What is Hyperbaric Medicine?

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) delivers oxygen, under pressure, to tissues in the body. This action increases the levels of oxygen in the plasma, lymphatic fluid and cerebrospinal fluid which stimulates healing. 

Increasing oxygen levels combats microbial infections by activating white blood cells.

This helps to rid the body of bacteria, viruses and yeast. It also helps reduce inflammation, oxidative stress and free radical damage while simultaneously stimulating blood vessel and collagen formation.  

In addition, there are many animal and clinical examples showing the benefits of hyperbaric medicine in promoting neurological recovery through axon regeneration following nerve trauma.
