What is Hyperbaric Therapy?
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is an oxygen therapy that is used by some of the world’s most elite athletes to speed up recovery, this process requires the use of a total body chamber that has its atmospheric pressure increased and controlled. This oxygen-rich environment enhances the body’s natural healing processes and promotes recovery from strenuous exercise and muscle injury.
- Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is a safe method of delivering more oxygen to the body at the cellular level.
- Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy provides the optimal environment for the body to carry out vital cell processes, thereby increasing the capacity for the body to heal itself.
- Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy utilizes filtered pressurized ambient air to dissolve oxygen directly into the plasma, cerebral and spinal fluids, flooding tissues and vital organs with oxygen.
- Hyperbaric Therapy allows for healing at the cellular level, which is critical for changes to be made which in turn affect healthy tissue formation, making it possible for healthier organs and ultimately a healthier body overall.
Oxygen Treatment has been used to establish if the expected time taken for a sports injury to heal can be reduced as measured against the estimated time of a physiotherapist. On average across a variety of 20 of the most common ailments; injuries healed 70% faster when treated with a combination of physiotherapy and Oxygen Treatment.
