Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)

How HBOT Works

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is a revolutionary medical treatment that has the power to transform your health and well-being. By breathing in pure oxygen while inside a pressurized chamber, HBOT increases oxygen delivery to the tissues and stimulates healing in the body, leading to decreased healing times, enhanced brain function, and reduced inflammation.

Imagine feeling more energetic, healthy, and vibrant. With HBOT, you can experience these benefits and more. Dr. Kleene and Certified HBOT technician Abby Chose will work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan that meets your unique needs and goals. We are committed to helping you achieve optimal health and well-being through the power of HBOT.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is a medical treatment in which a person breathes in pure oxygen while inside a pressurized chamber. It is typically used to treat a variety of conditions, including non-healing wounds, radiation injury, carbon monoxide poisoning, and decompression sickness. It is also sometimes used as a treatment for traumatic brain injury and stroke. It can be a great tool for patients looking to optimize their health and wellness. HBOT can be used to treat patients with autoimmunity, Lyme and mold toxicity, and patients with Cerebral Palsy, autism, and more.

Back In Line Family Chiropractic & Wellness uses hyperbaric chambers from OxyHealth. Our FDA-approved hard shell chambers and soft shell chambers are available for different treatment regimens. Hard shell chambers are capable of achieving up to 2.4 ata (atmospheres resolute) in pressure. This is roughly equivalent to diving to 33-45 feet of sea water. Soft shell chambers are more suitable for personal home rental use. It is important to know what types of pressures you will need for the health challenge you are looking to optimize.

During a HBOT session, the air pressure in the chamber is increased to three times or more the normal atmospheric pressure. This increased pressure allows the oxygen to dissolve more readily in the blood, which can help to improve the delivery of oxygen to the body’s tissues. There are several potential benefits of HBOT, including increasing the amount of oxygen in the blood, improving the body’s ability to heal, reducing inflammation, and killing bacteria.

HBOT is considered a safe and effective treatment for a variety of medical conditions. Our entire staff is professionally trained to ensure your hyperbaric session with us is an incredible experience. We walk each patient through a comprehensive intake process which leads to an effective treatment plan. Side effects are rare and mild, including sinus and inner ear pressure.

Back In Line typically treats patients for Off-Label use, meaning conditions that are not covered by insurance. For those conditions, we suggest getting a referral to the local Wound Clinic. While we recognize the expense, our office has teamed up with Scratchpay so patients can get financing for care.

Contraindications for care:

  • Patients taking these medications:
    1. Bleomycin
    2. Disulfiram
    3. Mafenide Acetate
  • Patients who have or are suspected to have:
    1. Hereditary Spherocytosis
    2. Sickle Cell Anemia
    3. COPD

Hyperbaric oxygen is usually well tolerated with few side-effects. However, there are some side-effects that patients may experience. Most of these items below are avoidable and/or reversible with our trained hyperbaric technicians attending to the patient during treatment.

  • Visual refractive changes (typically only short lived)
  • Cataract maturation (HBOT may not cause cataracts, but may cause them to mature)
  • Claustrophobia
  • Hypoglycemia
  • Barotrauma of the ear (with our trained technicians this is avoidable)
  • Round or oval window rupture (with our trained technicians this is avoidable)
  • Sinus squeeze – can occur if patient has a cold/congestion
  • Tooth squeeze – can occur rarely with a poorly done tooth filling/dental work.
  • Oxygen toxicity seizures (with our trained technicians this is typically avoidable/reversible)
  • Pulmonary oxygen toxicity (with our trained technicians this is typically avoidable/reversible)
  • Decompression sickness (with our trained technicians this is typically avoidable)

Rare complications:

  • Pneumothorax or pulmonary barotrauma (if patient has fragile lungs or recent lung injury)

If you have any questions about these at all, please email Dr. Kleene with subject HBOT inquiry.

WHAT TO WEAR

We ask that you wear clothing that is comfortable and free from fragrance

Conditions We Treat

Anti-Aging
Anti-Aging

Hyperbaric oxygen treatment helps produce more collagen to repair skin, grow new blood vessels to feed more oxygen to muscles, joints, bones, and nerves, decrease the expression of inflammatory genes, and stimulate healthy genes and stem cells to reproduce more rapidly.

Auto-Immunity
Auto-Immunity

Hyperbaric therapy can be a powerful tool for numerous chronic health conditions including autoimmune disease, neurodegenerative conditions, autism, traumatic brain injuries, and more, because it helps reduce inflammation, heal infections, and repair damaged tissues.

Chronic Pain
Chronic Pain

HBOT has been effectively used to reduce chronic pain, especially fibromyalgia syndrome, complex regional pain syndrome, myofascial pain syndrome, migraine, and cluster headaches.

Concussions
Concussions

Oxygen assists in the brain’s healing process. For patients with concussions, these doses of oxygen can improve wound-healing mechanisms in their brains.

Digestive Issues
Digestive Issues

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy pushes oxygen into the colon through its tiny blood vessels. This kills the inflammation-causing bad bacteria that thrive in these low-oxygen environments. It resets the immune system and allows the colon to heal.

Fatigue
Fatigue

Hyperbaric oxygen decreases the severity of fatigue symptoms and increases the quality of life for chronic fatigue patients.

Long Covid
Long-COVID

recent studies show a positive effect of HBOT on the common long COVID-related symptoms of fatigue and ‘brain fog’. These results match with the clinical and qualitative observations of patients receiving the therapy, many of whom report their lives have been transformed.

Lyme Infections
Lyme/Mold Infections

Hyperbaric therapy is an established treatment for infections because it helps support your body’s natural defense mechanisms and can be particularly helpful for complex infections such as Lyme disease that are difficult to treat and can occur with co-infections.

Mild Cognitive Decline
Mild Cognitive Decline

Hyperbaric therapy can improve oxygenation, new blood cell formation, and regenerative nerve growth in the brain, which is why it is a popular therapy among patients with dementia, Alzheimer’s, strokes, and traumatic brain injuries.

Neuropathy
Neuropathy

HBOT therapy works by flooding the body with 100 percent oxygen at increased air pressure. When it comes to damaged nerves, the damage often occurs due to decreased blood flow and oxygenation to the location. By using hyperbaric oxygen therapy, or HBOT, oxygen floods into the area and helps stimulate nerve growth and regeneration.

Sleep Issues
Sleep Issues

HBOT has been found to improve sleep quality and reduce symptoms of sleep disorders by increasing the quantity of oxygen in the bloodstream and brain.

Sport Injuries
Sports Injuries

HBOT therapy has been used to improve sports endurance and performance, enhance energy levels, aid recovery and expedite healing after injuries. Studies have shown that Hyperbaric Oxygen can speed up recovery after an injury by up to 50%, thus promoting pain relief.
