What is HBOT?
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is breathing 100% oxygen at a pressure that is greater than what you normally experience. This circumstance allows for oxygen to dissolve and saturate the blood plasma and makes oxygen can be reached all organs of the body. This increased flow of oxygen stimulates and restores function to damaged cells and organs.
Breathing 100 percent oxygen under pressure causes the oxygen to diffuse into the blood plasma. This oxygen-rich plasma able to travel past the restriction, diffusing up to three times further into the tissue. The pressurized environment helps to reduce swelling and discomfort, while providing the body with at least 10 times its normal supply of oxygen to help repair tissue damaged by to original occlusion or subsequent hypoxic condition.
Blood Vessel Regeneration
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy forces more oxygen into the tissue, encouraging the formation of new blood vessels. As these new blood vessels develop, the red blood cells start to flow, delivering even more oxygen to the affected area. This creates the optimal environment for the body's natural healing processes to repair damaged tissue.
