Medical/Hyberbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) and Other Cutting-Edge Medical Treatments
HBOT is recognized treatment for decompression sickness (the "bends") and certain wound management; however, we have seen this treatment also improve the quality of life for SOF warriors suffering the often devastating effects of TBI, PTS, chronic pain, depression, nerve damage, and other ailments. Treatment protocol is typically forty, one-hour sessions ("dives") with 100% oxygen at up to 2.5 atmospheres. The cost for this regimen is $6,000-$8,000 for the series of forty dives with associated follow-up assessments, which is generally not covered by Department of Defense benefits or commercial insurance. SOC-F works with providers in Fayetteville, North Carolina, and Virginia Beach, Virginia, who are recognized for their expertise in providing HBOT treatment for these conditions. SOC-F also funds other effective, cutting-edge medical treatments of TBI and PTS, such as Magnetic eResonance Therapy.
