Hyperbaric oxygen therapy helps PTSD symptoms in Veterans

Updated: Sep 27

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) affects approximately 3.5 percent of U.S. adults every year, and an estimated one in 11 people will be diagnosed with PTSD in their lifetime. This number being much higher in military veterans and can have long lasting effects, impacting their quality of life. This study took 35 veterans diagnosed with long-standing PTSD symptoms (greater than 4 years) though a 3 month intensive hyperbaric protocol involving 60 sessions at 2.0 ATA. The results showed a dramatic reduction in PTSD symptoms. Brain imaging thought f-MRI confirmed these improvements following the 3 month course of hyperbaric oxygen therapy
