Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment
At Hassel Family Chiropractic in West Des Moines, IA, we offer Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT). HBOT is a secure and non-invasive treatment method that harnesses increased atmospheric pressure to optimize oxygen delivery to cells and tissues.
Typically, oxygen from our breath is transported to our body’s tissues by red blood cells. However, during hyperbaric oxygen therapy, the heightened pressure induces oxygen to dissolve into the blood plasma. This transformative process significantly amplifies the volume of oxygen carried to our tissues, thereby intensifying oxygen absorption into our cells. This vital role of oxygen is fundamental to driving the metabolic processes within each of our cells.
8 Benefits Of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) offers a range of potential benefits, including:
Enhanced Healing: HBOT can accelerate the body’s natural healing processes, making it valuable for wound healing, tissue repair, and post-surgery recovery.
Improved Oxygen Supply: It increases oxygen supply to cells and tissues, which is beneficial for individuals with conditions that result in poor oxygen circulation.
Reduced Inflammation: HBOT can help reduce inflammation and swelling, which is useful for conditions involving inflammation, such as arthritis and sports injuries.
Brain Function: It may enhance brain function and cognitive performance by delivering more oxygen to the brain, potentially aiding in conditions like stroke recovery and traumatic brain injuries.
Infection Control: HBOT can assist in fighting certain infections, especially those caused by anaerobic bacteria that thrive in low-oxygen environments.
Pain Management: It may alleviate chronic pain conditions, including complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), fibromyalgia, and migraines.
Improved Immune Response: HBOT may boost the immune system by increasing white blood cell production, aiding in the body’s ability to fight infections.
Tissue Preservation: In cases of ischemia or reduced blood flow, such as in some forms of vascular disease, HBOT can help preserve at-risk tissues by providing them with sufficient oxygen.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy: Size Matters
We take pride in offering the largest mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) chambers in the area, ensuring that your sessions are free from any claustrophobic feelings.
Vertical, Extra Large Chamber: Our vertical chamber is designed to accommodate wheelchair users, allowing them to roll directly into the soft hyperbaric chamber. Standing at 6.5 feet tall, this chamber offers users the option to stand comfortably. With a depth of 71 inches, customers can choose to relax on a reclining chair or lay down for their sessions. The wide entry door ensures easy access to the unit.
OXYFLOW Sitting/Reclining Chamber: Our OXYFLOW chamber offers a unique angled design, allowing users to transition from a seated position to a reclined state for relaxation. Users enter the chamber from the front, which zips down toward the feet and splits open in the middle for easy access. With an impressive 89-inch length, individuals of all sizes can comfortably stretch their legs. This chamber delivers compressed oxygen at 1.4 ATA (42 KPA). Included with our OXYFLOW sitting chamber is a proprietary comfort chair that offers remarkable versatility. It allows for precise adjustments, enabling users to go from lying flat to an upright position in fine incremental steps. Additionally, the chair provides the same incremental adjustment options at the head and lower portion for optimal comfort during your sessions.
Enhanced Pressure: Each treatment in our chambers provides 1.3 atmosphere absolute (ATA), which is 30% more than the standard atmospheric pressure. This level of pressure is equivalent to being approximately 12-15 feet underwater. Our Hyperbaric chamber system includes an upgraded oxygen generator, delivering oxygen with 93% purity for the most effective treatments. To enhance your comfort, our system also features air conditioning and a dehumidifier.
