It sustains life and provides the needed fuel for your brain to function. Oxygen helps fight off infection by boosting your immune system. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy effectively increases the volume of oxygen in your blood, increasing the beneficial effects oxygen has on your body.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Overview

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a revolutionary, non-invasive procedure which involves breathing pure oxygen in a pressurized chamber. Your lungs will gather more oxygen than they would if you breathe pure oxygen at normal air pressure.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is used to support healing in several medical conditions. The oxygen-rich environment helps fight bacteria and stimulates the release of growth factors and stem cells, which promotes the healing of serious infections and chronic wounds.

Following are some conditions commonly treated using Hyperbaric oxygen therapy.

Sports Injuries

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is used to reduce the recovery time of sports injuries. It has been shown to be effective in treating acute injury,  muscle contusions, and ankle sprains, along with joint, ligament, and tendon injuries.

Oxygen is essential for tissue healing. Increased oxygen concentration can enhance the body’s ability to heal. It allows for an increased supply of oxygen to the injured areas, resulting in quicker healing of soft tissue, ligaments, and fractures, and reduction in pain and swelling. It also improves the ability of white blood cells to fight bacteria and prevent infection, along with reducing scar tissue formation. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy will allow you to return to peak athletic performance sooner.

Post-Op Recovery

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy treatment floods tissues in your body with oxygen, promoting healing. It has been shown to reduce pain, swelling and bruising, and to fight off bacterial infections, decreasing complications, and increasing your comfort during the post-surgery recovery. With hyperbaric oxygen therapy, you'll speed up your surgery recovery process, and your scars will heal better and faster.

Lyme Disease Treatment

Lyme Disease is a bacterial infection commonly transmitted through the bite of an infected tick. In addition to antibiotics, treatment will often include hyperbaric oxygen therapy to help patients fight off Lyme disease because the bacteria that causes Lyme disease is anaerobic, meaning it cannot survive in oxygen. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy safely increases the oxygen levels within your body, which can help combat the harmful bacteria.

Patients undergoing hyperbaric oxygen therapy to treat Lyme disease may experience symptoms including fever, chills, headache, and more. This is caused by the endotoxins that are released as the bacteria die. These reactions are typically short-lived.

Autism Therapy

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy has been shown to be a powerful tool in treating autism. The majority of patients with autism have high levels of inflammation, compromised blood flow, and low oxygen delivery to parts of the body including the brain. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy helps decrease inflammation and improve oxygen levels and blood flow to the affected areas.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy has been shown to help improve overall functioning, receptive language, eye contact, and speech. It is also effective in decreasing irritability and hyperactivity in patients with autism.
