Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy helps Veterans suffering from PTSD

Many veterans suffer from PTSD after returning from combat. At this time, treatments are limited and the long term consequences can be devastating for these individuals. Previous reports have demonstrated hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) to help induce neuroplasticity and improve the  clinical symptoms of veterans with treatment-resistant PTSD.

In this study, researchers assessed 22 veterans diagnosed with PTSD. These veterans then received a full course of hyperbaric oxygen therapy and were re-evaluated one or more years later. The follow up evaluations revealed improvements in a variety of clinical symptoms that can positively effect quality of life <view study>
