Do You Have a Wound That Won’t Heal?

By · May 20, 2011 · Filed in HBOT

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy has been around along time, effectively speeding the bod’s ability to heal itself.

Oxygen is an essential nutrient that is required for healing. Sometimes the body has some underlying issues that keep it from getting enough oxygen. For example, we treat many patients with foot wounds. One of the reasons for a foot wound not healing is underlying diabetes. Diabetes causes problems with the circulation of blood and thus oxygen to the lower extremities. HBOT can artificially elevate the amount of oxygen and get diabetic wounds back on the road to healing. Another example are complications from radiation therapy. In rare instances the radiation used to treat cancer causes collateral damage to healthy tissue. HBOT can help rebuild the blood vessels that might have been damaged.

More on these conditions later.
