Hyperbaric Chamber

Hyperbaric medicine, also known as hyperbaric oxygen therapy is the medical use of pure oxygen at a higher than atmospheric pressure. This increased pressure, combined with an increase in oxygen to 100 percent, dissolves oxygen in the blood plasma and in all body cells, tissues and fluids at up to 10 times normal concentration. Hyperbaric medicine has recently become more prevalent in recent years for the treatment of chronic degenerative health problems. Additionally, anecdotal evidence has been strong linking hyperbaric treatments to improved athletic performance and recovery.

The many expected benefits for hyperbaric medicine include:

  • Increase of oxygen to tissues 25 times normal levels
  • Stimulates production of body stem cells
  • Boosts immune function and increases ability to fight infection
  • Decreases swelling and inflammation
  • Detoxification
  • Promotes regeneration of injured tissues
  • Reduces fatigue from chronic inadequate oxygen supply to cells and tissues
  • Reduces jet lag related fatigue
  • Decreases ligament healing time
