HYPERBARIC OXYGEN THERAPY
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is a medical treatment which enhances the body’s natural healing process by inhalation of 100% oxygen in a total body chamber, where atmospheric pressure is increased and controlled. It is used for a wide variety of treatments usually as a part of an overall medical care plan.
Under normal circumstances, oxygen is transported throughout the body only by red blood cells. With HBOT, oxygen is dissolved into all of the body’s fluids, the plasma, the central nervous system fluids, the lymph, and the bone and can be carried to areas where circulation is diminished or blocked. In this way, extra oxygen can reach all of the damaged tissues and the body can support its own healing process. The increased oxygen greatly enhances the ability of white blood cells to kill bacteria, reduces swelling and allows new blood vessels to grow more rapidly into the affected areas. It is a simple, non-invasive and painless treatment.
Because this therapy only involves breathing in oxygen, there is very little risk of side effects other than potential discomfort from inhaling a greater concentration of oxygen than is commonly found in the air we normally breathe as well as adapting to the increase in pressure. However, these are all temporary side effects that subside after leaving the chamber.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) has the extraordinary ability to improve your quality of life when standard medicine is simply not working or as a supplement to traditional medicine. Simple, effective and lifesaving, HBOT can be your answer to recovery.
HBOT is the only non-hormonal therapy that is used to biologically repair and regenerate human tissue.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is used at Regenevéda for:
- Stimulating regenerative medicine therapy activity
- Improving inflammation
- Repair and recovery of tissue
- Many more…
At Regeneveda, we assess our patients’ health and can create a recommendation on number of sessions needed, or if HBOT is a good fit for your particular injury or condition.
