Healing Military Traumatic Brain Injuries

A team working with Healing Arizona Veterans will soon be introducing the Arizona Veterans Traumatic Brain Injury Treatment and Recovery Act, with the goal to establish Patriot Clinics in Arizona, where military veterans can be evaluated and treated with hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) to heal their brain injury.

“Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is the signature injury of the military conflicts of this era. TBI has often been misdiagnosed as complicated post-traumatic stress disorder,” says Dr. Carol Henricks, a neurologist specializing in the use of HBOT to heal TBI patients. “Diagnosis and treatment issues have been challenging, but the future has arrived.”

The first Patriot Clinic was started in Oklahoma City after the Oklahoma governor signed a bill into law in June 2014. Currently, there are freestanding clinics around the country that are providing treatment for veterans, but some veterans are opting to be treated at HBOT treatment centers in Israel. Additional information is available in the fall issue of Arizona Veterans Magazine.

For more information, call 520-229-2122 or visit HealingArizonaVeterans.org or NorthStarHBOT.com. See ad, page 17.
