Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is one of our latest additions to the AcuVision Clinic and part of our OxyVision Therapy Programs.

HBOT involves breathing oxygen in a pressurized chamber in which the atmospheric pressure is raised up to three times higher than normal. Under these conditions, your lungs can gather up to three times more oxygen than would be possible breathing oxygen at normal air pressure.

Your body’s tissues need an adequate supply of oxygen to function. When tissue is injured, it may require more oxygen to heal. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy increases the amount of oxygen dissolved in your blood. An increase in blood oxygen may improve oxygen delivery for vital tissue function to help fight infection or minimize injury.
There are now over 120 reported conditions for which hyperbaric oxygen therapy has been shown to be effective and beneficial according to numerous published medical studies.

What Conditions is it used for?

Injury and Sports Rehab

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy helps athletes at all skill levels with injury and sports rehab.

Many sports injuries involve strains and sprains, causing swelling and edema – compressing blood vessels and restricting the vital flow of oxygen-carrying plasma and red blood cells to the injury site.

HBOT may promote faster healing in common sports injuries and help with:

Neurological Damage

Among neurological conditions, HBOT has been evaluated among patients of stroke, cerebral palsy, injuries of the brain and spinal cord and multiple other neurological conditions.

HBOT is well described for many neurological conditions and help with:
