Hyperbaric Chamber Q & A

How does a hyperbaric chamber work?

Inside a hyperbaric chamber, the air pressure is three times higher than normal air pressure. When you lie inside the chamber for a treatment session, this increased pressure allows your lungs to absorb more oxygen than is possible under normal circumstances.

Your blood carries this abundance of oxygen through your body, infusing your cells with more oxygen. This process helps fight bacteria in your system and stimulate your body’s innate growth factors and stem cells.

As a result, hyperbaric oxygen therapy inside a hyperbaric chamber promotes and accelerates the healing process after an injury, surgery, or another acute or chronic condition.

What conditions respond well to hyperbaric oxygen therapy?

In combination with your comprehensive treatment plan, hyperbaric oxygen therapy is an effective treatment option for a variety of conditions, including:

  • Infections and injuries of the skin and bones
  • Diabetic wounds that don’t heal on their own
  • Burns
  • Sports injuries
  • Arthritis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Chronic pain syndrome
  • Migraines and headaches
  • Multiple sclerosis (MS)
  • Lyme disease
  • Decompression sickness
  • Concussions

Dr. Gorski often recommends HBOT for men and women as part of a complete treatment plan to help you recover, or to manage a chronic condition.

What can I expect during a hyperbaric oxygen therapy session?

Elite Family Chiropractic has the latest, state-of-the-art hyperbaric chamber, the Respiro270®, which is designed for improved airflow and exceptional patient comfort.

HBOT treatments generally last 60-90 minutes, during which you lie comfortably in the hyperbaric chamber and breathe as you normally would.

It’s a noninvasive, relaxing therapy that offers many health benefits. Depending on your condition, Dr. Gorski may recommend a number of HBOT treatment sessions to help your body heal.

What are the health benefits of hyperbaric oxygen therapy?

There are numerous health benefits of HBOT, including:

  • Increased energy levels
  • Reduced stress and anxiety
  • Strengthened immune system
  • Improved sleep
  • Detoxification of your blood
  • Skin revitalization and increased collagen production
  • Reduced swelling and inflammation
  • Improved blood flow
  • Reduced infection
  • Accelerated repair of injured tissue
  • Improved concentration and focus

When you experience reduced pain and increased healing as a result of HBOT, you may also reduce your need for prescription pain medications and enjoy an increased function in your daily activities.

If you’ve tried to manage chronic health conditions with other methods, you have wounds that won’t heal as a result of diabetic ulcers, or you suffer a sports injury, hyperbaric chamber sessions may be beneficial to you. Schedule a consultation online or call today to learn more.
