Hyperbaric Chamber for Oxygen Therapy Now Available in Plano
VIP Total Health and Hydration is proud to announce the availability of hyperbaric chamber treatments as part of your oxygen therapy services at our Plano location. Hyperbaric chamber treatments address a wide range of medical injuries and conditions and help speed up recovery.
One of the primary benefits of this treatment option is that it speeds up the healing process. Popularly known as hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT), our hyperbaric chamber therapy treatment option is for varying conditions. You may be familiar with using this treatment to treat decompression sickness caused by scuba diving. The advances in treatment technology have expanded to provide benefits for a more extensive range of conditions.
How does our hyperbaric chamber work?
When you visit VIP Total Health and Hydration in Plano, your treatment specialist will take the time to explore all of the options and benefits available from this treatment.
To begin your treatment in the hyperbaric chamber, one of our qualified team members will help you climb inside the tube-like apparatus. Some worry about being claustrophobic, but you can see everything happening outside because of the clear acrylic that makes up the tube. Once you are comfortably inside, your assigned specialist will ask you to breathe in pure oxygen as they increase the pressure. If laying in a chamber doesn’t sound appealing, oxygen therapy treatments can use a facemask or lightweight hood. Alternate oxygen therapy methods don’t require you to enter the tube.
Treatment sessions can last anywhere from one to two hours. Our clients typically receive oxygen therapy five days a week for four to six weeks. Your symptoms and injury diagnosis will allow our team to determine the precise number of treatment sessions you should undergo to optimize benefits.
What does oxygen therapy do?
Regardless of the treatment method, our hyperbaric chamber operates under the same healthy premise to increase metabolism and oxygen absorption by increasing the surrounding atmospheric pressure. The atmospheric pressure inside is two to three times greater than outside. This safe pressurized condition ensures that you inhale pure oxygen.
After entering your lungs, oxygen is absorbed into your blood and transported to all your tissues and organs through the heart and blood vessels. You will find the entire experience comfortable and relaxing.
Who can benefit from hyperbaric chamber treatments?
Your body needs oxygen to heal. When you lack adequate amounts of oxygen in your bloodstream, it can lead to multiple conditions and slows the healing. For instance, diabetes slows the circulation process, which makes it difficult for injuries to heal. Our hyperbaric oxygen chamber therapy services can treat injuries that require optimal blood circulation, including surgical wounds, burn relief, COPD treatment, and crush injuries.
If you or a loved one believes you could benefit from our cutting-edge hyperbaric chamber experience, the experienced team at VIP Total Health and Hydration are here to help you every step of the way. We want to help accelerate your healing so you can return to living the active life you want.
