The SFCFH is proud of the fact the we have treated hundreds of children with autism, cerebral palsy, near drowning, and traumatic brain injury. All of these diagnosis have one thing in common – they are all “brain wounds”.
Typically, a wound cannot heal without oxygen. By infusing the body and the brain with the increased levels of oxygen, idling or non-functioning brain neurons can be stimulated to return to a more normal function. Cognitive function should improve with all brain injuries. A child with autism will result in better social behavior, improved eye contact, and in many incidences, speech.
Cognition, spasticity and core strength are just a few of the improvements seen in the child with cerebral palsy, near drowning, and TBI.
