Dr. Skaggs Contributes to Book on Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Written By Skaggs Chiropractic on May 6, 2020

Leading the Way in HBOT Treatment for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder in JoplinChiropractic physician, Dr. Steven Skaggs, has conducted extensive research on hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) over his 26-year career. 

HBOT stimulates your body’s natural healing ability by creating an oxygen-rich environment. Unlike traditional oxygen therapy, HBOT submerges your entire body in a comfortable, low-pressure oxygen chamber. 

You can now read some of Dr. Skaggs’s research and expertise in a new in-depth book on the innovative therapy. 

Dr. Skaggs Contributes to Dr. William S. Maxfield’s Latest Book on Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Dr. Skaggs contributed to chapter 7 of Dr. William S. Maxfield MD’s latest book, The Oxygen Cure: A Complete Guide to Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, which covers treating traumatic brain injuries (TBIs).

In the book, Dr. Skaggs documents the story of his son, Kayle, who suffered a TBI and his remarkable recovery process through HBOT. 

An estimated 30 to 40 million working-age Americans live with untreated TBIs which account for over 2.5 million emergency visits each year, according to the CDC. 

Unfortunately, many non-life-threatening cases of TBI go untreated, leaving survivors with disastrous physical and mental consequences such as lost income, aggression, memory loss, seizures, and poor motor control. 

Despite their prevalence, modern medicine doesn’t offer much in the way of conventional treatment for TBIs. Dr. Skaggs has made it his mission to provide comprehensive and effective treatment for patients through non-invasive HBOT.
