Telly, Near drowning over 15 years ago
When I started the Hyperbaric Chamber at Rapid Recovery I had been diagnosed with Relapsing – Remitting Multiple Sclerosis for 23 years. I was taking Solu Medrol approximately every 3 to 4 months to keep my symptoms from acting up and just to have enough energy to get through the day.
After 60 treatments in several months at the Rapid Recovery Center I have not taken another drug for almost a year. I didn’t realize how far down I had come until I felt better. I am sensate in parts of my body for the first time in years. M balance is considerably improved and my fine motor skills are considerably better. Overall I feel wonderful and you could not tear me away from Rapid Recovery, Dr Underwood’s and Susan’s expertise.
While I was being treated we also put my 17 year old son in the chamber who was a near drowned when he was 2 ½ years old. He has been in special education his entire life and we wanted to see if this would help. He received the same amount of treatments as myself. His speech has improved noticeably as per his IEP at school at a much faster rate than in the past. Speech is on of his main problems as well as cognitive functions. Overall he has gone through a maturation that we hope will continue, and is now able to read 2 grades higher from last year meeting at school. But more noticeably we see improvement at home on “ Common Sense” issues that cannot be taken for granted with Special ed. Kids. Telly’s progress has been steady over these past 15 years. But it seems that the Hyperbaric Treatments have touched places that have not progressed, and accelerated the others.
It is a wonderful non- invasive treatment for these special children and I would recommend Rapid Recovery Hyperbarics Highly.
