Hyperbaric oxygen therapy involves breathing pure oxygen in a pressurized room. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is most known for treatment for decompression sickness, a hazard of scuba diving. Conditions treated with hyperbaric oxygen therapy at our clinic include: accelerating the healing of orthopedic injuries, improving the results of PRP, stem cell transplant procedures, prolotherapy and other regenerative injection treatments for various neurologic conditions to improve oxygenation of the central nervous system, and chronic lyme disease have been treated successfully with HBO along with IV laser, IV Vit C, and IV ozone.
In a hyperbaric oxygen therapy room, the air pressure is raised higher than normal air pressure, usually between 1.3-2.8 times normal atmosphere. Under these conditions, your lungs can gather up to three times more oxygen than would be possible breathing pure oxygen at normal air pressure.
Your blood carries this oxygen throughout your body, stimulating the release of substances called growth factors and stem cells, which promote healing.
