Osteomyelitis Treatment

Osteomyelitis Treatment

An inflammation of bone, caused by an infection, can be painful and debilitating. HBOT for osteomyelitis may be the treatment you need.

Can hyperbaric oxygen therapy help patients recover from plastic surgery?

Osteomyelitis is a rare but serious condition. The bones are infected by a type of staph bacteria, and there are several risk factors that could weaken a person’s immune system and make them more susceptible to the condition. Traditional treatments revolve around stopping the infection, which means antibiotics in most cases but surgery for some.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy may provide an alternative treatment that can provide relief with less invasive measures. If the traditional solutions aren’t providing results, HBOT may be an effective option. Hyperbaric oxygen improves the penetration of certain antibiotics into the bone and stimulates osteogenesis (bone growth). Contact us today to learn more about your options.

Surgical debridement and antibiotics are capable of curing this condition in 70 – 80% of cases. But some patients don’t respond to the traditional treatments.

The earlier a patient is diagnosed, the more effective treatment can be – especially when it is a multidisciplinary treatment.

Osteomyelitis can occur after surgeries or traumatic wounds, and drug use, diabetes, and foot ulcers increase a patient’s risk.

HBOT can stimulate the production of osteoblasts and osteoclasts, which are critical for bone growth and healing.

Oxygen is essential for cell metabolism and the reparative process. Increasing your oxygen levels increases the growth factor production.

Hyperbaric oxygen can increase the body’s ability to fight infections and lessen the inflammatory responses.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy has the potential to provide results for patients suffering from osteomyelitis. It increases oxygen levels in the infected bone, and improves the oxygen saturation of the plasma surrounding the infected area, which is known to encourage healing. And, since hyperbaric oxygen is bacteriostatic (it stops bacteria), it can be very beneficial in this situation.
