Our goal is to provide information in an unhurried environment, where individuals can meet and ask questions. One great opportunity that we hope comes from these meetings is creating a support network for those who struggle with similar health conditions.
Jackson, Tenn. (PRWEB) December 31, 2011
Individuals can discuss health conditions and learn more about a variety of treatment options, including hyperbaric oxygen therapy, on the third Thursday of each month at 6 p.m. The Pain Specialist Center and Tennessee Hyperbaric Center, operated by Medical Director Dr. Roy Schmidt at 15 Stonebridge in Jackson, Tenn., are hosting these free seminars. Topics will range from traumatic brain injury to fibromyalgia to diabetes/peripheral neuropathy.
A variety of other modalities, including blocks and stimulators, are offered by the Pain Specialist Center. These are used in treating some headaches, neuropathic pain syndromes and pain of the back, arm, leg, muscular skeleton system and abdomen.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is the only non-hormonal treatment approved by the FDA for biologically repairing and regenerating human tissue. Its off-label use may help a variety of conditions, including closed head injury/concussion, stroke, cerebral palsy, autism, Lyme disease, peripheral neuropathy syndromes/diabetes, reflex sympathetic dystrophy/complex regional pain syndrome, migraine headaches and others.
Schmidt, Kristi Hogg, patient liaison, and Dian Brown, staff member, will provide videos and literature, lead discussions, answer questions and guide tours at the seminars. Schmidt explained, “Our goal is to provide information in an unhurried environment, where individuals can meet and ask questions. One great opportunity that we hope comes from these meetings is creating a support network for those who struggle with similar health conditions.”
A board certified anesthesiologist, Schmidt has practiced anesthesia and pain management in the Jackson area for two decades. The Tennessee Hyperbaric Center’s six-person chamber has been certified by the State of Tennessee and is FDA 510(k)-cleared. In the chamber patients breathe 100% medical-grade oxygen under pressure. This process drives oxygen into cells, reviving them or helping them function. An additional effect is growth of new blood vessels and long-lasting therapeutic benefits.
