HyperBaric Oxygen Therapy
Delivering 95% pure oxygen to your body at 1.3 atmospheres (1.3 times more pressure than normal) is what makes HyperBaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) so effective. In general it promotes oxygen delivery by increasing the amount of oxygen you can ingest and rapidly eliminate inert gases.
This is a similar process as performed on divers, in which case it’s called a compression chamber, when they have not properly ascended. Risk for oxygen toxicity is reduced in our office by scheduling periods of regular air breathing, and monitoring our patients. We keep all risks to a minimum.
Speed Healing. Reduce Pain.
Many of the treatments provided by HyperBaric Oxygen Therapy are in relation to two types of conditions; those involving pain, and those involving healing. HBOT has been recommended as a treatment to increase the amount of oxygen your blood can hold in order to restore normal levels of blood gases and tissue function. Overall, HBOT promotes healing, pain reduction, and fighting infections.
