Treatments for mild Traumatic Brain Injuries (mTBI’s) and Persistent Post-Concussion Syndrome (PPCS) have focused on alleviating symptoms and disabilities. Researchers have seen improvements with patients who have had brain injuries due to stroke and other etiologies treated with Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT). Currently, using HBOT for treating mTBI’s and PPCS is still new although initial research examining this treatment has shown improvements in various areas of the patient's life. So far there has been no definitive treatment parameters determined and future research is indicated to determine this. The potential benefits of treating patients with mTBI’s and PPCS with HBOT could be lifechanging for them.
