Cerebral Palsy Parent: Should I Try Oxygen Therapy?
Parents of children with cerebral palsy often look for alternative treatments to provide a better way of life for their child. Lisa Viele is one such parent. Her 11-year-old daughter, Lizzy, is blind, non-verbal, suffers from seizures, is spoon-fed, and wears diapers. After hearing a story of success from a fellow cerebral palsy parent, Lisa researched hyperbaric oxygen therapy as an option for Lizzy. Lisa describes her journey through the decision process, cost, insurance considerations and search for a clinic. Although the treatment is not FDA approved, there is some evidence that breathing in pure oxygen can increase healing of areas of the brain that were deprived of oxygen.
