A concussion, categorized as a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), is a form of brain trauma affecting the soft tissue of the brain. This injury initiates a detrimental “concussion cascade” that may result in severe and, at times, fatal consequences. The manifestation of this brain wound includes symptoms such as confusion, disorientation, loss of consciousness, and memory loss, often colloquially described as having one’s “bell rung.” While symptoms may subside over time in many cases, neglecting treatment for the brain injury can lead to enduring physiological and other repercussions, including an elevated risk of depression and suicide. The Veterans Administration has documented a persistent and alarming suicide rate among veterans, reaching up to 22 per day, labeling it as an “epidemic.”

Understanding the Concussion Cascade and its implications has been challenging, primarily due to the difficulty of detecting brain damage through routine imaging techniques such as X-rays, CT scans, and MRIs. Diagnosing concussions relies on identifying symptoms, with recovery assumed when these symptoms dissipate. While it is commonly stated that 80-90% of concussions self-heal, the remaining 20% with lingering symptoms pose a significant concern.

The Concussion Cascade encompasses various findings, including inflammation, diminished blood flow and oxygen supply to brain cells, reduced nutrients and enzymes crucial for wound healing, microscopic physical damage to brain matter not visible on traditional scans, oxygen deprivation (hypoxia), cell inactivation and death, and the accumulation of waste in the brain that may lead to chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) in certain cases.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is a treatment involving the inhalation of 100% oxygen in a pressurized chamber to elevate oxygen levels in blood plasma/fluid. Backed by a century of clinical research, HBOT has demonstrated its efficacy in accelerating the natural healing process through neurogenesis (generation of new brain cells from stem cells), angiogenesis (formation of new blood vessels in the brain), pain reduction, and alleviation of brain inflammation.
