Concussion Treatment for Kids and Young Adults: Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Concussions affect the way the brain works. After head injury, kids and young adults may have difficulty in school, socially, playing sports, or regulating emotions. This is of greater importance because the brain is very plastic (not hard-wired) and developing quickly when we’re young. 

I believe it’s important to incorporate treatments quickly for younger individuals so that we can ensure their brains develop appropriately, ensuring a healthier future.

Kids and young adults often experience concussions from sports, but also can occur with car or bike accidents, falls, rough play, or anything that results in head injury.

Symptoms can sometimes be more subtle in kids as they don’t understand how to explain how they might be feeling. Headaches, low motivation, fatigue, difficulty with school work, difficulty reading, eye tracking issues, blurry vision, focusing issues, dizziness, dizziness when standing, brain fog, fatigue, constipation, mood changes, enlarged pupil, and changes in social patterns can all be indicators.

Our Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy doctors are highly trained Functional Neurologists who specialize in concussion/mild traumatic brain injury and understand how to treat your child’s concussion.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is a safe, comfortable and powerful tool to treat concussions, enhancing neuroplasticity, reducing neuro-inflammation, promote circulation, and enhance oxygen delivery to the brain that expedite healing and reduce the possibility of post-concussion symptoms. These can also be paired through neuroplasticity treatments from our functional neurology practice that specialize in concussion rehabilitation to maximize results.

It’s not only the brain cells that are injured during a concussion, but more so the connections between them that carry signals that are disconnected. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy and Functional Neurology are designed to repair disrupted connections.

Dr. Aaron MacArthur is specially trained in the area of concussions with years of training, fellowships, and experience that have allowed him to uniquely diagnose and treat all the components of a concussion. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy has proven to be an incredible treatment that heals the symptoms of concussion at their source. If necessary, more treatment options are available within our complete health model of practitioners including functional neurologists, occupational therapists, and physical therapists.
