What is hyperbaric oxygen therapy?

One of the most versatile therapies ever developed, hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) utilizes pressurized chambers with supplemental oxygen to create an environment where more oxygen can be compressed into body fluids, cells, and tissues.

More oxygen delivered to the body and brain under pressure can have profound impacts on one’s health as demonstrated in the research over the past several decades in many areas of the health sciences.

And, HBOT has even been shown to positively impact genetic expression; which holds great promise for many conditions once thought untreatable!

The health benefits of HBOT

  • Improved mitochondrial function (increased energy)
  • Decreased inflammation
  • Enhanced immune response
  • Formation of new blood vessels (angiogenesis/neovascularization)
  • Stimulation of stem cells
  • Accelerated injury healing/recovery
  • Positive impacts on genetic expression, and more

Conditions that have been shown to benefit from HBOT

  • Brain injury (traumatic and acquired)
  • Cognitive impairment and dementia
  • Neurodegenerative disorders (Parkinson’s, MS, etc.)
  • Addiction
  • Seizures
  • Inflammatory and infectious disorders
  • Autoimmune conditions
  • Migraines, and more

How it’s done

There’s really not much to it!

We utilize the highest quality, American made soft chambers from Oxyhealth to provide a reliable and comfortable experience for all. Our chambers are rated to 1.3 ATA; the ideal pressure, and one that will not cause potential side effects caused by higher pressure chambers, for the conditions outlined above.

HBOT “dives” are approximately 1 hour in length. Users wear a nasal canula or mask to deliver the oxygen while lying comfortably on the bed inside. There is a large window to provide sight outside the chamber, as well as ambient light inside, decreasing any challenges one may have with being inside a closed chamber.

Portable devices such as smartphones and tablets, as well as books and certain neurological rehabilitation tools can be used while in the chamber. Although, most simply choose to nap!

Most programs range from 10-40 dives, depending on the nature and severity of the condition.

To learn more about HBOT and its far-reaching benefits for human health, healing, and performance; call us today at 828.708.5274 to set up a free consultation with one of the doctors.

Dr. Michael S. Trayford is a Board Certified Chiropractic Neurologist and Neurofeedback Specialist with over 20 years of experience in the practice of advanced functional neurology. He is one of the most highly sought-after brain rehabilitation specialists because of the life-changing outcomes his patients consistently experience. After over a decade in private practice and working alongside other pioneers in the field, Dr. Trayford developed his multimodal intensive brain training and rehabilitation program built around the science of Neuroplasticity – the ability of the brain to learn and grow dependent upon the stimulation it receives from its environment. He later founded APEX Brain Centers to combine his ground-breaking rehabilitation approach with a unique patient and caretaker-centered care model. Under Dr. Trayford’s leadership, APEX Brain Centers has successfully treated thousands of patients and earned the reputation of a world-renowned brain training and rehabilitation practice. Since its inception, Dr. Trayford has been a leader of the Brain Training revolution treating patients worldwide. In addition, he is a published journal contributor and international lecturer. His experience with various patients of all ages and neurological conditions has given him a unique perspective on brain health and human performance. He is also well-versed in collaborating with other health care professionals, making him an invaluable asset to any care team. Dr. Trayford was awarded the Functional Neurologist of the Year distinction by the International Association of Functional Neurology and Rehabilitation, where he is a proud member and conference lecturer. Currently, he serves on the Advisory Council for the Dementia Society of America and the Board of Directors for the International Society for Neuroregulation and Research. He is also a servant leader who has dedicated his adult life to serving multiple communities through Rotary International and other notable causes. When he’s not treating patients, Dr. Trayford usually reads or researches anything related to the brain, human performance, and leadership. He also loves spending time outdoors with his wife Denise, their two daughters, and dogs in the beautiful mountains of western North Carolina. https://www.linkedin.com/in/drmichaeltrayford/
