Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a proven way to treat a wide range of conditions and injuries, from traumatic brain injuries (TBI) to common sports injuries. It is an effective treatment because it supports the body’s healing processes, helps block harmful bacteria, strengthens the body’s immune system, and promotes the creation of collagen and skin cells.
When a wound is taking longer than usual to heal, the tissues are likely starved of the oxygen they need to repair themselves. HBOT brings oxygen-rich plasma to your tissues, reducing the damage and swelling from the wound. The pressure in the HBOT chamber also increases the amount of oxygen in the blood, combating inflammation.
