How Hyperbarics Helps


Reduces pain and swelling


Helps grow stem cells and send them where they are needed


Down-regulates over 4,000 inflammatory genes


Up-regulates growth hormones


Builds new neurons


Stimulates collagen production


Increases the production of synovial fluid


Regrows new blood vessels and improves blood flow


Stimulates cellular reproduction

Hyperbaric oxygen sessions resolve chronic pain in many parts of the body by augmenting the body’s natural healing powers.

Many of our patients comment that regardless of their original reason for coming in to hyperbarics (HBOT), they find themselves also surprisingly pain free. Whether they experience muscle pain from strenuous workouts, long-standing joint pain, or even arthritis, hyperbaric oxygen therapy has helped reduce and in some cases eliminate their pain. In some cases, patients tell us this is the first time they have been pain-free in decades.
While this experience of pain reduction does not last forever, hypberbaric oxygen therapy does help the body in its natural healing process, which helps decrease and in some cases eliminate pain altogether for an extended period of time. Among these benefits, hyperbaric oxygen therapy down-regulates thousands of genes coded for inflammation, and up-regulates thousands of genes that stimulate growth, such as collagen growth. It also increases the production of stem cells, and mobilizes these stem cells to areas of the body that need them the most.
Tens of thousands of people receive stem cell treatments every year to help repair knees, backs and other body parts crucial in mundane movement. However, stem cells that are generated naturally in the body as a result of hyperbaric oxygen therapy are much more effective at actually healing than stem cells injected into these damaged body parts.
The reason hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) helps heal so many painful areas of the body is because it reduces swelling, down-regulates inflammatory genes by 30%, regrows needed blood vessels, stimulates high cell reproduction and delivers more oxygen and nutrients to tissues, joints and bones. It also heals infections, wounds and sores, peripheral vascular disease, helps reduce pain and heal from over-training and sports injuries, concussions and traumatic brain injuries, just to name a few.
If you are interested in HBOT or would like to know if it can help reduce or eliminate your pain, please call us to find out. We are here to help you.

  • What is Hyperbaric Medicine?
    Hyperbaric medicine, also called hyperbaric oxygen therapy or HBOT, is a medical treatment where a patient sits or lies in pressurized chamber and breathes 100% oxygen. In HBOT, oxygen dissolves into the blood, thus raising the oxygen concentration to very high levels.This increased oxygen is a primary building block for tissues, muscle, and bone repair. Among other benefits, it kicks off cell reproduction, heals injuries and infection more rapidly, and decreases inflammation.
  • Does HBOT kill cancer cells?
    Current research indicates that hyperbaric oxygen does not kill cancer cells. However, there has been a small amount of research indicating that hyperbaric oxygen might reduce the size of certain tumors. Also, there has been a study on mice using hyperbaric oxygen, along with a ketogenic diet, to reduce tumors. Hyperbaric oxygen causes many different healing modalities to kick into gear. Could its effect on strengthening the immune system inhibit the growth of cancer cells? Nobody knows. There are numerous studies conclusively showing that hyperbaric oxygen does not encourage cancer cells or tumors to grow. Some patients claim the hyperbaric oxygen makes them feel a lot more comfortable and functional after chemotherapy and also during healing. Note that some chemotherapy drugs are not to be used with hyperbaric oxygen, as the chemotherapy drugs can be enhanced and thus become toxic. A good hyperbaric oxygen facility (such as Bay Area Hyperbarics) will always call the chemotherapy manufacturer to ensure that hyperbaric oxygen therapy will be helpful and not damaging to the patient.
  • What is the CPT code for HBOT?
    The CPT code for HBOT is G0277.
  • Does Medicare cover HBOT?
    Medicare covers Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for approved conditions, and many insurance companies also cover approved conditions. If your condition is not approved by your insurance, we can discuss our special rates. Give us a call at (408) 356–7438. We are happy to discuss your options with you.
  • Can HBOT help Neuropathy?
    Hyperbaric treatments help heal neuropathy by regrowing small blood vessels and nerves that have died from disease, injuries from radiation and aging. Patients often experience numbness and or pain when they start treatment. Hyperbaric treatments most often bring back sensation and make, for example, walking easier and more enjoyable.
  • Why would a physician consider HBOT?
    A physician would consider using hyperbaric chamber therapy under a variety of situations. Physicians most typically refer patients to hyperbarics when the patient is not healing with traditional medical interventions and hyperbaric chamber therapy is approved by Medicare for this condition. Some patients experience significant unresolved pain and unremitting disease states that the mechanisms of hyperbaric oxygen therapy in a hyperbaric chamber are known to affect, such as the down regulation of inflamatory genes. For an example, some patients have experienced severe, unremitting hives with itching, which did not improve with any specialists interventions. Some physicians will consider hyperbaric chamber therapy if the patient has no other good avenues for improving their failing health, and they know the hyperbaric chamber therapy is safe and will not harm the patient.
  • What is Hypebaric Oxygen Therapy?
    Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HB0T) is a medical treatment where you inhale 100% oxygen in a chamber with increased atmospheric pressure. HBOT injects 400x the oxygen into your tissues and bones and mobilizes stem cells. It regrows healthy tissues in the brain, blood vessels, skin and bones. It also reduces pain and swelling, and speeds recovery. It is simple, effective and painless.
