4 Benefits of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Written By Total Health Center on January 17, 2019

While hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) might seem like a novel approach to wellness, it’s actually been well-established as a modality for treating decompression sickness in scuba divers since the 1940s. 

Since then, however, oxygen therapy has been cleared by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat the following conditions, among others:

  • Anemia

  • Burns

  • Crushing injury

  • Any skin or bone infection causing sudden tissue death

  • Wounds that won’t heal, like ulcers caused by diabetes

  • Injuries caused by radiation

  • Deafness

  • Vision problems

As you might determine from this list, hyperbaric oxygen therapy is assistive in resolving conditions caused or exacerbated by inflammation, one of the leading causes of poor health.


Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy and Your Health

Hyperbaric oxygen treatment involves breathing pure oxygen over a series of relaxing sessions that can help:

  • Normalize tissue oxygen levels in injured areas

  • Increase blood flow and encourage the growth of new blood vessels

  • Increase the ability of the body to resist infection and destroy bacteria

  • Reduce inflammation

These positive health benefits can be useful in the complementary treatment of a number of disorders ranging from autism and dementia to soft tissue injuries and infections.

During HBOT, you’ll inhale pure oxygen while relaxing in a comfortable pressurized chamber.

Because of the increased pressure, more oxygen is transported to your blood, which distributes it throughout your body to stimulate healing through increased stem cells and growth factors.
