Some Likely Mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Benefits

Reduces the inflammation and swelling that slows healing. Oxygen is one of the primary mechanisms for ameliorating inflammation.

Increases the proliferation and mobilization of stem cells. Stem cells differentiate into blood, brain and tissue cells.

Assists medications such as antibiotics in penetrating deep into the tissues through increasing metabolic activity. In fact, hyperbaric oxygen alone is bacteriostatic.

Stimulates the growth of new blood vessels by increasing the oxygen gradient.

Stimulates the growth of collagen. Collagen makes up the majority of connective tissue including muscles, tendons and ligaments by encouraging new blood vessel growth.

Promotes the growth of new brain cells by inducing cerebral angiogenesis.

Regrowth of peripheral nerves reducing or eliminating the symptoms of neuropathy. Nerve injury impairs the body’s ability to remove damaged and dysfunctional cells, called autophagy. It is believed that hyperbaric oxygen enhances autophagy.

May increase telomere length. Telomeres protect the ends of all chromosomes. They become shorter as we age. Hyperbaric oxygen decreases the cells responsible for aging and increases the cells responsible for maintaining and adding to telomere length

Reduces the appearance of scars post surgery by bringing oxygen enriched plasma to oxygen starved tissue.
