   Improve Healing

HYPERBARIC OXYGEN THERAPY (HBOT) is a treatment in which the patient breaths 100% oxygen while the entire body is under increased atmospheric pressure in a Hyperbaric Chamber. Oxygen plays an important role in healing soft tissue injuries and wounds, and reducing the risk of infection. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is a proven, medical treatment that can benefit patients with a variety of conditions and help with the healing process. HBOT encourages the body to build new capillaries and reduce inflammation and swelling from injury, surgery or chronic illness.

Under normal circumstances, oxygen is transported throughout the body only by red blood cells. With Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, oxygen is dissolved into all of the body’s fluids and carried to areas where circulation is diminished or blocked. In this way, extra oxygen can reach all of the damaged areas and healing is accelerated.  At normal pressures, breathing air, oxygen intake is only 20%.  During HBOT patients receive 12-15 times more oxygen!
