Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy works by increasing oxygen content in the brain to supraphysiologic levels, enhancing mitochondrial function and modulating over 8,000 genes on our DNA; upregulating those responsible for growth and repair and downregulating those responsible for inflammation and apoptosis. Research into the use of HBOT for neurologic conditions has grown exponentially in the last several years. Studies from Israel have been published on the positive effects of HBOT on stroke and TBI recovery. There is also good data to support the use of HBOT for brain radionecrosis, anoxic brain injury, autism, mild cognitive impairment, vascular dementia, and migraine headaches. There is also new and exciting data pointing to a roll of HBOT in the treatment of Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, Multiple Sclerosis, and even spinal cord injuries.

How your patients will benefit from HBOT
- IL1, IL6, and TNF alpha downregulation
- Decreases inflammation
- Release of neuro stem cells to areas of injury
- Promotes angiogenesis
- Enhancing mitochondrial function
- Accelerating wound healing at all stages
- Acute reversing tissue ischemia
- Peri-contusional and ischemic penumbra tissue regeneration
Did You Know?
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Reduces Inflammation. HBOT helps ameliorate both acute and chronic inflammatory conditions by reducing proinflammatory cytokine release. With more oxygen present in the blood system, blood vessels can restrict their flow (vasoconstriction) to damaged tissue and reduce the fluid build up (swelling or edema) without compromising the higher oxygen levels needed for repair.
Our experienced clinical team is available to help you identify appropriate candidates for Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy and to answer any additional questions about HBOT or our facilities. You deserve the best – our mission is to achieve patient success through personalized, innovative, and compassionate care that enhances your healing potential. We do so at the lowest possible out-of-pocket cost for your patients, with only one copay and/or less coinsurance than at a hospital-based HBOT program.
