Cerebral Palsy Treatment with Hyperbaric


(This is an update to our earlier letter in April 04). Abigail is now two and a half years old and has cerebral palsy from lack of oxygen at birth. She has experienced many challenges, including seizure activity, feeding difficulties, and developmental delays. She does not walk or crawl yet, so most days are spent carrying her around. I shared with many of you in an earlier letter about a new treatment with promising results for kids with CP. It's called hyperbaric oxygen therapy. HBOT delivers 100% pure oxygen to a patient in a pressurized unit. We have successfully gone through 40 treatments to date. We have seen some improvement. The changes may seem small, but are significant to us. Abigail's vision has improved (verified by an opthamologist appt), she is now bending forward while sitting and reaching for her feet (also untying her shoes). She seems more alert and cognitively aware of things. She is reaching for her toys more than before. She feeds with less of a gag reacation than before. She also slept better during the treatment period. So many of you responded in a gracious way when I shared our need.
Thank you so much!!!
While we have already gone thru therapy, I am still selling Dawn Hall's cookbooks to cover our balance and to hopefully continue with more HBOT treatments in the near future.
Again, each cookbook is $17 ($20 for those outside of Arizona or if it needs to be mailed). If anyone missed out the first time around. you have another opportunity to get a cookbook and help out.
Thanks again!!!

Cerebral Palsy Patient - Treatment Changed Life

Aug 18, 2000 08:45 PM

Article by Carey Peña

A Valley woman who has cerebral palsy says an alternative type of therapy has helped changed her life for the better. Amy Gustavison, 30, says she can do things now that she never thought possible - like walk without a walker, stand up and balance in the swimming pool and speak better than ever before. Gustavison attributes her improvements to what’s called Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy. HBO is 100 percent of oxygen at greater than surface pressure administered in small sequential doses, one hour each, one to two times a day. Patients receive the treatment in what looks like a chamber. HBO is said to have helped patients who have dramatic cases of diabetic wound healing, other patients have unexpected improvements from strokes and brain injuries and, in the case of Gustavison, better balance and coordination. Several other parents at the clinic talked about dramatic improvements they have witnessed with their children, all of whom are young and suffer from cerebral palsy.

Child with Cerebral Palsy Benefits from Hyperbaric Chambers Therapy

November 1996 I had my twin boys December 6,1996 at 28 weeks. Peter was 1 pound 15 ounces and J J was 2 pounds 10 ounces.

By two years old, Peter was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy. At 2-1/2 years old, Peter was unable to sit unsupported, not crawling and could only say the first syllable of words like uma' for mommy and 'Ba' for Barney. It was at 2-1/2 years old, when we took Peter to Canada for Hyberbaric Oxygen Treatments (HBOT). He completed his first 40 treatments there.

The month following treatment, Peter began talking much more. He began telling me what he wanted, like 'more juice, mommy.' He also began singing the "ABC" song and counting to 10. Peter became more interested in toys and books. He began holding his own sippy-cup and began sitting with his back straighter. He began eating better and taking in fluids much easier. We were very encouraged. We knew we could not stop at 40 treatments.

Fortunately, we found a wonderful chamber here in Phoenix and have just completed 40 more HBO treatments. Since these treatments, Peter continues to improve verbally and will try to say any word you ask him to. He now tries to pull himself to a wanted toy, which he has never done nor has he even tried to do. He plays games with me and is more interactive with people that he doesn't even know. His eyes continue to get brighter and more alert.

Although he does not sit independently on the floor, he is sitting in some chairs and can sit in a high chair, which has made eating out as a family much easier. He has also become aware of his movements and when he begins to fall, he has said, "Owhoa, that's scary-O".

I am seeing that his reasoning seems to be improving; he has begun lifting his foot for a step when in the standing position. Peter's general daily care has totally changed. Having him talk to me to tell me what his needs are, has changed my perspective and makes my work to care for his needs more fun.

Watching Peter make improvements every day has brought much joy to me. I feel like I have finally found a therapy that, coupled with his other therapies, has begun to make a noticeable difference. Peter has been able to join his twin brother and older twin sisters in some fun interactive play, which of course brings joy to them and to me. I plan to continue to give Peter more treatments for as long as we can financially afford them.

I would encourage anyone with a brain injury to try HBOT.
