Mobile HBOT in Denver: Helping You Heal From Home
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy, or HBOT for short, is an increasingly accessible treatment option for a wide range of ailments and injuries. And it’s no wonder why this FDA-approved therapy is becoming more mainstream. From stimulating new stem cell growth to helping heal damaged tissues, these pressurized chambers can offer you a long list of health benefits. If you’re interested in HBOT in Denver, you’ve come to the right place.
What is hyperbaric oxygen therapy?
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a research-backed medical treatment that involves delivering increased oxygen in a pressurized chamber to injured or inflamed tissue. This oxygen is delivered to the tissue at a level 400% deeper than what our normal blood supply can penetrate.
During a therapy session, you will lay down in the chamber and breathe normally.
How does HBOT work?
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy follows Henry’s Law, which states that the amount of a given gas (in this case, oxygen) that dissolves in a given type of and volume of liquid (blood) is directionally proportional to the partial pressure of that gas in equilibrium with that liquid.
Henry’s Law confirms oxygen’s solubility in saturating the body’s red blood cell plasma, cerebrospinal fluid, and synovial fluid when inside a pressurized chamber or room.
This, in turn, delivers increased oxygen to the brain, central nervous system, muscles, joints, tissues, and organs. This innovative therapy can then lead to:
- Decreased inflammation
- Improved circulation and blood flow
- The detoxification of diseased tissue
- Shorter recovery times after surgery
- And the production of new stem cells
What does hyperbaric oxygen treat?
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy can be used to treat a wide range of symptoms and conditions. Here at Functional Recovery & Enhancement, we primarily use HBOT to treat the following conditions.
Brain injuries and sports injuries
Our brains impact how we think, feel, and act. And they are as delicate as they are intricate. After injury occurs, the recovery process is often long and difficult. HBOT can help streamline recovery by promoting the body’s innate ability to heal. For mild sports and brain injuries, HBOT alone can restore the body to its full function. For more severe injuries, hyperbaric oxygen therapy is most effective when used in conjunction with additional treatments.
Microbial organisms are responsible for most illnesses. Due to high levels of environmental pollutants and increased preservatives in our foods, our cells can become toxic. When cells become congested with toxins, not enough oxygen can enter and they become predisposed to various diseases. Delivering oxygen-rich blood to cells helps rid the body of harmful bacteria, fungi, microbes, and viruses that cannot survive in oxygen-rich environments.
Wound healing and additional conditions
That’s not all that HBOT can treat though! The FDA has approved hyperbaric oxygen therapy to treat the following conditions: acute traumatic ischemia, air or gas embolisms, anemia that’s resulted in significant blood loss, arterial insufficiency, burns, carbon monoxide poisoning, decompression sickness (also known as “the bends”), gas gangrene, necrotizing soft tissue infections, osteomyelitis, radiation injuries, skin grafts, and some brain and sinus infections.
