Hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber
Oxygen is the element most vital to sustaining human life. More essential than food or water, oxygen feeds the body and provides protection against a variety of harmful agents. This essential element gives an athlete stamina, helps the injured heal and protects from environmental toxins. Oxygen provides the fuel needed by the brain to function properly and it helps the body fight off infection by boosting the immune system.
Mild hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is a method of increasing oxygen intake by exposing the body to oxygen at a higher than normal atmospheric pressure, causing a super saturation of oxygen in the plasma and tissue fluids.
Benefits of the Hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber include:
- Assists in healing, post-operative and sporting injury recovery.
- Helps in treating chronic disease and maximise the benefits of other treatment modalities.
- Enhances wound healing.
- Decreases post-operative inflammation, infection and encourages normal healing process.
- Used as an adjunctive therapy in sports medicine to enhance recovery for athletes.
