Benefits of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy increases blood flow to tissues and allows healing to occur on a cellular level.

There are 10 primary benefits of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT):

1. Increased Perfusion

One of the immediate effects of hyberbaric oxygen is the immediate ability to absorb more oxygen. This allows your tissues to heal and repair damage.

2. Neovascularization

Neovascularization is the process of healing and rebuilding blood vessles and capillaries. This allows more blood to reach tissues to aid in the healing process.

3. Increased White Blood Cell Function

Our bodies use white blood cells to fight off infections of the body. Increasing the effectiveness of these cells allows your immune system to perform at its optimal level.

4. Nerve Healing

The nerves are the primary structures responsible for sending pain signals. Nerves depend on oxygen for healing so increasing oxygen will decrease repair time.

5. Wound Healing

Low oxygen allows for continued inflammation in tissues. Increasing oxygen through HBOT will decrease inflammation.

6. Stem Cells

Longer-term use of HBOT is stem cell release. Stem cells can differentiate into any cell in the body and are great to have as a part of overall healing.

7. Vasoconstricting

HBOT causes vasoconstriction while can lead to reduction of swelling in patients who need it.

8. Improved Mitochodrial Function

Mitochondria play a role in energy production and overall efficiency of cells. HBOT= more energy!

9. Anti Inflammatory Effect

It's no secret that increased oxygen decreases inflammation. Decreased inflammation leads to better health.

10. Antibiotic/Antimicrobial

HBOT has an effect of bacteria and microbes in the body and decreases the presense of both.
