Our Cerebral Palsy Journey
It is amazing how much our world changed when our first child was born 3 months premature and weighed a little over 2 pounds. She was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy-Spastic Diplegia at age 1. After the shock wore off, we spent an entire year researching every therapy, treatment, drug, herb, and surgery on the market.
When our baby turned two we decided it was time to add Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) to her current therapy program of physical and occupational therapy. We packed our bags and off we went on a month long trip. We noticed dramatic changes in her spasticity (muscle tightness) after only three days of treatments!
Two years later, Hyperbaric Healing Institute was founded so we could get our daughter all the hyperbaric oxygen therapy she needed. Who knew having a child with Cerebral Palsy could have such a positive impact on so many lives? What a joy it is to go to work everyday. We have had the privilege of meeting people from all over the country and even a few other countries.
In 2005, we added a highly specialized physical therapy clinic to our facility. We feel that the combination of HBOT, Intensive Physical Therapy, and Biofeedback/Neurofeedback is the best program we can offer to those with neurological conditions such as Cerebral Palsy, Stroke, and Traumatic Brain Injury.
