The procedure, known as hyperbaric oxygen therapy, uses a pressurized chamber to help scuba divers overcome the bends and to aid people sickened by toxic gases. But Dr. Paul G. Harch, who operates the clinic there on the outskirts of New Orleans, offers it as a concussion treatment.

Assessing Concussions at the World Cup
Philly.com

It was certainly an exciting game, but what really sparked a fire in me was the collision that occurred in the first half involving USA's Morgan Brian and Germany's Alexandra Popp. Clearly, there was significant head-to-head contact when they both went up for the ball.

However, nearly all lead to some type of disability and many are entirely catastrophic, leaving victims with permanent paralysis. Consequently, when a sport is involved — which is only 7-9 percent of the time (68-69 percent are from car wrecks and accidental falls), headlines are generated.
