Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is the medical treatment which involves the patient breathing 100% pure oxygen under increased pressure in a sealed chamber. Each cell in the body needs oxygen to preserve, repair, and enhance cellular function. By using the hyperbaric oxygen chamber, it increases the amount of oxygen carried by the blood to areas that are hard to target such as lymph and fluid surrounding the spinal cord. This gives a patient a greater opportunity to heal. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy also reduces swelling, decreases inflammation, strengthens the immune system and increases circulation. By having the blood carry oxygen to your organs and tissues, many different conditions can benefit from this type of therapy.
