Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

What is hyperbaric oxygen therapy?

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy delivers high doses of pure oxygen to the body in a pressurized chamber. This type of therapy supplies you with 10 times the amount of oxygen you get through regular breathing. It can even deliver oxygen to areas of poor blood flow within your body.

Dr. Stoller uses hyperbaric oxygen therapy to improve your overall health and treat a variety of complex conditions. His results with this therapy are remarkable and often can’t be achieved with other types of treatment.

What conditions can be treated with hyperbaric oxygen therapy?

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy can be beneficial for a number of conditions. While the list is extensive, Dr. Stoller evaluates your health and medical history to determine if you’ll benefit of oxygen therapy for the treatment of issues like:

  • Arthritis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Chronic pain
  • Lyme disease
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Diabetic wounds
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Chronic fatigue syndrome
  • Inflammatory bowel diseases

If you have another chronic disease or underlying medical condition, schedule a consultation with Dr. Stoller to discuss the benefits of hyperbaric oxygen therapy.

What happens during hyperbaric oxygen therapy?

Your oxygen therapy is delivered in a pressured hyperbaric chamber and you can expect to lie comfortably on a table that slides into a tube-like chamber.

Dr. Stoller increases the air pressure in the chamber to three times the normal pressure, so you may feel some fullness in your ears, which you can resolve with a hard swallow or a yawn.

Typically, oxygen therapy sessions last two hours to ensure the full circulation of oxygen throughout your body. Dr. Stoller and his staff carefully monitor your vitals and your overall health throughout your treatment.

What are the benefits of hyperbaric oxygen therapy?

In addition to providing you with high levels of pure oxygen to improve the overall functions of your body, hyperbaric oxygen therapy can:

  • Promote healing
  • Reduce infection risks
  • Increase stem cell production

Another benefit of treatment with hyperbaric oxygen therapy is that the procedure is safe and typically poses no risks. Dr. Stoller thoroughly evaluates your medical history and existing health to ensure oxygen therapy is right for you.

Following your treatment, you can return to your usual activities without any limitations, although you may be tired after your session.
