Mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Improves Healing and Function
Increased oxygen levels in the blood plasma gives the body tissues the ability to become more concentrated with oxygen creating a more effective environment to support normal healing and cell function.
In addition to helping patients heal post-surgery and athletes recover from injuries and fatigue, Mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy can provide effective treatment for some medical conditions. It helps to reduce hypoxic areas (insufficient oxygen for function) of the body to improve metabolic function of cells, support and strengthen immune response and enhance normal healing processes.
Why will I need Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?
Oxygen is carried to the cells where it is the vital ingredient in the healing process. This treatment can decrease the amount of scar tissue, bruising and swelling visible after surgery and decreases post-operative inflammation and infection. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy before and after surgery helps to heal wounds and accelerates recovery.
How many treatments will I need?
Treatment protocol is dependent on individual cases and histories. Most treatment requires an initial concentration period and then further assessment and prescription relevant to the initial response to Hyperbaric Therapy and other modalities.
What are the benefits?
Often a patient’s main concern is getting back to work quickly. Mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy will assist in post-surgical recovery and healing by decreasing swelling and bruising associated with surgery.
More and more health professionals are now recommending mild hyperbaric oxygen therapy to help patients make a more rapid recovery after surgery.
