Benefits from Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a safe way to alter the inflammatory process to help wound healing. It minimizes pain, scarring, swelling, and inflammation in the tissue, and has an antibacterial effect. Patients who have this therapy in conjunction with their wound care programs exhibit a shorter recuperation period. For example a patient can expect his/her recovery time to average 4-8 weeks without HBOT and 2-4 weeks with HBOT!
Wound healing is the number one use for hyperbaric oxygen therapy. HBOT has been proven to have dramatic results on the recovery speed, efficiency, and quality of wound healing, even in difficult environments or when combined with diabetic, hypothyroidism, or nicotine users.
