Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for Traumatic Brain Injury, Concussion, Post-Concussion Syndrome

April 3, 2021

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is described as breathing increased amounts of oxygen within a pressurized environment, at a level higher than the average atmospheric pressure exerted at sea level (1 Atmosphere Absolute, ATA). When this occurs, a variety of physiological changes occur within our body that support healing. HBOT promotes improvement of...

The story of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

April 3, 2021

The story of HBOT   We are made up of cells, these cells make up a tissue, which makes up an organ, which drives our body. Imagine legos that are little components of a larger structure that you might have played with as a child. The legos are our cells and the building, ship, etc that you built was the organ. These legos, or cells need energy to work....

Mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, Portland Maine

March 10, 2021

What is happening during Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, or HBOT? Under pressure, increased amounts of oxygen are transferred into the plasma of your blood, which usually contains about 3% oxygen. This increases to about 97% oxygen during hyperbaric therapy, allowing oxygen to diffuse into tissue 400% deeper than would normally be allowed. This allows tissue to...

Brain remapping to restore your back, neck and joint pain

February 19, 2021

Many of us do not consider that our brain is really made up of a bunch of maps that relate to each part of our body. This brain receives information from our body via receptor activation that delivers important feedback as to where we are in space. The brain needs an accurate map so that it can coordinate the joints, muscles and tendons of our body in an...

Early Intervention of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is important in reducing long-term effects of neuronal stress or damage sustained during mild traumatic brain injury, otherwise known as concussion.

November 28, 2020

After a concussion we are providing decreased oxygen to our brain because we cannot deliver as much blood flow to it as usual. Concussive Injury leads to a period of decreased cerebral blood flow, rendering the brain ill-equipped to meet the energy demands required for restoring homeostasis. This so-called "energy crisis" creates a potential window of...

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy - miracle treatment?

August 6, 2020

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is turning heads as new research reveals incredible possibilities for healing. Not only for injured muscles, joints and wounds, but exceptional progress has been made in the research of neurocognitive conditions and the use of hyperbaric oxygen. We are seeing tremendous results in patients who have experienced traumatic brain...
