Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) involves exposing patients to concentrated levels of oxygen at higher-than-normal atmospheric pressure in order to enhance the body's natural ability to heal. By increasing the pressure HBOT boosts the body's ability to absorb oxygen, provides anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial effects, speeds the body's ability to repair itself, and boosts the immune system.
The pressure within the hyperbaric chamber is minimally 1.3 times greater than normal atmospheric pressure. This higher pressure allows the oxygen to pierce deeper into the body, reaching organs that typically are not as greatly benefited from normal respiration. When a patient is immersed in and breathes oxygen at pressures ranging up to 1.3 times normal atmospheric pressure, oxygen tension in the lungs rises from its normal mercury pressure. Great amounts of oxygen are dissolved in all body tissues and fluids. Increased levels of oxygen remain for up to several hours after the treatment ends. During this time, white cells are better able to kill bacteria in infected tissues. Healing is accelerated as collagen and fibroblasts are laid down to create a base for new capillary growth. New blood vessel formation is accelerated. The high oxygen concentrations in nerve tissues can revive brain cells stunned by stroke or other neurological injuries.
At NeuroHealth Solutions you can benefit from even further accellerated healing by combining mHBOT with other Neuro Modulation therapies that help your body achieve a healing state.
They can look intimidating from the outside, but most patients find it relaxing and enjoyable. Our HBOT chambers are larger than most and have massaging recliners for your comfort.
