Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Q & A

What is hyperbaric oxygen therapy?

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a holistic, powerful treatment that increases the amount of oxygen in your body to improve symptoms of a disease, injury, or chronic pain naturally. Low amounts of oxygen in your blood can increase brain fog, memory loss, depression, neuropathy, tremors, anxiety, and more. It’s associated with inflammation, aging, chronic stress, and injuries.

How does hyperbaric oxygen therapy work?

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy works by increasing oxygen levels within your body by exposing you to hyperbaric oxygen that infuses the gas directly into blood plasma. Extra oxygen that builds up in your body helps heal it and regenerate new tissues naturally without any pain or downtime.

What is hyperbaric oxygen therapy used for?

Dr. Schmutz and his team use hyperbaric oxygen therapy at Integrative Medica to treat the following conditions:

  • Cancer treatment side effects 
  • Fatigue
  • Headaches
  • Memory or behavioral problems
  • Chronic pain
  • Sports injuries or wounds
  • Diabetes
  • Inflammation
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Neurological problems
  • Cerebral palsy or autism
  • Carbon monoxide poisoning

Hyperbaric oxygen treatment can improve symptoms associated with almost any disease or injury naturally.

Is hyperbaric oxygen therapy right for me?

The Integrative Medica team lets you know if hyperbaric oxygen therapy is the right treatment for you after reviewing your medical history and discussing your symptoms. Dr. Schmutz completes a comprehensive physical exam and might recommend blood tests or imaging procedures to diagnose your condition.

What should I expect during treatment?

When you arrive at Integrative Medica for hyperbaric oxygen therapy, you’re greeted by warm, welcoming staff. They check your vital signs, and ask you to lie down and relax in a special tube that delivers elevated levels of oxygen to your body. Dr. Schmutz lets you know how many minutes your treatment may last based on your condition and its severity.

What happens after the procedure?

After hyperbaric oxygen therapy, you might feel slightly tired but can resume normal everyday activities right away as there’s no downtime. The Integrative Medica team might recommend multiple treatments, or combine oxygen therapy with other holistic solutions, to fully restore your health without surgery or harsh medications.

Don’t let an injury, chronic pain, or other disease symptoms diminish your mobility, energy, and overall quality of life. Schedule an appointment with Integrative Medica by phone or online to find out if hyperbaric oxygen therapy is right for you.
