We have treated dozens of children with ASD and have seen a significant improvement in their quality of life.
A significant body of research, including MRIs, videos, imaging and photos, show the value of HBOT to help reverse the effects of aging.
HBOT has proven to be an effective therapy, coupled with antibiotics and debridement, increasing the cure rate from 50% to 86%.
HBOT has been shown not to worsen cancer, and it typically mitigates the side effects of chemotherapy, such as “chemo brain.”
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy has ben shown to remove carboxyhemoglobin faster than any other treatment, including oxygen alone.
It is critical that patients receive hyperbaric oxygen within 24 hours of an injury causing CRAO in order to reverse it completely.
HBOT works best for children who develop cerebral palsy due to a brain injury caused by a lack of oxygen.
Studies show that between a 78% and 88% of Chron’s patients who receive hyperbaric oxygen therapy experience significant improvement.
HBOT decreases the severity of symptoms and increases the quality of life for CFS patients
We have seen numerous cases of chronic pain from dozens of underlying conditions resolved.
Hyperbarics saves many lives when applied to patients with compartment syndrome.
After HBOT, patients' VAFS, FSS and FQLSHBOT scores are found to improve. HBOT decreases symptom severity and increases life quality.
The typical protocol for compromised skin grafts or flaps is to start with two treatments per day to salvage as much tissue as early as possible.
Physicians increasingly refer HBOT for patients with TBI, because studies with brain imaging show angiogenesis and neuroplasticity.
HBOT is approved by Medicare and reimbursed by a number of private insurance companies for crush injuries.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy dissolves arterial gas (nitrogen) that can cause embolisms.
Many FMS patients show brain scan lesions. Studies show that HBOT heals these lesions, leading to dramatic increases in brain function.
Patients with FASD show an improvement in verbal memory, impulse control and reaction time composites from HBOT.
Studies show that HBOT kills bacterial agents that cause pulmonary fibrosis, and helps heal radiation-induced fibrosis.
HBOT oxygenates hypoxic tissues, which can prevent amputation and heal gangrene.
A number of studies have shown that HBOT as an adjunct to antibiotics, heals intracranial abscesses at a much higher rate.
HBOT decreases pelvic pain and urgency, improves voiding patterns, and increases functional bladder capacity.
HBOT often resolves migraines in one treatment, whereas patients with intervening neurological problems can require additional intervention.
While hyperbarics does not cure MS, our patients find that regular HBOT helps them manage their symptoms. Give us a call.
Healthcare providers recommend patients to hypebarics to heal non-healing wounds more than any other medical condition.
Studies show that the introduction of oxygen-under-pressure often reverses and heals necrotizing infections.
HBOT improves survival, reduces overall severity, and decreases the extent of necrosis, in severe pancreatitis.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy decreases neuroinflammation, promotes neurogenesis and improves mitochondrial biogenesis
Research and our own experience shows that hyperbarics most often reverses the effects of radiation damage to the abdomen and pelvis.
Medicare, the AMA and the FDA support HBOT as a proven treatment for Hemorrhagic Cystitis and 76% of patients show significant resolution of their HRC after HBOT.
HBOT halts ongoing radiation damage to breast tissues. It stimulates angiogenesis in hypoxic tissue, correcting ischemias after mastectomies.
HBOT halts the loss of teeth and prevents worsening of symptoms such as bone loss, infections, and skin and gum sores.
Radiation damage to bones and tissues can be healed by hyperbarics, which super-oxygenates tissues to build new blood vessels and tissue.
Ninety percent of patients show significant improvement from rectal bleeding, diarrhea and rectal pain refractory to other treatments.
HBOT can help stabilize patients’ visual acuity, visual field, and ERG responses.
Half the people who have sudden hearing loss will recover within two weeks if they receive hyperbaric treatment.
Professional, olympic and casual athletes regularly see us for HBOT for recovery.
55% of stroke participants experience significant improvement after HBOT, while 72% have at least a mild improvement
Leading research shows consistent positive results for HBOT as a treatment for severe anemia.
HBOT delivers oxygen to marginal, ischemic wounds and accelerates wound healing.
HBOT decreases aptosis (cell death), reduces spinal inflammation and increases cellular regrowth in the central nervous system.
Tissues surrounding burns often become hypoxic. Hyperbarics oxygenates both burned and surrounding tissue, so viable tissue can heal.
