Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)


Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, also called HBOT, is a painless medical therapy that enhances your body’s natural healing process by placing you into a pressurized chamber where you breathe 100% pure oxygen. It’s used as a treatment for a wide variety of medical conditions and is usually a part of an overall medical care plan.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Chambers


The FDA currently recognizes Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for 14 medical conditions, all of which are generally covered by insurance. HBOT may also benefit many conditions not yet approved by the FDA.
