The mission of Project Recoil is to locate, close with, and heal the Invisible Wounds of War.
Gulf War Syndrome, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, and Traumatic Brain Injury
are the signature injuries of the War on Terror.
We are committed to raising awareness to these injuries
and supporting the veterans who are affected by them.
Hyperbaric Oxygenation Therapy (HBOT) is a method of administering high-dose oxygen at greater than atmospheric pressure in order to improve or correct certain conditions. In many cases, such as those involving circulatory problems, adequate oxygen can't reach the damaged area and the body's natural healing process fails to function properly. Breathing oxygen under pressure overcomes this deficit by providing an abundant supply that reaches deep into all parts of the body. The extra oxygen helps in the healing process, enhancing the body's natural ability to fight infection, build new tissue, and regenerate nerves and neurons. It’s like pressure washing infection out of your body. It is possible to rebuild a brain in 120 days with 80 HBOT 1.5 treatments. Hyperbaric oxygen has been used for more than 30 years to repair chronic brain injuries and has repaired neurological injuries from decompression sickness for more than 80 years.
A single loss of consciousness results in organic brain injury and, untreated, is the most expensive medical condition in our society. In our untreated combat veterans, this leads to shattered lives through personality changes, aberrant violent behavior, divorces, substance abuse, jail time, disability, homelessness, and far too often, domestic violence or suicide.Veterans now account for one of every five suicides in the nation. For our thousands of returning veterans from the war, this is our reality.
