Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Q&A
What is hyperbaric oxygen therapy?
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a technology that uses increased air pressure to promote better oxygenation of the body and to treat a wide range of underlying illnesses and diseases.
Normally, your body transports oxygen via the hemoglobin of the red blood cells. During hyperbaric oxygen therapy, you lay in a highly pressured chamber that super-saturates your tissues and organs with oxygen and enhances your overall blood circulation.
Applewood Chiropractic features a hyperbaric chamber on-site to support your health and wellness. The chiropractic team can evaluate your medical history and existing health to determine if you’re a candidate for hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
What can hyperbaric oxygen therapy treat?
The increased oxygen and blood circulation can improve circulation through your body, especially in crucial areas like your brain.
The team at Applewood Chiropractic may recommend hyperbaric oxygen therapy as a treatment for:
- Brain injuries
- Cerebral palsy
- Open wounds
- Thermal burns
- Air and gas embolisms
You may also benefit from hyperbaric oxygen therapy if you experience a brown recluse spider bite or have smoke inhalation from a house fire.
People of all ages, including children and the elderly, can use hyperbaric oxygen therapy as part of their treatment plan. Even if you’re otherwise healthy, you may be a candidate for this treatment to improve your overall wellness and reduce muscle fatigue from sports and exercise.
Those living in the high altitudes of Colorado can also benefit from regular hyperbaric oxygen therapy to address acute mountain sickness and improve the overall oxygen levels of your body.
Is hyperbaric oxygen therapy safe?
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy boasts an exceptional safety record. Some people do experience some mild discomfort during or after treatment because of the increased air pressure. That may feel similar to the increased pressure in your ear when flying at high altitudes.
If you have any issues during your treatment, you can discuss them with the team at Applewood Chiropractic. They monitor your oxygen levels throughout your treatment to ensure your safety.
