A testimony to Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment for Migraine Headaches brought on by a concussion now know as a mild Traumatic Brain Injury.
According to the Armed Forces Health Surveillance Center data, Chuck's was one of more than 250,000 cases of traumatic brain injury in the military between 2000 and 2012. An estimated 14 percent of American veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars suffer from PTSD.

"Marine Corps Lt. Col. (ret.) Alan Burghard, Bronze Star and Purple Heart recipient and a technical advisor for the CBS television program “NCIS: Los Angeles”, attributes his TBI maximum medical improvement to HBOT.
In Iraq in 2004, the convoy in which Burghard was traveling was hit by insurgents who detonated an artillery shell. He wasn’t hit by shrapnel but “the shock wave kind of banged me up against the door” and he was knocked out.
It sheared a circular canal, part of the vestibular system of the brain, giving Burghard migraine headaches. “That still took a couple years to diagnose,” he said...
“I filled out a ream of paperwork to be a ‘human test subject,’” Burghard said. In early 2010, he spent six weeks in New Orleans receiving treatment at no cost to him. Therapy lasted an hour at a time, with two sessions per day, 40 hours total. Burghard stayed on his medicine during treatment and “ended it my last day.”
As the result of the HBOT, Burghard’s sleep and cognitive abilities improved and he gained back his 20 IQ points.
For those who suffer with the fog and depression of TBI/PTSD, you should know how tremendously important the effective gains from Hyperbaric Oxygen treatment are.. For the family members of those who suffer with this type of head injury, the smiles and happiness from my wife and kids are testimony enough to know how much this treatment has given me back my life. God Bless!!
We decided to take a chance, and trust in Dr. Harch and HBOT, and in return--Tim has been given his life back. There is no greater gift.
Tim was in Iraq and was exposed to multiple IED explosions from Jan 08 through May 08. During January, one of the explosions threw him into the driver's lap of the vehicle he was riding in. There was a second significant explosion at the end of March. The vehicle in front of him was hit with a catastrophic explosion, eventually killing all in the vehicle. Tim was close enough to this explosion that he felt the concussion waves, saw stars, became disoriented, and lost a large portion of time following the explosion.
Paul Harch, MD was one of the first physician in North America to treat a cerebral palsy child with Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) and could very well have been the first to also treat an autistic child. This news story from New Orleans ABC Channel 26 documents Dr Harch’s patient who was treated in 1996. The pediatric patient medically improves from no eye contact and no walking--to walking and engaging and appropriate communication skills.
