Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is a non-invasive treatment that involves breathing concentrated oxygen in a comfortable pressurized chamber. This leads to more effective healing by encouraging increased oxygen absorption into the bloodstream in excess of 1200%. The pressure of the chamber increases the mobility of oxygen, while delivering 100% oxygen. This causes increased oxygen saturation for cells, tissues, fluids, and increased ATP production.
One session costs $150 however we have a number of monthly membership/packages that can drop the price per session as low as $75.
Sessions last 60-90 minutes.
There is only one absolute contraindication for HBOT and that is untreated pneumothorax.
- First, we do an in-depth consultation going over the HBOT process, assess your health goals, and determine if you’re a good candidate.
- Second, we help develop a plan to fit your health goals.
- Third, patients are led into the chamber, where they can relax, read a book, take a nap, and experience the benefits of pressurized oxygen.
- Last, our staff will follow up with all patients to analyze the effectiveness of the treatment.
Yes. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy has been shown to improve endurance performance as well as overall muscle recovery. Many professional athletes utilize the benefits that HBOT can have on athletic performance. To learn more about how HBOT can improve your athletic performance visit our “Resources” page.
No, HBOT has shown to be beneficial for overall health, aging, reducing inflammation, and increasing longevity. These are things we can all benefit from. Many people can benefit from regular use of the healing powers of HBOT.
There are a plethora of studies coming out on the many benefits of hyperbaric oxygen therapy for all kinds of conditions. Some of these include Anti-aging, brain injury, arthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome, chronic pain, complex regional pain syndrome, concussion/TBI, Inflammatory bowl disease (IBD), Lyme disease, Interstitial cystitis, Migraine/headache, spinal cord injuries, stroke, surgery preparation & accelerated recovery, sports injuries.
You can wear normal comfortable clothing. Some chambers pressurize with 100% oxygen, but our chamber gives oxygen through a nasal cannula. This keeps oxygen levels inside the chamber at 21% making it extremely safe from a flammability concern.
When pressure changes inside the chamber it will feel very similar to descending on an airplane. The inner ears will feel the need to equalize. If you can handle an airplane descent, then you will do well inside the chamber.
Yes, hyperbaric oxygen therapy is safer than taking Ibuprofen. At our facility we take extensive precautions to make sure you are safe throughout treatment. Furthermore, our Oxyhealth hyperbaric chamber is arguably the safest on the market.
There are only a few insurance covered conditions for hyperbaric oxygen therapy. Those being acute carbon monoxide intoxication, decompression illness, gas embolism, gas gangrene, acute traumatic peripheral ischemia, crush injuries and suturing of severed limbs, progressive necrotizing infections, acute peripheral arterial insufficiency, preparation and preservation of compromised skin grafts, chronic refractory osteomyelitis, osteoradionecrosis, soft tissue radionecrosis, cyanide poisoning, actinomycosis, diabetic wound of lower extremities.
