Blue32 Jax & Vets 22 Partner To Provide Free Treatments For Veterans
Jacksonville Florida is home to one of the most significant military veteran populations in the United States of America. Harbor improvements and year-round summer-like conditions continue to make Jacksonville a vital military and civilian deep-water port. With more veterans serving in wartime operations the need to help our heroes recover after grueling deployments are needed now more than ever.
One company that has decided to open its door to the heroes of our nation is Blue32 Jax. Blue32 Jax is a leader in providing the best Cryotherapy, Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatments, Infrared Sauna Sessions, and Normatec Recovery Sessions to weekend warriors and everyday athletes in Jacksonville Florida. From the day Blue32 Jax opened its doors, the innovative sports technology company dedicated the 22nd of every month to provide free Cryotherapy and Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatments to veterans of all eras. "The impact these free treatments are having for our veterans is extraordinary. We owe it to our heroes to provide them with the best treatments and care available, it's our responsibility as business owners and Americans," stated Drayton Florence owner of Blue32 Jax. Florence has deep roots in the military community that extends far past providing free treatments to veterans. In addition to Florence's close family members that are currently serving in the military, Florence co-founded and co-developed a mobile application dedicated to helping veterans find life-saving resources.

Blue32 Jax's reasoning for dedicating the 22nd of every month to our veterans rests in the number 22. "It's unfortunate that 22 veterans commit suicide a day due to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Traumatic Brain Injury," said Florence. Recent studies have shown that Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatments are remarkably beneficial for patients suffering from Traumatic Brain Injuries. In a 2012 study, Dr. Paul Harch found “blast-induced traumatic brain injury (TBI) and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) are diagnoses of particular concern in the United States because of the volume of affected servicemen and women from the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan.” Dr. Harch serves as the Department of Internal Medicine director at Louisiana State University School of Medicine, and he is also a renowned clinical professor. Harch’s 2012 study found that participants undergoing hyperbaric oxygen therapy “demonstrated significant improvements … in symptoms, abnormal physical exam findings, cognitive testing, and quality-of-life measurements…”
Vets 22, a brand developed by the award-winning veteran owned technology company Tech From Vets has partnered with Blue32 Jax to sponsor this month's free treatment sessions for veterans. Veterans simply call Blue32 Jax to schedule an appointment to receive treatments, no hassle, no paperwork, or VA identification required. "Our heroes have experienced enough stress attempting to access care; we want our heroes to feel comfortable at this life-saving facility (Blue32 Jax). Drayton and his staff have done a brilliant job providing life-saving treatments to our heroes, we are proud to partner and sponsor this day," stated decorated war veteran Brandon Sugar who serves as the spokesperson for Tech From Vets.
