The Science Behind Hyperbaric Therapy
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is the use of oxygen in a pressurized environment, where the air pressure is increased up to three times higher than normal air pressure. Under these conditions, your lungs can gather more oxygen than would be possible breathing pure oxygen at normal air pressure. Your blood carries this oxygen throughout your body, helping to fight bacteria and stimulate the release of substances called growth factors and stem cells to promote healing. This noninvasive therapy is the most trusted way to increase oxygen levels to all organs of the body.
In several clinical studies, HBOT has demonstrated that it enhances the body’s innate ability to repair and regenerate. It is used as an adjunct therapy to complement and enhance the healing process in both chronic and acute conditions.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is used to treat several medical conditions and in several in different ways. You may consider hyperbaric oxygen therapy if you have one of the following conditions:
- Bone Infections
- Chronic Pain
- Dementia & other Neurodegenerative Diseases
- Non-healing Wounds
- Radiation injury
- Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
