WHAT IS HYPERBARIC OXYGEN THERAPY?
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is approved by the FDA to treat many medical conditions. HBOT increases the amount of oxygen your blood can carry. An increase in blood oxygen may restore normal levels of blood gases and tissue function to promote healing and fight infection.
Under normal circumstances, oxygen is transported throughout the body only by red blood cells. With HBOT, oxygen is dissolved into all of the body’s fluids, the plasma, the central nervous system fluids, the lymph, and the bone and can be carried to areas where circulation is diminished or blocked. In this way, extra oxygen can reach all of the damaged tissues and the body can support its own healing process. The increased oxygen greatly enhances the ability of white blood cells to kill bacteria, reduce swelling and allow new blood vessels to grow more rapidly into the affected areas. It is a simple, non-invasive, and painless treatment.
Whether you have an existing condition or are looking to heal faster, hyperbaric oxygen can help your system detoxify, reduce inflammation, increase cell production, and improve circulation.
