Benefits of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy:

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy treats conditions such as serious infections, sports injuries, neurological conditions, wound healing and decompression sickness.

A course of mHBOT may:

  • improve strength, energy and endurance
  • relieve tension and stress
  • improve concentration and memory
  • detoxify the blood
  • promote healing and rejuvenation
  • strengthen heart and lungs
  • reduce headaches and migraines
  • improve metabolism and aid digestion
  • reduce fatigue and improve sleeping patterns
  • relieve muscle stiffness
  • improve skin conditions
  • strengthen the immune system
  • enhance feelings of wellbeing

Other benefits:

  • greatly increases oxygen concentration in all body tissues, even with reduced or blocked blood flow;
  • stimulates the growth of new blood vessels to locations with reduced circulation, improving blood flow to areas with arterial blockage;
  • causes a rebound arterial dilation, resulting in an increased blood vessel diameter greater than when therapy began, improving blood flow to compromised organs;
  • stimulates an adaptive increase in superoxide dismutase (SOD), one of the body's principal, internally produced antioxidants and free radical scavengers; and,
  • aids the treatment of infection by enhancing white blood cell action.
  • aids in treatment of chronic degenerative health problems related to atherosclerosis, stroke, peripheral vascular disease, diabetic ulcers, wound healing, preparation for skin grafting, cerebral palsy, brain injury, multiple sclerosis, delayed radiation injury, macular degeneration, decompression sickness (commonly known as “the bends”), air embolism, and other rare infections and poisonings;
  • any area where blood flow and oxygen delivery to vital organs is reduced, function and healing can be aided. When the brain is injured by stroke, CP, or trauma, HBOT may activate stunned parts of the brain to restore function;
  • results can be dramatic, especially in patients with cerebral vascular disease who commonly recover from complications of stroke more readily after HBOT. This is also true for potentially gangrenous legs and feet caused by blocked circulation—especially in diabetics—and slow-healing diabetic ulcers; HBOT relieves pain, helps fight infection, and keeps threatened tissues alive.
