Did you know that oxygen is the number one nutritional requirement for the body? It’s true. In fact, there are over 8,000 different processes in the body that require oxygen. It is so important that the average person consumes about 6 pounds of oxygen each day! Knowing this, it’s no wonder that oxygen can be used to for certain medical issues. If your child suffers from a sports injury, brain trauma, auto accident injury, and even Lyme disease, Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for kids can help.


What is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for Kids?

Research has established Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy as a standard of care for concussions, traumatic brain injuries, and other medical conditions. This advanced therapy gives the brain the oxygen it needs to heal itself via the use of a Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Chamber. The air pressure inside the chamber is increased three times higher than normal air pressure, allowing the lungs to gather more oxygen than possible during normal breathing. The blood carries the oxygen throughout your body to fight bacteria and release stem cells and growth factors that promote healing. After a few visits, our patients report that the confusion, short term memory, and mental “fog” often associated with brain injuries is significantly decreased.    

Our Joplin, MO chiropractor treats concussions and traumatic brain injuries successfully in a shorter amount of time with Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy. We have seen much success in resolving many of the patient’s symptoms with this advanced therapy. Dr. Skaggs indicates that recovery from a traumatic brain injury must include physical therapy, occupational therapy, and language therapy coupled with hyperbaric oxygen therapy for the best success.
