A once misunderstood alternative medical treatment, hyperbaric oxygen therapy now plays an important role in many hospitals all over the world and is recommended by reputable organizations such as the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for a variety of benefits. While only a handful of patients in the early 70’s experienced its rejuvenating effects, today researchers estimate that thousands of Americans turn to hyperbaric oxygen therapy for relief from a wide range of concerns, from ulcers to side effects from radiation therapy.

However, if you’ve only just heard of hyperbaric oxygen therapy and the benefits you may be able to achieve by securing this treatment, you likely have a few questions regarding what it entails, what it is like to undergo treatment and where you can find a reputable medical center to provide this care near you.

What is hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT)?
Oxygen plays a central role in most life on planet Earth, and as humans, we often don’t consider how this vital element contributes to our overall health and wellness. One of the primary benefits of HBOT is that it allows patients a way to increase the amount of oxygen that is carried to all parts of their body.

Under normal atmospheric conditions, red blood cells do most of the work to ensure that every part of the body receives its necessary supply of oxygen. However, with HBOT, there is a massive increase in how efficiently oxygen travels in the body. This is why medical professionals turn to HBOT for its on and off-label uses.

HBO treatment can:
• Aid in wound healing by stimulating key cell growth
• Help patients suffering from Alzheimer’s, ADD/ADHD, ALS, migraine headaches and more
• Increase the amount of oxygen vital tissues receive
• Relieve symptoms associated with fibromyalgia, Lyme disease and sports-related injuries
• Reverse damage from heart attacks, strokes and vascular disease.

What is hyperbaric oxygen therapy treatment like?
The environments in modern hyperbaric chambers are comfortable and spacious while including precautions for patient safety. During your treatment, you’ll be immersed in a 100-percent oxygen environment and monitored via treatment panel controls for the duration of the session. The only side effects you’re likely to encounter are ear popping due to the pressure of the chamber, and in rare and extreme cases, decompression sickness.

In today’s medical facilities, patients can sit up and move about in order to best relax during their treatment. Other activities are also encouraged, as most sessions last for around one hour or more. While undergoing HBO treatment, you can sleep, catch up on your favorite magazine, read a book or even tackle important work assignments on your computer.
