Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Southern Oregon HBOT at The Neuro Clinic offers the most affordable Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) in Southern Oregon. Learn about the benefits of HBOT and take a look inside our chambers below.
What Is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is similar to diving underwater with an oxygen mask. This is why an HBOT treatment is often referred to as a dive.
In the hyperbaric chamber, increased pressure forces the oxygen you are breathing (usually 96-98%) into your blood plasma. As a result, you have more oxygen available in your blood for your body to use in healing. The increased amount of oxygen produces many benefits including:
- Decreased Amount of Time Required For Healing
- Reduction in Swelling
- Reduction of Pain and Discomfort
- Assists White Blood Cells In Fighting Infection
- Increases The Formation of New Blood Vessels
- Increases Collagen Production
- Promotes Greater Tissue Strength.

What Is It Like In A Hyperbaric Chamber?
Step Inside And Experience A Dive For Yourself
Our chambers are over 8 feet long and nearly 3 feet wide. You can sit up or lie down and rest your head on the provided pillow. You will breathe 98% oxygen through a mask during your 90 minute dive.
Most patients use this time to take a nap, read a book, or watch a video on their iPad or kindle.
The pressure in the chamber is the equivalent of diving to a depth of 12 feet. Pressure builds slowly over 15 minutes so your ears have time to adjust. Just like on an airplane, you might need to clear the pressure in your ears by swallowing or by pinching your nose and trying to blow air through your nostrils.
Preparing For A Dive
Wear comfortable, cotton clothing
Leave your makeup at home. You will have to remove any makeup you are wearing before diving
Before entering the chamber, use the restroom and eat a protein filled snack.
Consult with a doctor before diving if you have a sinus infection, are pregnant, or have had trouble clearing your ears in the past.
