Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Experience the healing effects of oxygen under pressure.

How Does Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Work?

Hyperbaric oxygen creates a pressurized environment to dramatically enhance oxygen uptake into the body and brain. Increased oxygenation leads to faster healing times, better recovery and reduced inflammation.

Why Should I Use Hyperbaric Oxygen?

Faster Healing,
Better Performance

Enhancing oxygen uptake improves ability for the body to heal itself. Faster and better recovery from sprains, tears & workouts. Improves concentration & cognitive performance.

Reduce Inflammation

Increases energy levels, immune function, and regenerates tissue by releasing stem cells. 

Proven Safe & Effective

Proven effective in treating concussions, strokes, autism, infections, Lyme disease, & enhances recovery after surgery.

What Should I Expect?

Each session is 65 minutes long. Comfy clothes are generally preferred, as you will be laying in a padded, relaxed chamber. Patients typically read a book, listen to music, watch a movie, meditate or sleep!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Hyperbaric oxygen is used to treat all conditions which benefit from increased tissue oxygen availability, as well as infections where it can be used for its antibiotic properties, either as the primary therapy, or in conjunction with other drugs.

The most common side effect is barotrauma to the ears and sinuses caused by the change in pressure. To minimize this risk, patients learn techniques to promote adequate clearing of the ears during compression or tubes may be inserted in the ears. Occasionally some patients may experience changes in their vision during their treatment period. These changes are usually minor and temporary. A rare side effect is oxygen toxicity which is caused by administering too much oxygen.

If you have any cold or flu symptoms, fever, sinus or nasal congestion, or chest congestion.
– If there is a possibility that you may be pregnant.
– If there has been a change in any of your medications.
– If you have an opened wound.
– If you have skipped a meal prior to your HBOT treatment.
– If you are diabetic and did not take your insulin prior to your treatment.
– If you have any concerns or anxiety.
When cells in the brain die, either from trauma or lack of oxygen, blood plasma leaks out into surrounding brain tissue causing swelling and reducing blood flow. These otherwise normal cells go dormant because they can’t function without the appropriate amount of oxygen. HBOT dramatically increases the oxygen carried in the blood plasma, making oxygen available to heal damaged capillary walls, preventing plasma leakage and reducing swelling. As the swelling decreases, blood flow can be restored to the dormant tissue (neovascularization) and these cells then have the potential to function again.

Patients are accepted either by self referral or by physician referral. Patients are evaluated by our staff and treated based on their specific needs. To schedule an evaluation, please call us at 952-213-6386.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is prescribed by a physician and performed under medical supervision. Although there are minor risks like all medical treatments, overall hyperbaric oxygen therapy is extremely safe. The risks will be discussed with you before you sign your consent form for therapy.

1-5 Sessions:
Improve cellular energy and optimizes tissue functioning. Those with residual carbon monoxide (i.e., smokers) or with mild anemia can show immediate benefits with cellular energy. Inflammatory markers can decrease considerably and begin a natural repair process.
5-10 Sessions:
Typically used for acute injuries with soft tissue damage, particularly if pain is involved.
10-20 Sessions:
Use with more serious acute injuries or chronic injuries.
20-40 Sessions:
Commonly used for major tissue damage and when new tissue is required, through HBOT’s regenerative stem cell properties.
