Hyperbaric oxygen Therapy (HBOT) can help a wide variety of conditions involving compromised blood flow and oxygen deprivation. This valuable treatment uses 100% oxygen to speed and enhance the body’s natural ability to heal. HBOT is accepted by the American Medical Association and Food and Drug Administration for specific indications. Currently, the FDA has accepted 14 conditions that are responsive to HBOT.
