Hyperbaric Plus™ For Traumatic Brain Injury Treatment
The brain is one of the most powerful organs in the body, and while the skull protects it fiercely, it is one of the softest organs. Its soft nature leaves it susceptible to injury. One of the toughest injuries (or result of another injury) is called Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), in which the brain is severely damaged. There are many causes of TBI, some of which include an open or closed head injury, stroke, chemical or toxic injury, tumor, hypoxia, infection, and more.
LyfeWell Integrative HealthCare focuses on TBI treatment that seems impossible. Without using medication or surgery, LyfeWell provides healing with a proprietary treatment: Hyperbaric Plus™. Since TBI can be caused by such a variety of things, it is best surmised by noting that Hyperbaric Plus™ helps promote overall wellness and give the body what it needs to heal on its own.
Hyperbaric Plus™ Treatment For Traumatic Brain Injury
In many cases, the TBI can be treated with increased blood flow and oxygen to the brain. Whether the symptoms of TBI are mild or severe, patients see progress with E-HBOT TBI treatments because their bodies are given the opportunity to heal naturally. Hyperbaric Plus™ combines two well-known treatments: pulsed electromagnetic field therapy (PEMF) and hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT). There is plenty of research conducted about how each of these treatments can help heal TBI. In essence, PEMF enhances blood flow throughout the entire body, including the brain. Then, HBOT exposes the body to the oxygen it needs to heal. With optimized blood flow and an increase in oxygen, the body can reduce inflammation and provide cell regeneration in the brain.
What To Expect During Treatment
Hyperbaric Plus™ treatment is a proprietary treatment created here at LyfeWell that integrates PEMF and HBOT treatments into one. Each session is 90 minutes and begins with PEMF. Pulsed electromagnetic field therapy lasts for 20 minutes. During this time, there are small electric currents that pulse through the body; the patient rarely feels the currents, but sometimes it can feel like a tingling sensation. PEMF awakens the cells inside the body and helps them perform at their highest potential. The most notable effect is an increase in blood flow.
Once the body has increased circulation, HBOT begins. For the remainder of the session, the patient is exposed to three times as much oxygen as normal, which promotes cell regeneration, healing, and strengthening. For most of our life, we are exposed to oxygen that is laced with pollutants in the atmosphere. Hyperbaric Plus™ takes place inside an enclosed chamber where the pure oxygen stays concentrated and the body can reap all of the benefits.
While this enclosed chamber may sound claustrophobic, most patients find it quite relaxing. Inside the chamber is a comfortable chaise lounge, and many people bring along a pillow and blanket for a nap. Others bring along a smart device to provide entertainment. In order to ensure proper communication, all patients are given a two-way radio that connects them directly to the staff at all times during the treatment.
