hyperbaric oxygen and Brain

Anyone heard about hyperbaric oxygen chambers for brain injuries or know anyone who has tried it? Have paryalysis of the third cranial nerve and was curious about this as docs are out of options.
Thanks!

Re: hyperbaric oxygen and Brain

It looks pretty amazing. Medicare/Medicaid has approved it for about 13 different things, like burns, wounds, bone infections, gas poisoning etc... and they are reimbursing hosptials for it, but hospitals will only treat these conditions b/c they want to stay accreditied. There are stand alone hyperbaric facilities that wil treat many more things considered "off label" like autism, tramatic brain injury, cancer, stroke etc.....so just seeing if anyone has had experience. Some chiropractors have a"mild" chamber where the pressure isn't as strong and the oxygen not as concentrated as the other facilities. I think it is a matter of time before these are all over, but just looking for any current feedback.
