1 out of every 10 veterans back from combat in Iraq report serious mental health issues...
According to a recent Scientific American report, veterans of war have been known to suffer from cases of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression and traumatic brain injury in addition to any physical wounds. A new study of thousands of U.S. Army soldiers returning from combat duty in Iraq found up to 31 percent reported symptoms of PTSD or depression as long as a year after returning from the battlefield.
And TBI is not just a "Military" caused condition...
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is defined as a blow or jolt to the head or a penetrating head injury that disrupts the function of the brain. Not all blows or jolts to the head result in a TBI. The severity of such an injury may range from "mild," i.e., a brief change in mental status or consciousness to "severe," i.e., an extended period of unconsciousness or amnesia after the injury. A TBI can result in short or long-term problems with independent function. Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a serious public health issue for Americans.
Each year, TBI contributes to a substantial number of deaths and cases of permanent disability. A TBI is caused by a bump, blow or jolt to the head or a penetrating head injury that disrupts the normal function of the brain. The severity of a TBI may range from "mild" to "severe".
An estimated 1.7 million TBI-related deaths, hospitalizations, and emergency department visits occur in the U.S. each year. Nearly 80% of these individuals are treated and released from an emergency department. TBI is a contributing factor to a third (30.5%) of all injury-related deaths in the United States, or about 52,000 deaths annually.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) has been garnering more and more attention in the last few years. The reason is simple; HBOT is proving to be an incredibly safe and effective treatment for a wide range of conditions such as autism, stroke, Multiple Sclerosis, serious burns, Cerebral Palsy, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, migraines, Parkinson’s to name just a few.
In fact, currently there are approximately 66 different medical conditions where HBOT is being used for treatment. And one of the most serious conditions is showing some of the most significant results: TBI (traumatic brain injury).
The results of HBOT treatment for TBI has become so compelling that beginning in January 2012, Ft. Carson was one of five military bases participating in an 18 month study of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for TBI soldiers returning from Iraq and Afghanistan who have suffered a TBI injury. It is a tremendously important study that is being conducted under strict scientific guidelines. I believe the results will open the floodgates to widespread HBOT use by validating this therapy as a truly effective treatment option.

Corporate Sponsorship Program...
We’d like to give something back to our Ft. Carson soldiers who have sacrificed so much for us. So we’re introducing our SOS (Save Our Soldiers) corporate program. Here’s how it works;
