Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Oxygen is vital to every cell in the body and is especially important during healing and recovery. Increasing oxygen to the cells can help stimulate faster healing of wounds and injuries. It can also help minimize inflammation that can cause pain and limit mobility. At Medici Spine & Pain, we use a wide variety of multidisciplinary treatments to help patients through recovery and rehabilitation, including hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
How Do Hyperbaric Oxygen Chambers Promote Healing?
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy provides oxygen to the body at pressures greater than at sea level, increasing the absorption of oxygen into the body. Using a hyperbaric oxygen chamber forces more oxygen into the bloodstream to give the body the capacity to heal faster. This can increase the amount of oxygen absorbed into all fluids and tissues of the body, reaching areas beyond delivery only by red blood cells. By using this advanced treatment, patients can experience:
- Decreased inflammation
- Improved circulation by stimulating new blood vessel growth
- Improved immune system
- Stimulation of new cell growth for healing
- Reducing the chance of infection
- Reduced pain
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy can be used for injury recovery and healing. It is also a valuable tool for reducing chronic pain in conditions like fibromyalgia, migraines, complex regional pain syndrome and myofascial pain syndrome. The increase of oxygen in the bloodstream, tissues, bone and fluids can have many wellness benefits, helping to speed up recovery, prevent infection, reduce inflammation and improve overall health.
At Medici Spine & Pain, we want to give patients every advantage to improve their health and quality of life through innovative treatments. We have invested in advanced medical equipment and technology to offer cutting-edge treatments at our three facilities in the greater Atlanta area, including hyperbaric oxygen chambers.
