HBOT heals Sores, Injuries and Non-healing Wounds

HBOT heals Sores, Injuries and Non-healing Wounds

Non-healing wounds, wherever they occur, can prevent us from living a full and active life. Bay Area Hyperbarics has healed hundreds of patients with stubborn and non-healing wounds over the last 20 years. We have healed toe and foot wounds, mouth and throat sores, ulcers and sores on breasts, legs, buttocks, muscle and tissue, bladder and vaginal wall wounds, intestinal wounds and rectal fissures, sores in the skull, chest lesions, and problems with fingers and eyes.

HBOT helps healing by regrowing blood vessels and nerves and stimulating growth factors that supply the body with a renewed ability to heal. It kills infections (anaerobic bacteria) and supercharges antibiotics. It regrows new healthy bone, tissue and skin.

Illnesses and other problems such as diabetes, paralysis, strokes, injuries, vascular disease, ageing, medications, often contribute to the difficulty of healing some wounds. Fortunately hyperbaric oxygen therapy can help.

Patients’ Experiences

54-year-old woman in a wheelchair
Mary Ann, 54
Recovered from paralysis caused by a truck accident 10 years earlier
Ten years previous to her visit to Bay Area Hyperbarics, Mary Ann had been hit by a drunk driver. Sadly, she was paralysed below her shoulders, and her source of mobility was an electric wheelchair. Regardless of her disabilities, she’s a smart, attractive and articulate woman who directs the choirs in her church and teaches to private music students. Her problem was that she developed bedsores on her buttocks that would not heal for months. The sores continued to worsen and got infected so badly that she developed a bone infection (called osteomyelitis). Her husband was worried about her infections and brought her in for HBOT. After treatment, her bone infection and sores healed completely. She and her husband were very pleased.

Healed a two inch long chest wound where a tumor had been removed.
Arun had ambitions to attend junior college after high school. However, he developed a tumor on the left side of his chest wall just over his upper ribs. Arun’s physician used radiation to treat the tumor area. Fortunately, this eliminated the tumor. However, it also resulted in a two inch long non-healing chest wound where the tumor had been.

Healed a wound and numbness in his foot
Jesus is an active contractor. He also has diabetes. One day a pallet fell on his food, causing an open wound that would not heal. After several weeks, much of the wound had closed up, but there was still an area on the top of his foot that was infected and would not heal. In addition, his foot remained numb, even where the skin had healed. The hyperbaric treatments Jesus received, healed the rest of the sore on his foot, but it also healed the numbness!
