Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for Auto Accident Injuries

Written By Skaggs Chiropractic on December 4, 2017

Auto Accident Injury Treatment using Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy with Your Joplin Chiropractor

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is a non-invasive, effective way of helping with most types of injuries and many illnesses or chronic conditions. It is sometimes successful where everything else has failed, as well as being a front-line chiropractic treatment for certain patients. Auto accident injury treatment with HBOT can be very effective because many of the common injuries suffered in car accidents are amenable to hyperbaric oxygen therapy. HBOT is available in Joplin from our chiropractor at Skaggs Chiropractic, LLC.


Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

The idea behind HBOT is that if more oxygen can be introduced into your system, your body will be better able to repair itself. This type of repair can apply to healing from an injury, surgery or fixing damage caused by illness or a chronic condition. The chamber itself is filled with air that has a high percentage of oxygen and is pressurized to force more oxygen into your system. While you do nothing but rest comfortably in the chamber, your body can get the help that it needs to heal itself.

Auto Accident Injuries and HBOT

When you are in a car accident, you can end up injured in many different ways:

  • Whiplash
  • Back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Broken bones
  • Damaged tendons
  • Pulled muscles

While some of these injuries may require attention before the use of a hyperbaric oxygen chamber, they can all benefit from HBOT at some point during the healing process. Injured tissues sometimes do not receive enough oxygen, which may occur for a number of reasons. Damaged tissues may not transport oxygen as well as they should, or they may simply benefit from more oxygen than the body can deliver on normal room air. Introducing more oxygen into your system ensures that your body has enough oxygen in all of its tissues to do the necessary self-repair work.
