A simple way to understand how mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy heals injured tissue

May 18, 2017

Under Hyperbaric Therapy (HBO2), Oxygen, which is a much smaller molecule than a Red Blood Cell (RBC), is pulled from the larger RBC, which is carrying the oxygen molecules to tissues via hemoglobin. RBC's are the vehicle transport for all oxygen within our body. After extraction, it is now concentrated within the surrounding plasma. This allows the smaller...

Mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for Brain Wellness

May 7, 2016

A patient recently said to me, "that Oxygen chamber is better than a cup of coffee." Brain wellness, why don't we discuss this topic more? We're so obsessed with nutrition and exercise that we forget about a fundamental requirement for the brain, Oxygen. Unfortunately, many of us do not get enough Oxygen required by the brain to work at our full potential....

Mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for Neurological conditions and Brain Injury

April 5, 2016

It is widely understood that oxygen is important in our body's innate healing mechanisms. What isn't understood is that even though we are breathing, oxygen is not perfusing areas of the body sufficient for optimal function and healing. Our brain, specifically the autonomic nervous system, regulates where blood flow will be increased or decreased in...

Neuroplasticity Exercises to Restore Brain Health

April 5, 2016

What is Neuroplasticity? It refers to the ability of the brain to adapt, reorganizing to create new neural pathways so that we can CHANGE our brain function as needed. Why is it needed? Many of us go through life changing head injuries, major life events that alter us in some way, illness, accidents, postural changes and every day stress that can effect the...

Whiplash: It's More than just a Neck Injury

February 5, 2016

Whiplash is often considered an injury ot the Neck, but emerging evidence and certainly our clinical experience illustrates the association of mild traumatic brian injury, or concussions associated with the force of a whiplash event. We have wondered in the past why some patients respond slower, or have emotional symptoms, fogginess, dizziness,...

Treatment of Concussion and other Brain Injuries with Mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

December 13, 2015

What is rather interesting and ultimately very important about the human brain is that it is the control center of blood flow, where it is distributed and at what particular volume. This is accomplished through control of our blood vessels, either constricting or dilating as needed. However, in many patients, the injured brain is affected in such a way that...
