Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) can provide healing benefits for diabetic wounds. Here is what you should know:

What is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is an FDA-approved medical treatment that involves breathing 100% pure oxygen while laying comfortably in a state-of-the-art pressurized glass chamber.

Our physician-supervised HBOT sessions are used to treat various medical conditions, including, non-healing wounds (such as diabetic foot ulcers), certain infections, and other conditions where increased oxygen delivery to tissues can promote healing.

How can HBOT help with wounds associated with diabetes?

1. Improved wound healing: Diabetes can impair the body’s ability to heal wounds due to reduced blood flow and compromised immune function. HBOT delivers high concentrations of oxygen to tissues, promoting wound healing by stimulating the formation of new blood vessels (angiogenesis), increasing the growth of fibroblasts (cells involved in tissue repair), and enhancing the activity of white blood cells to fight infection.

2. Reduced risk of infections: Diabetes weakens the immune system, making individuals more susceptible to infections. HBOT helps combat infections by delivering oxygen to areas with compromised blood flow, which enhances the ability of white blood cells to eliminate bacteria and prevents the growth of anaerobic bacteria that thrive in low-oxygen environments.

3. Management of diabetic foot ulcers: Diabetic foot ulcers area common complication of diabetes and can lead to severe infections and even amputations if left untreated. HBOT can significantly improve the healing rates of diabetic foot ulcers by promoting tissue regeneration, reducing inflammation, and combating infections.

4. Neuropathy management: Diabetic neuropathy is nerve damage caused by high blood sugar levels, leading to symptoms such as numbness, tingling, and pain in the extremities. HBOT has shown promise in alleviating neuropathic symptoms by improving nerve function, reducing inflammation, and promoting tissue repair.

Overall, HBOT can play a valuable role in the management of diabetic wounds and improving overall tissue health and function.
