What is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is a natural medical treatment which enhances the body’s healing process by breathing oxygen in a moderately pressurized chamber. When oxygen is administered under pressure, it dissolves easier into our plasma, making oxygen more readily available for use by the body. Although the history of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy dates back to 1662, it is only recently that this therapy is finally emerging as a major medical treatment.
How does Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy help with injury?
When our bodies experience an injury, its initial response is to become inflamed at the injury site. This inflammation is our body’s way of preventing infection and allowing the body to heal the injury. During this time, oxygen flow to the injury site may decrease, which slow the healing process. When we utilize Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, oxygen is able to reach the wound site faster because our plasma is able to carry the oxygen throughout our bodies, allowing healing to take place at greater rates.
Is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Safe?
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is a noninvasive therapy that is used to treat a variety of issues. Synergy Sports Wellness Institute utilized Mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy that reaches 4.2 PSI. You may experience popping in your ears as a result of the pressure change. This is normal and identical to the experience of flying in an airplane. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy sessions are comfortable, and the pressurization of the chamber is gradual and relaxed, allowing plenty of time to equalize your ears. The chamber is warm and equipped with pillows. Most people nap, read, or listen to music during sessions.
