Scuba Therapy Helps Veterans Heal

Diving is one of the activities in water that is increasingly popular. Apparently, there are many benefits of diving that you can get for your health, but of course, you also need to know the knowledge and important things to consider, both before or while driving.

Scuba diving (scuba diving) is one of the most popular types of diving activities. Scuba comes from the word Self-Contained Underwater Breathing Apparatus. Diving with this technique uses equipment such as oxygen cylinders, regulators, and tanks so that divers can breathe longer in water.

diving can help many health problems, such as helping with recovery after cancer treatment or helping practice the ability to walk in people with spina bifida.

Not only that, but a study and experience have also been proven that diving is considered to help the recovery of someone who has PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) or post-traumatic stress disorder. Breathing techniques that are done regularly when diving can provide calm, making it easier to be able to control the symptoms experienced. Dive activities are also considered challenging and interesting to master, thus providing opportunities to start new things and not always focus on the past.

Many of America’s military veterans struggle with injuries and disabilities. Scuba diving might not be the first therapy that comes to mind to help these individuals, but data support the value of scuba diving for improving the physical and mental health of people suffering from conditions including post-traumatic stress disorder, traumatic brain injury, and chronic pain.

Diveheart, a nonprofit organization founded in 2001, provides adaptive scuba training to volunteer divers and instructors and offers unique opportunities in zero gravity to veterans and others with a variety of disabilities.

The Diveheart motto, "Imagine the Possibilities," reflects the positive attitude of the organization and the hope and healing it offers.A subset of the organization, Diveheart Military Wounded focuses specifically on introducing veterans with physical and mental disabilities to the benefits of scuba therapy.

On the physical side, scientific research and the personal experiences of veterans show that water pressure and the feeling of weightlessness can relieve physical and mental tension as well as chronic pain."The weightlessness kind of helps my body release itself" says Coast Guard veteran Kevin Cozzie in an interview with the Daily Herald, a publication based in suburban Chicago.

"I can feel it when I get out of the water."Ian James Brown, an Air Force veteran who was injured in the line of duty, returned to scuba diving after his injury through a Diveheart program."I discovered scuba again," he says in an interview on the Diveheart website,

"I was able to integrate skills I thought I had lost," such as the regulation of breathing and balance, he says. "It made me challenge myself a bit more."Mr. Brown, who suffers from chronic neuro spinal pain but has chosen to forego medication, "felt this euphoric feeling," and realized that he was "living pain-free for the first time in 11 years," during an extended dive in Cozumel.

The mental health benefits of scuba diving are as valuable as the physical. Veterans who have participated in Diveheart programs report that learning new skills, gaining confidence, and bonding with other veterans who have experienced similar challenges create a sense of community and empowerment. For many disabled veterans, scuba diving helps them realize the possibilities rather than focus on their limitations, according to Diveheart founder Jim Elliott.

Diveheart relies on volunteers and donations to help provide adaptive diving and scuba therapy experiences at no cost to participants. Visit for more information about the way scuba diving can change veterans’ lives
