Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Oxygen is the key to wound healing. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a treatment in which you breathe 100 percent oxygen while enclosed in a monitored, specialized chamber at greater-than-normal atmospheric pressure. While breathing pure oxygen, your blood plasma becomes saturated, carrying 20 to 30 times the normal amount of oxygen to the body's natural wound-healing mechanisms, which are oxygen dependent, and able to function more efficiently.
Our state-of-the-art hyperbaric chamber is designed with your comfort in mind. The clear acrylic chamber offers total visibility and freedom of movement, which is especially important for anyone who suffers from confinement anxiety. While undergoing treatment, you can recline, watch television, listen to the radio or take a nap.
