Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)
The Oxyhealth FDA approved chamber is a Soft-sided 1.3 ATA Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is a type of treatment using oxygen and pressurization. Inside of the HBOT chamber, air pressure is 1.3 times higher than average air pressure. Under these conditions, your lungs gather much more oxygen than would be possible breathing oxygen at normal pressures. This directly forces oxygen into the bloodstream to adequately supply nutrients to your tissue. When your blood carries this extra oxygen throughout your body, this helps fight bacteria and stimulate the release of substances called growth factors and stem cells, which promote healing. To benefit from Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, youll likely need more than one session. The number of sessions is dependent upon your medical condition. Some conditions, such as surgery for a torn ligament may require 5-10 treatments, while other conditions, such as traumatic brain injuries or concussions, may require 40 treatments or more.
