Divers 4 Heroes

Divers helping wounded veterans rehabilitate mind and body through adaptive SCUBA diving.

What can make a difference in the life of a wounded veteran? What could help our heroes experience freedom from wheelchairs, crutches or prosthetics? The answer is SCUBA!  

The Divers 4 Heroes Foundation has served HUNDREDS OF WOUNDED VETERANS with all levels of injuries. The goal of our team is freedom from challenges such as pain, triggers, and gravity. 

"A small group of veterans with spinal cord injuries who underwent a four-day scuba- diving certification saw significant improvement in muscle movement, increased sensitivity to light touch and pinprick on the legs, and large reductions in post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptoms, according to Johns Hopkins researchers. ........ .. the findings suggest there may be a pathway for restoring neurological and psychological function in paraplegics that has been overlooked thus far. What we saw in the water strongly suggests there is some scuba-facilitated restoration of neurological and psychological function in paraplegics. It’s very provocative.”  Adam Kaplin, M.D., Ph.D., Johns Hopkins
