Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
At Back to Function you can experience the incredible healing potential of oxygen under pressure. The idea was first developed through scuba diving when divers reported feeling refreshed and invigorated. Today, medical studies on the healing properties of hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) triggered this therapy’s growth beyond the diving world. HBOT can help your system to detoxify, reduce inflammation, stimulate a healing response and improve circulation. Whether you’re living with an existing condition, looking to heal faster, or searching for the preventative health benefits of oxygen, BTF’s hyperbaric oxygen chamber can help you!
How Does Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Work?
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) works in an incredibly simple, yet effective way. By taking oxygen and placing it under greater than normal pressure in the chamber, we are able to push oxygen into your blood plasma, tissues, and body fluids; literally super-oxygenating your entire system! The process of HBOT is based on basic physics laws (that you probably forgot all about after high school!)
What Do I Need to Do During a Session?
In a 30- or 60-minute HBOT session, you are breathing concentrated oxygen (we use an oxygen concentrator so you are getting a high dose of clean O2), while resting in a comfortable position. The chamber is very roomy and can fit 2 people (adult + child). Your relaxing session gives you time to breath and rest. Many clients meditate or sleep, but you are also able to read or listen to music on your phone if you wish.
The Benefits of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy:
- Reduce Swelling & Inflammation
- Helps Body Metabolize & Clear Toxins
- Improve Circulation
- Stimulates Production of Body Stem Cells
- Boosts Immune System Function
- Promotes Healing of Injured Tissues
- Helps With Concussion Recovery
Common Effects of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy:
- Increased Mental Clarity and Alertness
- Strengthened Immune System
- Heightened Energy and Physical Performance
- Faster Healing of Injuries and Wounds (including post -surgery)
- Anti-Aging Effects
- Prevention for a Wide Range of Brain Conditions Such as Stroke and Alzheimer’s
- Improved Sleep
- Decreased Anxiety and Stress
- Reduces Jet Lag
HBOT serves to facilitate a speedier resumption to pre-injury levels as well as improve the short and long term prognosis of an injury.
What is Targeted Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?
Targeted Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (t-HBOT) is the utilization of low level light therapy (LLLT) during your HBOT. LLLT acts as a vasodilator by the release of nitric oxide, which increases blood flow to local tissue. As the LLLT dilates the blood vessels, HBOT acts to oxygenate the area more efficiently, which rapidly accelerates healing and regeneration of the tissues. This allows us to focus the healing effects of HBOT to the specific areas of the body where healing is needed most, allowing for better function, performance and overall recovery.
