Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for Cerebral Palsy

Cerebral Palsy (CP) affects 1 in 303 children in the U.S. (8,000 new cases every year) making it the most devastating motor disability in childhood. This tragic disorder affects movement, posture and other motor skills and may result in the need for life-long care. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) has been shown, in some studies, to alleviate the effects of CP. Many forms of CP result from lack of oxygen to the brain. The affected brain tissue can be recovered or improved by introducing increased levels of oxygen. HBOT has been shown to be a promising treatment with multiple studies reporting improvements with its application. Studies have demonstrated the benefits of HBOT for CP with the following:

Enhances Neurological Repair & Regeneration

  • Reduces the Effects of Low Oxygen Levels on the Neonatal Brain
  • Promotes the Creation of New Brain Cells
  • Moderates Mitochondrial Disorders
  • Enhances Stem Cell Growth & Mobilization
  • Increases Brain Tissue Healing
  • Escalates the Creation of New Brain Connections

Improves Overall Function

  • Advances Cognitive Function
  • Improves Gros/Fine Motor Skills
  • Enhances Speech & Language
  • Improves Memory & Concentration
  • Alleviates Spasticity
