A 40-year-old member asked:
is hyperbaric oxygen treatment is really an effective treatment for stroke problems such as hand tremors?

Hyperbaric treatment: The literature on the use of hyperbaric oxygen for strokes is not conclusive about whether it helps. This is not one of the indications that medicare reimburses facilities or physicians for either. This usually means considerable out of pocket costs for those patients.

Yes: We've treated stroke patients for over 10 years, and the results are typically very good. It's difficult to predict which symptoms will be helped by how much and how quickly, but the benefits are usually well worth it.

No: Some people will tell you yes, so far no proof it is being studied for strokes in general.
