Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy has many uses in medicine, including the treatment of infections, wounds that have trouble healing, carbon monoxide poisoning, and traumatic brain injury. As a therapeutic treatment, it offers all the benefits of healing oxygen to your entire body.

What is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy uses air under increased pressure to help your body absorb more oxygen. This extra oxygen travels through all of your tissues, improving their healing ability, helping them fight infections, and even ward off signs of aging. 

Hyperbaric oxygen treatment has been used in medicine for many years to treat a wide variety of health conditions. More recently, people have discovered its health-enhancing and anti-aging benefits.

How Does Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Work?

A hyperbaric chamber, which can hold air 2-3 times normal pressure, administers hyperbaric oxygen therapy. Under these conditions, your body absorbs more oxygen than it can from ordinary air, oxygenating your tissues and speeding up natural healing abilities to the parts of your body that need it most. 

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is the treatment of choice for some medical conditions. Poor oxygen supply can lead to wounds that do not heal or infections that spread out of control. In addition, boosting oxygen supply can help injuries heal faster. 

What is Oxygen Therapy in a Hyperbaric Chamber Like?

Once the air has been pressurized, you may feel pressure in your ears similar to what you might feel on a plane. You do not need to do anything except breathe during treatment, as the extra air pressure will naturally increase your oxygen intake. Treatments usually last about one hour.

Is There Any Downtime With Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?

You may feel tired after time in a hyperbaric chamber. This common effect will go away quickly but should not stop you from returning to your daily activities immediately after treatment. 

Am I a Good Candidate for Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?

Your provider will evaluate whether you are a good candidate during your consultation. Most people are good candidates, but certain medical conditions may mean you should not be exposed to pressurized air. 

What Results Will I See With Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?

For most conditions, several treatments produce the best results. Some conditions may require ongoing treatments over a long period of time. Some people may use hyperbaric oxygen therapy on a regular basis for its health benefits. 

For people using hyperbaric oxygen therapy as a preventative or health-enhancing treatment, you can expect that after the initial tiredness, you will feel energized and restored. The use of hyperbaric oxygen therapy can help injuries and illnesses heal faster and keep your body working at its best.
