Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy: A Treatment Option for Many Conditions

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy: A Treatment Option for Many Conditions

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) involves breathing oxygen in one our pressurized oxygen chambers here at Health+Plus Clinic. This process encourages oxygen to be quickly absorbed and dissolved into the bloodstream at an expedited rate.

Hyperbaric chambers are simple enclosures which can be pressurized to allow the person inside to experience atmospheric pressures greater than normal environmental pressures. This allows concentrated oxygen to deeply penetrate the blood, tissues, and organs of the body which can rapidly accelerate healing of all tissues.

Especially those affected by most mental and psychological trauma, mental conditions, physical ailments, surgery and scar tissue, burns/burned tissue, ligament and tendon injuries, open sores, macular degeneration and a variety of conditions, including:

  • Slow-healing wounds
  • Carbon monoxide poisoning
  • Diabetic foot ulcers
  • Radiation injuries
  • Shortness of Breath
  • Decreased Lung Function
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Autism
  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Hearing loss
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Heart Disease
  • Stroke
  • Immune Suppression

How it Works

HBOT involves breathing 100% oxygen in a pressurized chamber. The pressure inside the chamber is higher than normal atmospheric pressure. This higher pressure causes the lungs to collect more oxygen. Thus, getting more oxygen to the tissues that need it can help the body heal and fight certain infections.

The extra oxygen in the blood can also help to:

  • Promote the growth of new blood vessels
  • Increase the production of collagen
  • Increase the production of white blood cells
  • Kill harmful bacteria
  • Reduce inflammation
  • Improve the function of the immune system


The benefits of HBOT include:

  • Faster healing of wounds
  • Improved blood flow to the brain
  • Reduced inflammation
  • Increased energy levels
  • Improved mental clarity
  • Better sleep
  • Reduced pain
  • Improved hearing
  • Increased vision

How We Do It

HBOT treatments typically last for 60 minutes. You will breathe pure oxygen in our pressurized chamber. There are two types of HBOT chambers: monoplace chambers and multiplace chambers. Monoplace chambers are used for individuals, while multiplace chambers can accommodate multiple people.

HBOT is a safe and effective treatment for a variety of conditions. If you are considering HBOT, contact us at our Oak Grove location today. Just call 816-625-4497 or use our contact page
