What is hyperbaric oxygen therapy?
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is an adjunctive option that is a painless medical treatment. Hyperbaric oxygen chamber enhances the body's natural healing process by inhalation of 100 percent oxygen in a total body chamber, allowing your lungs to breathe in more oxygen than normal. This pure oxygen promotes the healing of damaged areas faster and more efficiently.
