What is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a medical treatment which enhances the body’s natural healing process by inhalation of 100% oxygen in a total body chamber where atmospheric pressure is increased and controlled. It has been employed for centuries to treat a variety of medical conditions but is presently gaining widespread recognition for its value in new applications in the field of neurology where it is being used for problems such as traumatic brain injury, stroke and other neurological disorders.
