The air you breathe daily contains 78% nitrogen and only 21% oxygen, yet oxygen is the component critical to the body to function and restore itself. Your red blood cells carry this oxygen to all parts of the body as long as your vessels don’t narrow from damage or plaque buildup. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy provides 100% oxygen under pressure so that all cells become saturated and the oxygen is then pushed to each part of the body despite poor circulation. The Doctors Clinic has been doing hyperbaric oxygen treatments(HBOT) for over 40 years now. Dr. Parker was one of the co-developers of the TP-101 chamber. HBOT is touted as“the cure” looking for a disease because every bodily cell needs oxygen to thrive and heal.
From NFL players to divers to stroke and burn victims, HBOT gets oxygen where it needs to be to promote the body’s rapid cellular repair and regeneration. Other common conditions treated with HBOT include carbon monoxide poisoning, smoke inhalation, wound healing, radiation damage, compromised skin grafts, brain injury or edema, vascular ailments, dementias, spinal injuries and post surgical recovery. We’ve seen so many amazing improvements in patients from almost having to have a foot amputated to being back to work full time greeting customers around the store. We’ve had stroke and motor vehicle head injuries that could hardly look you in the eye when they started to carry on full conversations and tell silly jokes. We’ve had heart attack patients to large skin graft areas to deep wounds, all with their own impressive story to
The HBO treatments themselves typically last between 60-120 minutes and you simply lie and relax or take a nap while breathing pure oxygen. A technician sits with you through your entire treatment. Under pressure the oxygen dissolves more readily into the blood, plasma, lymphatic fluid, cerebrospinal fluid, and interstitial fluid. This can help to reduce inflammation, promote healing, and encourage tissue and vessel regeneration.
Doctors Clinic provides comprehensive exams and testing to pinpoint the origin of your health concerns so they can provide the optimal treatment for healing.
