A HBOT Chicago Clinic For Everyone
Numerous medical research and studies have shown that Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT), combined with standard medical care, offers patients the best possible treatment options across the board. Nothing else compares. These studies have continuously shown and demonstrated the wide range of HBOT benefits to patients from all walks of life. Whether you’re a patient or an athlete looking for enhanced performance, our HBOT Chicago clinic offers the best of both worlds.
Just to name a few of these benefits, HBOT helps with infection, chronic wounds, TBI (traumatic brain injury) collagen production and carbon monoxide poisoning. In addition, HBOT therapy may improve with other conditions and illnesses we may not be aware of at the present time. HBOT offers a wide array of health benefits. Some of these benefits include:
- Promoting wound healing
- Stem cell release and migration to area of injury
- Improving perfusion (blood flow) to the affected area of the brain
- Decreasing markers of inflammation in the body and brain
- Reducing the effects of carbon monoxide poisoning
- Improving and repairing injury, by increasing oxygen delivery to damaged tissues
- Improving infection control
- Helping in new blood vessel formation from pre-existing vessels (angiogenesis)
- Nitric oxide release with migration to point of injury
- Reducing local swelling (edema)
- Increasing the production of collagen
HBOT Offers Accelerated Healing For Athletes In Chicago
Athletes can also benefit from HBOT use. The hyperbaric units we use in our Chicago HBOT clinic help athletes receive higher levels of oxygen to the body and the brain. This process quickly maximizes oxygen levels on a cellular level. As a result, stagnant or non-functioning brain neurons can be stimulated and ultimately return to a more normal function. HBOT accelerates healing in both brain and body tissues. Many athletes see drastic positive effects when incorporating HBOT treatment into their sports protocol or workout routine and regiment. Some athletes are going as far as ordering in-home HBOT units. These units and chambers can be used in the comfort of your own home at at any time.
Anyone Can Use HBOT
HBOT is safe for everyone. Yes, even children and elderly patients. HBOT units and chambers deliver pure oxygen under increased atmospheric pressure in a hyperbaric chamber, also known as an HBOT Chamber or HBOT Unit. Some units are soft chambers while others are steel chambers or what’s most commonly referred to as hard chambers. While the patient is inside the hyperbaric chamber, it is pressurized with pure oxygen. HBOT has been used effectively and safely on younger patients under 10 years of age and elderly patients older than 90 years of age. The patient breathes normally, while the system pressure is increased around them. The increased pressure and oxygen concentration supersaturate the blood and tissues with oxygen at the cellular level, which drastically enhances the body’s ability to heal. We’ve seen dramatic improvements in both younger and older patients alike. It’s this increased pressure in oxygen that helps patients heal faster and experience the amazing benefits and results achieved with HBOT therapy. Anyone can use HBOT and everyone can benefit from oxygen therapy. Our HBOT Chicago clinic offers HBOT treatment to patients in Cook County and all nearby surrounding counties such as DuPage County, Lake County, Will County, Kane County and McHenry County.

The FDA Have Approved HBOT To Help Treat
- an air or gas embolism
- anemia due to severe blood loss
- some brain and sinus infections ADD LINK
- carbon monoxide poisoning
- burns resulting from heat or fire
- skin grafts
- necrotizing soft tissue infections
- osteomyelitis, a bone marrow infection
- arterial insufficiency, or low blood flow in the arteries
- acute traumatic ischemia, which may involve a crush injury, for example
- gas gangrene
- a radiation injury, for example, as a result of cancer treatment
Evidence has shown that these uses are safe and effective. Insurance companies or Medicare usually cover the cost of FDA-approved HBOT treatment.
Some healthcare providers may use HBOT to treat other conditions, including a type of hearing loss.
Also, wounds and infections that have not responded to other treatment may respond to HBOT. For example, it may help reduce the need for amputation in people with diabetic foot ulcers.
What To Expect With An HBOT Treatment
HBOT is usually an outpatient procedure, and a doctor will recommend a certain number of sessions, depending on a person’s condition.
For some people with carbon monoxide poisoning, one session is enough.
In some studies involving soft tissue necrosis, participants each received an average of eight treatments.
An HBOT session typically involves:
- putting on a cotton medical gown
- sitting or lying in a sealed chamber, either alone or with other people, in which case the chamber will be room-sized
- receiving pressurized oxygen, which may arrive through a mask or a hood
- talking with a therapist or technician during the session, if desired
- possibly listening to music or watching TV to encourage relaxation
In a chamber for one, the person usually lies on a table that slides into a clear plastic tube.
The length of the session will depend on the reason for the treatment. A session may last 30 minutes to 2 hours. For chronic illnesses, a session usually lasts around 2 hours.
What Is HBOT For?
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is a medical treatment which enhances the body’s natural healing process by inhalation of 100% oxygen. This is accomplished using a body chamber or HBOT unit, where atmospheric pressure is increased and controlled. The increased oxygen greatly enhances the ability of white blood cells to kill bacteria, reduces swelling and allows new blood vessels to grow more rapidly into the affected areas. Many practices are now offering HBOT therapy for patients who have tried other options that have not produced favorable results. One of the newest HBOT centers to join the Midwest is HBOT Chicago.
With so many treatment options available, patients really don’t know who is a leading provider in the HBOT industry. One of the most prominent HBOT providers in the East Coast now offer in-home units for patients who prefer to have an at home experience in a more comfortable environment. This has allowed more and more patients to experience the benefits of HBOT without having to leave their home and go to a local clinic. One of the pioneers in at-home HBOT chambers is HBOT USA. Many patients have now turned to using HBOT in the comfort of their own home.
HBOT Improves Quality Of Life
Most illnesses and injuries occur, and often linger, at the cellular or tissue level. In many cases, such as: circulatory problems; non-healing wounds; and strokes, adequate oxygen cannot reach the damaged area and the body’s natural healing ability is unable to function properly. HBOT is a simple, non-invasive and painless treatment. It is used for a wide variety of treatments usually as a part of an overall medical care plan. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy improves the quality of life of the patient in many areas when standard medicine is not working. Many conditions such as stroke, cerebral palsy, head injuries, and chronic fatigue have responded favorably to HBOT treatments and several studies indicate that patients benefit tremendously from these therapies. Having access to HBOT can mean all the difference in the world to someone who truly needs a holistic approach to healing.
Under normal circumstances, oxygen is transported throughout the body only by red blood cells. With HBOT, oxygen is dissolved into all of the body’s fluids, the plasma, the central nervous system fluids, the lymph, and the bone and can be carried to areas where circulation is diminished or blocked. In this way, extra oxygen can reach all of the damaged tissues and the body can support its own healing process. This is what makes HBOT so unique yet so simplistic in its delivery. The body needs oxygen plain and simple. This is what HBOT therapy does and it does it at the highest possible level.
The Body Needs Oxygen
It has long been known that healing many areas of the body cannot take place without appropriate oxygen levels in the tissue. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy provides this extra oxygen naturally and with minimal side effects. We hope this information was useful to you and helps you in your journey to exploring HBOT treatment whether its in a local HBOT clinic or in the comfort of your own home.
