperbaric oxygen therapy for veterans with brain injury—including Florida.

As well as being an approved Non-VA Care Provider for 14 covered conditions, we’re also proud to be trusted by these organizations to help veterans heal.

 

TreatNOW Coalition

TreatNOW’s mission is to ensure that over 800,000 Iraq and Afghanistan brain injured veterans and active duty service members, along with all citizens, get insured access to hyperbaric oxygen therapy and other proven alternative medical treatments for their invisible wounds.

We’re proud to be listed on the TreatNOW Coalition website for veterans seeking HBOT treatment!

“This is an especially incredible achievement for us, as many of the other listed facilities are pioneers in the field of HBOT,” said Erika Jordan, hyperbaric director and founder of Hyperbaric Healing Treatment Center. “It’s a great honor to be recognized as a leading provider of hyperbaric oxygen therapy treatment for veterans in Florida.”

 

The 22 Project

The 22 Project supports underserved war veterans who have traumatic brain injuries and are at risk for depression and/or suicide. In collaboration with physicians, therapists, and health care workers, The 22 Project provides advanced medical treatments to reduce a veteran’s risk of depression and/or suicide, including care and evaluation by highly trained board certified physicians, hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT), and essential brain supplements and superfoods, all at no cost to the veteran. 

You can learn more about The 22 Project here.

This amazing non-profit organization recently referred a veteran to us for treatment. The patient was prescribed 40 HBOT sessions: 34 of these were covered by The 22 Project, and we donated the remaining 6 sessions pro bono. The patient recently finished his treatment with us, and we’re honored to have supported him on his healing journey!

 

The HOW Foundation

The HOW (Help Our Wounded) Foundation of South Florida’s mission is to improve the quality of life for individuals, families, and communities by advocating for and providing access to hyperbaric oxygen therapy. Learn more here.

The HOW Foundation also recently sent us a veteran for hyperbaric oxygen therapy. This great organization was able to successfully cover the treatments, so the patient was able to receive hyperbaric oxygen therapy at no cost to them.
