Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, or HBOT, is a healing modality used at Eric A. Smith Chiropractic. HBOT delivers 100% oxygen to a patient’s pulmonary system while they are in a pressurized chamber. Basically, the patient is breathing oxygen at levels far greater than that which is found in a normal room atmosphere. HBOT has been found to stimulate oxygenation, angiogenesis (new blood cell formation), and improve and promote neurogenesis (a new nerve growth) in the brain. These mechanisms support why hyperbaric oxygen therapy offers significant benefits for restoring brain function. HBOT puts the body in a thriving state which correlates with improved healing and overall well-being.
