An airtight chamber filled with concentrated oxygen, that is pressurized to increase oxygen in the blood to accelerate the repair of tissues and restore normal body function.
Hyperbaric Chamber safely increases the oxygen uptake within the body by raising the barometric pressure within an enclosure. Hyperbaric Chamber is based on physics which states that more gas can be dissolved in a liquid by increasing the pressure of the gas. In Hyperbaric Chamber the liquid is the blood and plasma of the body and the gas is oxygen. So in essence we are putting more oxygen into the body for healing, restorative and regenerative powers.
Our body needs energy and 90% of our energy comes from oxygen and 10% comes from food and water. Our body consumes about 6 pounds of oxygen per day. Anaerobic bacteria, toxins, fungi and viruses all have one thing in common. None can survive in an oxygen rich environment. Oxygen feeds the body, supports the immune system, destroys toxic substances and promotes new cell growth. Oxygen is the fuel required by our body for the proper operation of all major systems.
Hyperbaric Chamber takes about one hour per treatment. The number of treatments will depend upon the patient's response and the amount or degree of injury, trauma or condition being treated. Many benefits to the body are noticed when more oxygen and circulation are realized.
There are many professional athletes that travel with their own Hyperbaric Chamber unit. They are able to recover much quicker from injury due to swelling, dehydration and jetlag. As elite athletes they need to perform at an optimal level sometimes on a daily basis and Hyperbaric Chamber helps them in that regard.
