What is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)?

Hyperbaric Chamber at Spinal Solutions

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is a non-invasive medical treatment administered by delivering 100% oxygen at pressures greater than normal atmospheric (sea level) pressure to a patient in a chamber. Hyperbaric oxygen acts as a drug, eliciting varying levels of response at different dosages. HBOT promotes healing by increasing the oxygen concentration in the body at the cellular level. HBOT is FDA approved and has been proven effective as an adjunctive therapy for specific indications. It is used around the world. HBOT has clearly been demonstrated to drastically enhance the body’s ability to heal.

HOW DOES IT WORK WITH THE BODY?

There are many benefits associated with intermittent exposure to doses of hyperbaric oxygen:

  • Angiogenesis-HBOT allows oxygen to reach low oxygen (hypo-perfused) tissue and stimulates growth of blood vessels to improve blood flow and oxygen supply to compromised tissue and bone so that it is better able to repair itself.
  • Infection Fighting- high levels of oxygen enhance the function of the cells that fight infection in our bodies and also helps eliminate infections caused by bacteria which cannot live in an oxygenated environment, such as gangrene
  • Vasoconstriction- HBOT produces constriction of blood vessels which can reduce edema while, at the same time, delivering significant levels of oxygen to poorly perfused tissue

Benefits of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)

HBOT substantially repairs healthy cells and stimulates your body to release growth factors and stem cells that promote healing. Additionally, it has been shown to significantly reduce inflammation.

Many doctors use it on patients who need to reduce inflammation in the bones and adjacent tissues. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) improves and accelerates the body’s natural healing process via the inhalation of 100% medical oxygen in a pressurized chamber with ambient air from 1.3 to 2.0 ATA (Atmosphere Absolute).The oxygen level in the blood stream increases exponentially, which helps control infections and promotes healing of illnesses and injuries.

Due to the high pressure, oxygen is dissolved into the bodily fluids and carried to areas where circulation is diminished or blocked. With HBOT, your lungs can metabolize up to 3 times more oxygen than they normally do. Since all cells need oxygen to function and regenerate properly, the human body is now able to heal itself faster.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is a safe, non-invasive and painless treatment.
