Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is used to treat Traumatic Brain Injuries.

No insurance is accepted.

Hyperbaric Therapy, also known as mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy,  (HBOT or HBO or mHBOT or HBT), is the medical use of oxygen in a  pressurized environment, at a level higher than 1 atmosphere absolute  (ATA). Increased pressure allows for oxygen to dissolve and saturate the  blood plasma (independent of hemoglobin/red blood cells), blood cells,  cerebral-spinal fluid, and other body fluids which yields a broad  variety of positive physiological, biochemical and cellular effects.  This noninvasive therapy is the most trusted way to increase oxygen  levels to all organs of the body.
