Hyperbaric Healing Institute, Inc. is the largest freestanding outpatient Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy clinic in the Midwest. We treat all non-emergent FDA approved indications requiring Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy. This includes hyperbaric oxygen for problem wound care, complications from radiation therapy, and osteomyelitis.
As the largest freestanding outpatient Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy clinic in the Midwest, our highly trained and experienced staff is dedicated to providing safe and effective hyperbaric treatments. Our large 10-person, multi-place chamber is walk-in and wheelchair accessible. Since its inception, Hyperbaric Healing Institute has focused on addressing indications in the areas of neurological, cancer, orthopedic, sports medicine, surgery recovery and trauma. As a freestanding clinic we may treat a variety of other indications which HBOT has been shown to benefit, including:Cerebral Palsy, Multiple Sclerosis, Stroke, Traumatic Brain Injury, RSD, Autism, Sports Injury, and Surgery Recovery.*
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is a method of administering pure oxygen at greater than atmospheric pressure to a patient in order to improve or correct conditions. By providing pure oxygen in a pressurized chamber we are able to deliver 10-15 times more oxygen then if delivered at sea level or at normal atmospheric levels. Some of the effects this has are to promote the growth of new blood vessels, decrease swelling and inflammation, deactivate toxins, increase the body’s ability to fight infections, and improve the rate of healing. HBOT should be used to complement conventional therapies and treatments.
How does HBOT help Cerebral Palsy, Brain Injury or Stroke?
When cells in the brain die, either from trauma or lack of oxygen, blood plasma leaks out into surrounding brain tissue causing swelling and reducing blood flow. These otherwise normal cells go dormant because they can’t function without the appropriate amount of oxygen. HBOT dramatically increases the oxygen carried in the blood plasma, making oxygen available to heal damaged capillary walls preventing plasma leakage and reducing swelling. As the swelling decreases, normal blood flow can be restored to the dormant tissue and these brain cells then have the potential to go back “on-line.”
