HYPERBARICS IS A REVOLUTIONARY THERAPEUTIC CELL TREATMENT
At Sun Medical Center in Fort Lauderdale, we are proud to offer hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) to our clients. The simplicity of Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is what makes it a revolution. As humans, our bodies need oxygen in order to heal themselves. When our body is starved of oxygen, for instance, at the site of an injury, we suffer tissue damage caused by inflammation.
When 100 percent oxygen is administered under higher than normal pressure, it has therapeutic effects on every cell in the body.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy saturates the red blood cells and plasma with high levels of oxygen, which is then forced out into the body’s tissues. This gives your body the fuel it needs to manage the inflammatory reaction and perform its basic metabolic processes, leading to improved overall wellness.
CONDITIONS TREATED WITH HYPERBARICS
Autism and Hyperbarics
Research performed in 2005 strongly indicates that hyperbaric oxygen therapy may assist in improving behavioral and physical abnormalities in people with Autism.
Stroke and Hyperbarics
Anyone who has experienced a stroke, or is closely involved with someone who has, knows how devastating and incapacitating such a diagnosis can be. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy can help stroke victims improve their overall cellular function.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Breathing & Glaucoma
A double-blind study proves that hyperbaric oxygen therapy can have positive effects on patients with Glaucoma and can improve visual fields even without decreasing pressure.
Hyperbarics & Age Related Macular Degeneration
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a significant cause of visual loss worldwide. Studies show HBOT can provide a significant improvement on visual acuity, visual fields, and in the activities of daily living.
The Effect of HBOT on Compromised Grafts & Flaps
The use of grafts and flaps serves as an integral tool for reconstructive surgeons. Unfortunately, there are situations in which grafts or flaps can become compromised and require urgent intervention in order to improve the life of the patient. It is in these cases that hyperbaric oxygen therapy can serve as a useful tool for a successful recovery.
