Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy in Springfield

Chiropractic Springfield MO Woman Breathing Easy

Oxygen is essential for the proper functioning of every cell in the body. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) in Springfield is based on Henry’s law of physics, which states that more gas is dissolved in a liquid by increasing the pressure of the gas.

HBOT is a specialized therapy that uses an increase in atmospheric pressure to allow the body to incorporate more oxygen into blood cells, blood plasma, cerebral-spinal fluid, and other body fluids. Hyperbaric chambers are simply enclosures which allow the person inside to experience atmospheric pressures greater than normal environmental pressures.

Blood is made of three main components: white blood cells that fight infection, red blood cells that carry oxygen, and plasma, the fluid that carries both kinds of cells throughout the body. Normally only red blood cells carry oxygen.

Since HBOT forces oxygen into the body fluids, under pressure, oxygen dissolves into all of the body’s fluids, including the plasma, the lymph, the synovial (joint) fluids and the cerebrospinal fluid surrounding the brain and spinal cord. These fluids can carry the extra oxygen to areas where circulation is poor (or blocked), either by trickling past blockages or by seeping into the affected area.

HBOT is a form of therapy intended to make more oxygen available to all parts of the body. Contact our Springfield chiropractic office today to schedule an appointment.
