Although Hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber Therapy sounds like something out of a science fiction movie, it’s manifold benefits are very much a reality for patients. Synergy Sports Wellness Institute™ has frequently used this modality to treat athletes and people with ADD, joint pain, headaches and more. To provide an accurate source of information about this therapy, we’ve compiled some of the many benefits of a Hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber.

The Benefits of Hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber TherapyHow does Hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber Therapy work?

At Synergy Sports Wellness Institute™, we utilize a tube-shaped Hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber that patients lie down in during each therapy session. Once the session starts, the patient will begin to safely breath in a higher concentration of oxygen. Since the air pressure in the chamber is also more concentrated than normal, their lungs will retain more oxygen. The bloodstream then caries the increased oxygen throughout your body to aid various conditions.

Depending on the needs of the patient, the number of successive treatments can vary. Forms of this practice have been used since the year 1662 because of its many benefits. To best treat patients, our providers utilize the most cutting-edge technology that has been improved upon for decades.

What does the Hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber Improve?

One of the most common applications of the Hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber treatment is accelerated recovery time. Whether or not you’re an athlete, you shouldn’t have to be physically limited because of an injury. This recovery process increases ATP, the molecule that human’s use for energy, which can help eliminate fatigue and soreness.

Since there are many different benefits to an increased amount of consumed oxygen, this process improves a wide variety of conditions. The following are some of the conditions that can be healed or improved by Hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber Therapy at Synergy Sport Wellness Institute™.

Joint pain
Sports injury
Sleeping disorders
Skin disorders
Pre/post-surgery
Body detoxification
ADD/ADHD
Arthritis
Asthma
Chronic fatigue
Anti-aging
Many more!

Our mission is to help people realize their true physical potential and hyperbaric oxygen therapy has been an excellent tool for making recovery easier. If you would like to speed up your recovery time or ask any questions about this treatment, call our office at 404.352.8900 today.

Dr. Michael Hatrak, owner and operator of Synergy Sports Wellness Institute™ and Synergy Release Sports, was honored with a Super Bowl ring for his long association with the Philadelphia Eagles and his role in treating the team during Super Bowl LII.

This February, Atlanta physician Dr. Michael Hatrak was privileged to serve as a biomechanical specialist and injury consultant for the Philadelphia Eagles during Super Bowl LII. On June 14th, 2018, his dedication and excellence was recognized at a ring ceremony where he received a Super Bowl ring alongside the team and other key personnel. “The Eagles are a great team to work with,” says Dr. Hatrak, “and it’s an incredible honor to help them win their first Super Bowl.”

Dr. Hatrak and his colleague Dr. Andrew Potter worked with the team during Super Bowl week as biomechanical specialists and injury consultants. The game was a tightknit, back-and-forth affair decided by a Brandon Graham strip sack of Patriots quarterback Tom Brady that occurred late in the fourth quarter. “As a lifelong Eagles fan, it meant a tremendous amount to be able to witness the Eagles claim their first Super Bowl title and their first league championship since 1960,” said Dr. Hatrak. “It’s an incredible honor to be a part of such a special moment in Eagles history.”
