Hyperbaric Therapy Q & A

What is hyperbaric oxygen therapy?

Mild hyperbaric oxygen therapy (mHBOT) is a safe, effective, and affordable way to enhance your healing from injuries or chronic disease.

The Integrative Health Matters team uses a low-pressure HBOT chamber to increase oxygen levels into tissues of your body that are starved for oxygen. You lay comfortably in a special chamber to breathe in oxygen at air pressure levels that are up to three times higher than average.


When should I consider hyperbaric oxygen therapy?

If you need to heal from sports injuries, falls, open wounds, or infections, you should consider hyperbaric therapy.

The Integrative Health Matters team may also recommend hyperbaric oxygen therapy if you have a chronic health condition that would benefit from supplemental oxygen. These health conditions can include:

  • Cancer
  • Stroke
  • Diabetes
  • Bowel disorders
  • Chronic fatigue syndrome
  • Traumatic brain injury

You can also benefit from hyperbaric oxygen therapy if you’re undergoing regenerative medicine therapies to treat muscle tears or chronic joint pain or if you’re having surgery.

If you plan to travel to high altitudes, the team can use hyperbaric therapy to possibly reduce t headaches and bloating that occurs with altitude sickness.

Supplemental oxygen therapy may also offer anti-aging benefits. Treatment can increase your body’s production of new collagen and skin cells to give you a more youthful appearance.


What can I expect during hyperbaric oxygen therapy?

During your hyperbaric oxygen therapy session, you can expect to lie comfortably in an oxygen chamber. As you relax in the chamber, the Integrative Health Matters team instructs you to take deep breaths.

At times, your ears may feel blocked like they do in an airplane. You can swallow or chew a piece of gum to open your ears and relieve pressure in your head.

As the oxygen moves through your body, injured tissues absorb it to increase the efficiency of your healing. After your session is complete, you might feel lightheaded or fatigued. You should have a friend or loved one drive you home after your treatment.

The team at Integrative Health Matters team can determine how many hyperbaric therapy sessions you need depending on your specific condition.
