Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is a safe, non-invasive way to promote healing and recovery in patients of all ages. One simply sits or lies down in a pressurized chamber breathing 100% pure oxygen. This saturates all of the cells in the body with oxygen, stimulating the body’s potent healing abilities.
The average person breathes in about 6 pounds of oxygen a day, which is about the same amount by weight of food and water intake. During a single hour of HBOT, a person will take in about 2 to 4 pounds of oxygen. This increases the oxygen content of the tissues by a factor of 10-15x. Some of the effects this has are to promote the growth of new vessels, decreases swelling and inflammation, deactivates toxins, increase the body’s ability to fight infections, clears out toxins and metabolic waste products, and improves the rate of healing.
With over 350 years as a treatment method, hyperbaric therapy’s effectiveness is well established and documented by numerous studies. Contact us today to learn how it can help your specific situation.
