Jackson, Tenn. (PRWEB) August 30, 2014
After offering hyperbaric oxygen therapy treatments to people around the country for the past several years, Dr. Roy Schmidt and the staff at the Tennessee Hyperbaric Center have announced a scholarship program for veterans who have been diagnosed with PTSD. This announcement follows a meeting held this summer to discuss veterans’ needs (http://www.prweb.com/releases/2014/06/prweb11954058.htm).
In recent years, reporters have shed light on the large number of veterans who are suffering from the effects of traumatic brain injury (TBI) and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and their need for effective treatment. Many stories have focused on the use of hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) to provide a better quality of life, free of the side effects of black-label drugs.
Veterans may apply for the scholarship online at http://www.hyperbaricoxygentherapies.com/application-for-veteran-hbot-scholarship-2/. Any veteran who has been diagnosed with PTSD is eligible, and the scholarship will offset the cost of the treatment.
HBOT is the only non-hormonal treatment approved by the FDA for biologically repairing and regenerating human tissue. In association with the Pain Specialist Center, the Tennessee Hyperbaric Center offers treatments for off-label use that have shown promising results for diseases and health issues that research suggests it may benefit.
Patients utilizing hyperbaric oxygen therapy enter a chamber where they breathe 100% oxygen under pressure. This process drives oxygen into cells, reviving them or helping them function. An additional effect of the increased oxygen is growth of new blood vessels and long-lasting therapeutic benefits. The Tennessee Hyperbaric Center uses 100% medical grade oxygen, and its six-person chamber has been certified by the State of Tennessee. Also, the THC chamber is FDA 510(k) cleared.
