Hyperbaric Healing: Medical Treatment attempts to Help Unique Injuries Heal

For Frisco resident Ryan Neufeld, a former professional football player, hyperbaric therapy was something he had always heard about but never tried. After doing some research on the medical treatment, however, Neufeld was quick to give the rehabilitation option a shot. Hyperbaric therapy is a unique kind of treatment in which patients are treated with…

Neurology and Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

    Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) for Neurology Approximately 1 billion people, of all ages, are currently affected by neurological disorders, with an estimated 6.8 million deaths that occur every year world-wide. This staggering statistical evidence illustrates the substantial impact of neurological disorders throughout the world. New evidence presents how hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is helping…

Do Hyperbaric Oxygen Treaments Heal Chronic Wounds?

Chronic Wounds A chronic wound is a disruption in the body’s tissue that is most commonly associated with the loss of skin and the underlying tissue, the loss of muscle, or the loss of bone. When there is a lack of oxygen it makes it difficult for the wound to heal. Hyperbaric Oxygen therapy (HBOT)…

How Does Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) Work?

What is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) HBOT is a medical treatment that enhances the body’s healing process by providing 100% pure oxygen in a chamber where atmospheric pressure is increased in a controlled environment. The air we normally breathe only contains 19-21% oxygen. During treatment, patients breathe 100% pure oxygen. The increased oxygen intake provided…

Aging and Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

What is Aging? So, what is aging and how do you define it? Aging appears to be a genetically programmed event. Biologically, scientists have found that the chromosomes in our cells progressively shorten each time the cell divides. Eventually, the chromosomes can shorten no further and stop dividing. When this happens, the cells become senescent…

Anti-Aging and Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Age-related diseases are a growing concern world-wide. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) has been shown, in some studies, to help combat degeneration by contributing to the regeneration of tissue and blood vessels. HBOT stimulates the development of new blood vessels in areas of the body where circulation is compromised and is utilized by some physicians to…
