Brain Injury Therapy Available For Iraqi War Veterans

The Department of Defense has estimated the number of Operation Enduring Freedom/Operation Iraqi Freedom veterans with combat-related traumatic brain injury could reach 360,000. While many of these victims are looking for help, it appears that some legislators are championing a treatment that seems to work. This is called hypberbaric oxygen therapy. This therapy has successfully treated 28 traumatic brain blast-injured service members and veterans. This type of brain injury can have and is having devastating and life-changing effects on soldieries and their families. Congress should be working harder to finding help for those with traumatic brain injury, especially for those who cannot afford expensive treatment. There is a clinic in San Diego that will help those with head injuries. To read more about brain injury therapy, please click the link.
