Cerebral Palsy

Oxford Recovery Center offers therapies that increase muscular control, neurological function, fine and gross motor skills, proprioception, language development.

What is Cerebral Palsy?

Cerebral palsy (CP) refers to any of a category of neurological disorders that permanently affect muscle coordination and body body movement. Cerebral palsy appears in infancy or early childhood, but does not worsen with age. [1] The Oxford Recovery Center uses an integration of HBOT, Oxford Physical Therapy, and Oxford Neurofeedback to improve function of clients with cerebral palsy.

How does Hyperbaric Oxygen help with Cerebral Palsy?

Hyperbaric oxygen has the ability to massively create stem cells in your body. In fact, studies show that your body produces 800% more stem cells after 40 treatments of hyperbaric oxygen. Your body uses these stem cells as extra resources to heal and recover, since stem cells are able to grow up into any kind of cell the body needs. In the case of Cerebral palsy there can be body tissues which need to be repaired even after toxins and pathogens have been removed from the body. The stem cells produced by hyperbaric oxygen are able to repair this damage.

Hyperbaric oxygen also kickstarts the body’s natural immune system. Hyperbaric oxygen grows brand new white blood cells, modulates immune reactions, and causes new collagen to grow in the gut where 90% of the immune system is located. Better gut function translates to better digestion, absorption of nutrients, and more good probiotic bacteria that keep our immune systems healthy. A healthy immune system is essential for recovery from Cerebral palsy.

Cerebral palsy is marked by chronic inflammation and constant oxidative stress. Hyperbaric oxygen dramatically lowers inflammation and decreases oxidative stress as it grows new blood vessels throughout the body, providing a new infrastructure of oxygen-rich blood and nutrients to reach inflamed tissue. Hyperbaric oxygen creates a new and ongoing positive chain of events in the body that helps lead to recovery from Cerebral palsy.

Studies have found that hyperbaric oxygen treatment has significant healing neurological properties. A very thorough study, including follow up of more than 1000 children with cerebral palsy, by Dr. Pierre Marois, found that greater than 80% of patients with cerebral palsy who treated with hyperbaric oxygen experienced significant improvement. And our clinical experience also attests to this fact.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)

A specialized form of medical treatment administered by delivering 100% pure oxygen to the body through increased atmospheric pressure greater than 1.3 ATA. in an enclosed hard chamber.

Physical Therapy and Suit Therapy

The Oxford Recovery Center integrates conventional Physical Therapy and Suit Therapy programs to accelerate the development of new motor skills that strengthen muscles and teach the brain and body how to sit, stand, and walk.

QEEG/Neurofeedback with Real-time Brain Imaging

The Oxford Neurofeedback program evaluates brain activity patterns and teaches self-regulation of brain function through quantitative electroencephalography (qEEG). Also known as “brain mapping,” qEEG analyzes electrical patterns at the surface of the scalp.

Nutrition and Weight-Loss

The Oxford Nutrition and Weight-Loss Program approaches your nutritional needs in a personalized manner that caters to your needs.
