Aviv Clinics pledges $1 million in in-kind treatments to help veterans get their lives back, first four Navy SEALs to start treatment in November
ORLANDO, Fla., Nov. 11, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Aviv Clinics, the global leader in the research and treatment of brain conditions, today announces a pledge of $1 million in in-kind treatments to support the nationally recognized nonprofit, America’s Mighty Warriors (AMW) and its “Helping Heroes Heal” program.
According to the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs, nearly 414,000 U.S. military members have been diagnosed with traumatic brain injury (TBI) since 2000. Soldiers are at risk for blast injuries from shock waves, rocket propelled grenades, IEDs and landmines. It has been estimated that more than 50% of all combat injuries are blast injuries occurring in Iraq and Afghanistan, which is where the first four Navy SEALs served.
Aviv Clinics’ program includes a comprehensive suite of cognitive and physical evaluations, followed by a personalized treatment protocol that includes hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT), cognitive training, counseling, physical training and dietary coaching. Aviv Clinics is the only facility in the world to offer this comprehensive, multi-disciplined level of treatment using HBOT, which has been proven to reduce the symptoms associated with TBI and concussion.
The first veterans to mark Aviv Clinics’ partnership with AMW are four former Navy SEALs who will participate in Aviv’s TBI and concussion treatment protocol from late November through January 2023. Aviv Clinics’ comprehensive, multi-disciplinary treatment spans approximately two to three months from pre-assessment to post-treatment follow-ups at Aviv Clinics’ Florida location.
“Our veterans sacrificed everything to protect our country and far too many come home broken; physically, emotionally and psychologically,” said David Globig, CEO of Aviv Clinics. “Too often our veterans are told by doctors that there’s nothing else we can do. We have the best program in the country to treat our veterans – backed by research – and we are proud to partner with and support America’s Mighty Warriors’ mission to honor the sacrifices made by our nation’s troops by providing improved quality of life, helping them recover from the physical and psychological damage suffered during their service.”
America’s Mighty Warriors is non-profit dedicated to providing active military and veterans with programs to improve quality of life. AMW was established after CEO and founder Debbie Lee received the tragic news that her son, Marc Lee, was the first Navy SEAL killed in Iraq. Since then, Lee has dedicated her life to fighting for America’s troops and their families to have access to healthcare and other services that help in their recovery after sustaining an injury or experiencing loss.
Lee, alongside America’s Mighty Warriors president Dennis Brewer, toured Aviv Clinics’ facility in central Florida earlier this year to learn more about the Aviv Medical Program and how physicians and experts are helping veterans suffering from TBI and concussion. After seeing how successful the program is in helping veterans get their lives back, Lee enthusiastically committed to the partnership.
“Aviv Clinics is the most advanced brain and research center in the world offering a one-of-a-kind treatment for our veterans,” said Lee. “The four Navy SEALs to go through the Aviv Medical Program is just the start – America’s Mighty Warriors look forward to a long-term partnership. This is exactly what our service men and women suffering from TBI need to get back to ‘normal’ life.”
A study by the Sagol Center for Hyperbaric Medicine and Research at Shamir Medical Center found that HBOT can induce neuroplasticity, improve mental impairments, such as difficulty remembering things, learning new things, concentrating or making decisions, and improve overall quality of life in patients suffering from TBI.
