Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is a simple procedure utilizing the physics of increased pressure and the movement of gases to assist in developing an ideal environment for healing, detoxification, rest and relaxation. Small increases in pressure have shown tremendous effects on human physiology when paired with breathing increased oxygen levels.
Athletes gain an advantage utilizing HBOT
Many athletes use HBOT to gain an athletic advantage both before and after competition. More oxygen to the tissues equals better performance. It is also used for enhanced recovery time from training, thus helping to prevent chronic over training injuries.
Research has proven that hyperbaric therapy increases collagen synthesis in tendons, reduces stress and accelerates recovery from acute injuries. This therapy is in compliance with the International Olympic Committee and the National Collegiate Athletic Association.

Oxygen is the body’s number one nutritional requirement. The average person consumes six pounds of oxygen per day and there are more than 8,000 different processes in the body that require oxygen.
With hyperbaric therapy, the increased oxygen saturates the red blood cells and plasma, allowing the oxygen to be transported to the tissues facilitating a higher performance level and healing. By utilizing oxygen therapy, our patients are able to heal much quicker from pain and injury.
