Southern Brain Injury Clinic is a Center of Excellence for treatment of TBI, PTSD, Concussion Syndrome, and related problems. We provide relief for those suffering by restoring brain function and life.
At Southern Brain Injury Clinic (SBIC), we understand the debilitating effects that brain trauma has on our patients, Studies show that TBI is one of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality in the U.S., accounting for approximately 2 million emergency room visits, 230,000 to 500,000 hospital admissions, and 52,000 deaths annually in the United States. Evidence consistently indicates that survivors of TBI are at increased risk for the development of severe, long-term psychiatric disorders, particularly depression, generalized anxiety disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder.

What makes our clinic unique is the use of HBOT to treat TBI, Concussion Syndrome/ Injury, and aid in Surgical Recovery. To us that means supplementing existing treatment programs and reducing the healing process by 30-50%.
While each treatment plan in different according to the need, typically younger patients with newer ailments require less treatment than patients with aged injuries.
As the scientific data continues to mount in favor of HBOT, we are entering a new era in therapeutic treatment and recovery. To ensure patient comfort and safety, we utilize state of the art, fully computerized, cutting edge hyperbaric technology and adhere to all international industry safety standards:
We have a great team at SBIC, and that starts at the top with Dr. Manchikes and Pat O’Brien our Safety and Technical Director. They work in concert to plan treatment details and work seamlessly to treat our patients.
Want to know what it feels like inside a hyperbaric oxygen therapy chamber? During the compression and decompression portions of the treatment, the patient will feel pressure in their ears – much like when changing altitudes. This can be equalized by either swallowing or yawning. Otherwise, it feels like sitting in a normal room. The patient lies down comfortably while enjoying a television program or DVD on a mounted flat screen TV and breathes just like they normally would. In fact, it is an incredibly relaxing time for most – some even use the time to take a nap!
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy sessions last 60 minutes. The pressure inside the oxygen chamber is gradually increased while 100% pure oxygen is added to the atmosphere. HBOT treatments are controlled by a computer, while simultaneously being monitored by our trained and experienced hyperbaric technicians.
