Have you ever wondered why a muscle tear (strain) heals quicker than a ligament tear (sprain)? The answer… Oxygen! Muscles have an abundant supply of oxygen providing them with the necessary energy needed for increased protein synthesis during tissue repair and regeneration. Ligaments and tendons, on the other hand, do not.
So, the question remains how do we get more oxygen to the tissues? The answer is simple… Pressure!
Hyperbarics – allowing the body to get the oxygen it needs to create ATP for energy and flush out the lactic acid that causes muscle fatigue. The elevated oxygen levels help athletes increase performance and recover more quickly after a workout.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy boosts immune response and enhances performance levels. The risk of injuries is a potential hazard for all sports and can occur in even the most novice athlete.
More and more athletes are taking control of their recovery and coming back stronger than ever using hyperbaric oxygen therapy. The therapy creates an environment where cells are more receptive to repair and recovery.
hy-per-bar-ic ~ of high pressure, ‘hyper’ means increased and ‘baric’ refers to pressure
Mild hyperbaric oxygen therapy safely increases the body’s oxygen uptake by raising the barometric pressure. Under pressure, additional oxygen is dissolved into the blood plasma and Increased oxygen in the plasma leads to higher amounts of oxygen being delivered to the body’s tissues, organs and brain. The pressure, combined with ambient air purified to 89-93% oxygen delivered by an oxygen concentrator, forces the oxygen to dissolve into the body’s fluids and travel to areas of the body otherwise difficult to reach. The dissolved oxygen saturates the plasma, the lymph, the synovial (joint) fluid and the cerebrospinal fluid surrounding the brain and spinal cord.
Mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is a safe, drug- free therapy that can be used regularly without any danger of oxygen toxicity in the body. The use of a hyperbaric chamber provides up to 300% more oxygen saturation, allowing wounds to heal faster, swelling to be reduced much more quickly, restoration or increased blood flow to injured areas accelerating healing, aiding in detoxification and promoting general wellness. It also aids in the treatment of chronic disease while maximising other modalities. Furthermore, bacteria, viruses, pathogens and yeast cannot survive in an oxygen enriched environment and the pressurised environment of the mild hyperbaric chamber facilitates recovery much more quickly from surgery or injury.
Treatment takes place inside a specially designed inflatable chamber that uses filtered ambient (atmospheric) air with an additional oxygen concentrator to deliver oxygen to the body safely. The chamber inflates quickly and there is enough room to sit upright or to lie down comfortably. After inflation, the chamber will pressurise – a feeling similar to ascending or descending in an aircraft. During inflation and at full pressure you just breathe normally. Sessions usually last an hour, however you can use the chamber for much longer without any adverse effects. After each session you can carry on with your day as normal – there are no restrictions. Our state-of-the-art hyperbaric chamber is spacious enough to accommodate an adult and child or two children, and provide healing oxygen therapy in the most comfortable environment possible. The high level of oxygen promotes a deep sense of relaxation. Your heart rate and blood pressure will settle as the pressure increases helping you to relax. Whilst in the chamber, you can listen to your favourite music, meditate, read a book, use your mobile phone or laptop or simply relax and . . .breathe in the benefits
