Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT)

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is the medical use of oxygen in a pressurized environment, at a level higher than 1 atmosphere absolute (ATA). Increased pressure allows for oxygen to dissolve and saturate the blood plasma (independent of hemoglobin/red blood cells), which yields a broad variety of positive physiological, biochemical and cellular effects. This noninvasive therapy is the most trusted way to increase oxygen levels to all organs of the body. The typical treatment lasts for 60-90 minutes, during which the patient lies down and breathes normally.

HBOT has been demonstrated in several clinical studies to enhance the body’s innate ability to repair and regenerate. It is used as an adjunct therapy to complement and enhance the healing process in both chronic and acute conditions.

The Power of Oxygen:

On average, an individual consumes about six pounds of oxygen per day, far outweighing any other nutrient demands. Although oxygen performs many roles in the body, its primary role is in the production of energy. Yes, that is correct, only 50% of our energy comes from the fats and carbohydrates we consume. For our bodies to make this stored energy usable, our cells must convert this energy into molecules of ATP using OXYGEN.

By using the hyperbaric chamber, we can greatly increase the partial pressure of oxygen, which then dissolves the oxygen into the plasma and other waterborne fluids of the body. This is extremely significant because water and gases dissolved within it can cross the cells semi-permeable membrane via osmosis and diffusion.  Since the body is approximately 70% water and every cell literally bathes in water, we use the chamber to deliver oxygen to every tissue in the body…Our bodies do the rest.

Reach your peak health potential with HBOT. Ask about our packages.

  • Deliver oxygen to tissues up to 25 times normal levels
  • Stimulate the production of body stem cells
  • Boost immune system function
  • Decrease swelling and inflammation
  • Help the body to clear toxins and increases the body’s ability to fight infection
  • Promote regeneration of injured tissues
  • Reduce fatigue from chronic inadequate oxygen supply to the cells and tissues of the body
  • Reduce jet lag related fatigue symptoms
  • Decrease ligament and tissue healing time
  • Successfully treat traumatic and ischemic brain injuries

Who would ever believe that something as natural and simple as air we breathe (at an increased pressure level) could give our athletes the extra edge that is unavailable in pill or powder?

HBOT is not covered by insurance plans in our office, as we are not offering it for treatment of specific diagnoses.

Our Chambers:

Fortius 420

Our in-office steel-sided chamber has a giant 42” diametric interior. With mirrored controls inside and out, the Fortius 420 offers remarkably safe functionality at a wide range of protocols. Although most patients choose to use either a mask or a nasal canula, this chamber can deliver 100% oxygen at up to 3.0 ATA through a mask, canula or hood assembly system to remain safe for patients

Fortius 420

Vitaeris 320

This machine is not in our office, but is available for patients to rent on a 30 day basis. It is a popular chamber amongst parents, physicians, celebrities and professional athletes that would prefer to treat at home. The sizeable 32” diametric chamber has complete freedom of movement for patients and maintains strict and impeccable safety specifications. Strategically angled air-in port and tamper-proof redundant pressure regulators maintains consistent circulatory air flow within the chamber during treatments. The Vitaeris 320 roomy interior provides you with peace of mind during treatments. Five patient viewing windows illuminate the interior with room light.

Inflammation & Hyperbaric Oxygen

Inflammation is a major finding in numerous medical conditions and coincides with nearly all types of injuries and insults to the body. Numerous studies have reported chronic inflammation in Alzheimer’s disease, Atherosclerosis, Autism, Cancer, Stroke, Diabetes, Traumatic Brain Injury and many other chronic health challenges. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) has been demonstrated to substantially attenuate inflammation throughout the body. HBOT drives increased levels of oxygen into the body, which travels through the plasma, subsequently reducing inflammation and pain. Studies have shown that HBOT increases anti-inflammatory levels and provides increased cellular aid to heal target regions. As oxygen serves as one of the primary mechanisms to ameliorating inflammation, HBOT creates the environment where this process is stimulated and enhanced. Studies have demonstrated the benefits of HBOT for inflammation with the following:

Support Anti-Inflammatory Process at the Cellular Level with HBOT

  • Decreases Acute/Chronic Inflammation
  • Increases Anti-Inflammatory Cytokines
  • Accelerates Fibroblast Activation
  • Minimizes Pain & Discomfort
  • Reduces Swelling

Reduce Neuroinflammation with HBOT

  • Decreases Autism Symptoms
  • Reduces Risk of Alzheimer’s & Parkinson’s Disease
  • Supports the Prevention & Treatment of Stroke

Decrease Gastrointestinal Inflammation with HBOT

  • Remediates Inflammatory Bowel Disease
  • Improves Nutritional Absorption
  • Helps with Ulcerative Colitis

Relieve Soft Tissue/Joint Inflammation with HBOT

  • Remediates Osteoarthritis & Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Accelerates Recovery from Sports-Related & High Impact Injuries
  • Improves Tendinitis

Prevent the Onset of Chronic Inflammatory Related Diseases with HBOT

  • Some studies show that HBOT attenuates Cancer Risk & Progression
  • Ameliorates Diabetic Conditions Linked to Inflammation
  • Reduces Risk of Atherosclerosis, Heart Attack & Stroke
