Trish – CRPS and Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Please take a moment to watch Trish describe her journey with CRPS and Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy.

Hyperbaric Healing Institute provides state-of-the-art hyperbaric oxygen therapy.  Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is a medical procedure that involves the patient being placed in a completely enclosed chamber in which the atmosphere is controlled and the patient is able to breathe pure 100 percent oxygen. This level exceeds atmospheric pressure. The hyperbaric process places oxygen in places within the body at a cellular level, and also where the circulation might be blocked. HBOT therapy is not painful and it is not an invasive procedure. HBOT therapy can be used in conjunction with other medical treatments as part of a patient’s treatment plan. Learn More *

Helping Charlotte and many patients in similar circumstances, is why Hyperbaric Healing Institute exists.  As a provider of HBOT, we want well informed patients/families, who have the desire to receive HBOT, to be able to receive this therapy.  Every patient’s needs/issues are unique, but improvements in patients’ conditions are possible and it is the goal of both families and staff.

If there is one factor that we could stress to any individual or family, regarding Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT), is that early intervention is a very important component in recovery.  Intervening early after trauma or diagnosis does improve the opportunity for greater benefit.  To read more about Hyperbaric Healing Institute, HBOT and what is offered at our office, please click on the links below.

Intensive Physical Therapy

Intensive Physical Therapy – PT for 3 hours a day, 5 days a week, for a several weeks.

The concept of intensive therapy, is to train or retrain the brain and body to work together by teaching high repetitions of movement patterns and exercises in a concentrated period of time.

Intensive therapy for children has been in practice for decades in European countries.  In the past, American families who were interested in this effective and innovative approach, would travel outside the country to allow the opportunity for their child to participate in intensive therapy programs.  Since the late 1990’s, the practice of Intensive Physical Therapy (IPT) has been spreading across the United States.  Clinics may vary in their individual approach, but they share the basic concept of short duration, intense daily therapy.

Conventional physical therapy for most children who require physical therapy for chronic developmental conditions, such as brain injuries, will commonly allow for hour-long therapy sessions, one or two times per week, on an ongoing basis for years.  A child’s progress is measured on an individual basis, based on objective and subjective report of the therapist and family.  Although large-scale research has not been conducted to evaluate the effectiveness of this ongoing model of therapy, it has long been accepted by the therapy community and reimbursed by insurance companies.  Similarly, progress using the intensive model of physical therapy is measured on an individual basis, using common therapy tests and measures, as well as the goals of the family, to determine if acceptable progress is being made.  The benefits of Intensive Physical Therapy that therapists and families observe – are remarkable:  Children can make measurable gains in a fraction of the time by condensing months’ worth of therapy into a few weeks.

For children with neuromuscular disorders, such as cerebral palsy, Intensive Physical Therapy provides the opportunity to practice correct movement patterns repetitively in a controlled environment.  This repetition and consistency is necessary for neurological reeducation, which means the brain is being taught to automatically use the correct pattern of movement.

The intensive method of therapy allows us to target all areas of need in a condensed period of time. This provides faster development of skills and strength. During an Intensive Physical Therapy session, we utilize several unique therapy tools that are not typically offered throughout the majority of the United States. The ‘TheraSuit’ is one of the innovative tools we offer to our patients during the intensive session. The ‘TheraSuit’ is an external orthotic that is worn during physical therapy to work on properly aligning the body, to assist with normalizing the patients’ gait pattern while allowing for neuromuscular re-education to occur. We also use the ‘Universal Exercise System’, that allows functional weight training and gait training in a weight-supported environment.

Children with other developmental delays, such as Down’s Syndrome, can also benefit from the intensive model of therapy.  All children learn by a process of trial and error.  A child attempts a new skill many times, learning many ways that do not work, before achieving success.  A child with developmental delays may require more trials before mastering a new skill.  Intensive therapy allows for many repetitions of functional skills, to facilitate mastery in a shorter amount of time.

If children have muscle weakness that is contributing to their delayed motor development, strengthening may be a necessary component of the therapy plan.  Physical therapists know that muscle does not become stronger if it is challenged on an inconsistent basis.  Just as a person will not get stronger by going to the gym for one hour per week, a child’s muscles will not get stronger with therapy once per week.  Intensive therapy allows the therapist to use strengthening tools and exercises consistently, to improve the child’s flexibility and strength.  With this new strength, new functional skills are possible.  Once the child is utilizing his new strength in a functional way, for instance – in the ability to jump, the functional strength will be maintained.

How Can Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Help Your Lyme Disease?

In addition to antibiotics, physicians will often include hyperbaric oxygen therapy as a treatment to help patients fight off Lyme disease. This is because the bacterium that causes Lyme disease is known as “anaerobic,” which simply means that it cannot exist in oxygen. One of the primary benefits of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is that the process safely increases oxygen levels within your body, which can ultimately cause a reduction of harmful bacteria.

Patients undergoing Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for help with their Lyme disease may experience something called the Herxheimer response, which includes symptoms such as fever, chills, headache, flushing, and more. This is caused by endotoxins that are released as the harmful bacteria dies. Fortunately, this reaction typically lasts only a few hours to days, and additional pharmaceuticals can be prescribed to help ease any symptoms.
