HYPERBARIC OXYGEN THERAPY

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is a treatment which enhances the body's natural healing process by inhalation of concentrated oxygen in a total body chamber, where atmospheric pressure is increased and controlled. It is used for a wide variety of treatments usually as a part of an overall treatment plan. 

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 organs, the muscles, 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 it's own healing process. The increased oxygen greatly enhances the ability of the white blood cells to kill bacteria, reduces swelling and allows new blood vessels to grow more rapidly into the affected areas. It is a simple, non-invasive and painless treatment.
