Brain Balance Of Woodbury
We are a third of the way through a 12 week session. I am thrilled with the results. My 4 year old sees all the traditional therapists ( physical, occupational, and speech) I started brain balance because she was pulling her hair out. No one has been able to help that. I am so happy to say that she has completely stopped pulling!!! Before brain balance she was miles away from being potty trained.. now she is almost there! She is talking so much more and asking a million questions (something she didn't do before) Before brain balance she acted like a serious little adult.. now she is acting like a kid. I have seen so many improvements in such a short amount of time. We drive 2.5 hours each way to go.. it has been so worth it!

Maplewood VA Clinic - U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs
It was my first visit to the Maplewood VA Clinic. I was there almost 3 hours and everyone was attentive, professional, and THOROUGH. I went there with some trepidation but left feeling that my medical care is in good hands.

Tips & Advices
This depends on the facility. Patients should call to find out if they'll need a referral from their physician prior to making an appointment.
Aside from hyperbaric oxygen treatment, most wound care centers offer:
  • Debridement: The removal of dead skin and tissue surrounding the wound. This can be done surgically, using a whirlpool bath, syringes, enzymes that dissolve the tissue, or wet dressings that dry on the wound and absorb the dead tissue.
  • Dressing: Wrapping the wound in a protective film, gauze, gel, or foam.
  • Compression stockings: Tight-fitted fabric sheaths that encourage blood flow.
  • Artificial skin: A covering that is applied to the wound for several days as it heals.
  • Ultrasound: The use of sound waves to promote healing.
  • Growth factor therapy: The use of materials naturally produced by the body to encourage quick cell growth.
  • Negative pressure therapy: Creating a vacuum around a wound to encourage faster blood flow to the area.
Depending on where the treatment is administered, hyperbaric oxygen treatment  can cost $100- $1,000. After insurance is applied, patients may have a copay of $10 -$50 or a coinsurance fee of 10 percent to 50 percent.
Most wounds should heal within two to six weeks. An individual should seek chronic wound treatment if a wound has not begun to heal after two weeks or is not completely healed after six.
Most health insurance plans cover wound care. Patients should check with the clinic and their health insurance provider before seeking treatment to be sure.
