Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) has been around for over 80 years and is a safe and effective treatment to help your body heal. Our chamber will inflate and pressurise to a few meters below sea level with 95% oxygen. This combination of increased pressure and high oxygen concentration allows your lungs to collect more oxygen and deliver it to all parts of the body, especially where blood flow is hindered. When your blood carries this extra oxygen, this helps fight bacteria and stimulate the release of substances called growth factors and stem cells, which promote healing. It also has been shown to reduce inflammation, regenerate damaged tissues like muscles and improves your immunity.

Our chamber is different! There is space to comfortably sit upright, recline in the chair, or lie down during your 60-minute session. Before getting into the chamber, an Oak Park Family Chiropractic team member will explain the procedure, help with techniques to clear your ears during pressurisation and make sure you’re comfortable during your session.

While the chamber is increasing in pressure, it feels a bit like an aeroplane flight, and you will need to clear your ears to be comfortable. Once you’ve stabilised your ear pressure the rest of the session will feel completely normal, you can use your phone, work on your laptop, listen to music, read a book, or have a nap.

Most people find the experience very calming!


Benefits of Hyperbaric Oxygen therapy

Your body’s tissues need oxygen to function, and when tissue is injured, it requires more oxygen to survive. HBOT may help increase the amount of oxygen your blood can carry. This oxygenation helps tissue regeneration after injury as it promotes the healing of bones, muscles, and ligaments. Improved oxygenation also helps fight infection and inflammation and assist with wound healing. Many people use HBOT to help with improvements in energy levels, mental focus, and quality of sleep.

Research has shown HBOT can also improve brain function following a stroke or traumatic brain injury (TBI). HBOT has been shown to wake up “sleeping” neurons within the brain by permanently changing the structure of blood vessels which improves oxygenation and reduces intercranial pressure.

Benefits of HBOT may be experienced immediately but regular sessions may help optimise and maintain results. Depending on what you’re having HBOT for will depend how frequent your sessions and how many sessions you will need to optimise the benefits. A twice weekly session for 5 weeks is a good place to start.

The research for HBOT is still in its infancy and will only continue to grow. Here are some links to / of what people are saying about HBOT:
