Hyperbarics Might Be Part Of Your Treatment Solution—

Have you tried various healing treatments, but haven’t found one that feels right for you? Hyperbaric Therapy might just be a missing piece of your healing puzzle.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) promotes faster healing using pressurized chambers to supersaturate the blood with oxygen. This extra oxygen—up to 200% the body’s normal levels—is able to reach damaged tissues, maximizing the body’s control over its own healing process.

The resulting “hyperoxygenation” helps fight bacteria, stimulates the release of growth factors and stem cells, and creates angiogenesis (the formation of new blood vessels). When combined, these benefits demonstrate the transformative and healing power of HBOT, allowing you to truly improve your body so you can improve your life.

What Can You Expect At A Hyperbaric Therapy Session?

A typical treatment plan is ninety minutes to two hours per day, five or six days a week. Some patients even receive two treatments a day, which is particularly helpful for patients who live farther away and want to minimize travel.

Our physicians review the patients’ progress once a week,  allowing us to create an optimized plan for patients who need surgery during their hyperbaric treatment course.

In each HBOT treatment session, patients breathe 100 percent oxygen while resting inside the chamber. As a result, patients regularly experience a brief warming sensation and some fullness in their ears as the chamber cabin is pressurized.

Throughout approximately 90 minutes of HBOT, a clinical staff member attends to patients at all times. As they emerge to surface pressure at the end of each session, patients often experience a cooling sensation and a mild crackling as their middle ear pressure equalizes.

HBOT speeds up the healing process by delivering oxygen to oxygen deprived areas.
