How Hyperbaric Helps Arthritis
Did you know that arthritis is the leading cause of disability in the United States? According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 23 percent of all adults in the U.S. have arthritis. This debilitatingly painful disease causes aching, stiffness, and swelling around the joints. Unfortunately, without treatment, arthritis can cause widespread problems throughout the body, affecting other organs and causing chronic conditions. LyfeWell Integrative HealthCare in Johns Creek, GA, has revolutionized non-medical and non-surgical arthritis treatment to help patients find arthritis relief by using science and technology in a device known locally as Hyperbaric Plus™.
In order to best understand how Hyperbaric Plus™ can serve as a treatment for arthritis pain, it is essential to first understand the underlying causes and symptoms of arthritis. There are many different types of arthritis, but almost all of them are caused by normal wear and tear on the body that leads to inflamed cartilage tissue. The tissue rubs against the bones in the joint, which causes painful symptoms such as chronic aching, immobility, or sharp pains.
As we previously mentioned, arthritis can affect more than just the joints in the body. Rheumatoid arthritis, for example, attacks the autoimmune system and inflames organs that are essential to help fend off disease and other ailments. Moreover, arthritis in general can lead to the inflammation of the circulatory system, which can be excruciatingly painful and problematic.
Hyperbaric Plus™ Treatment For Arthritis
Hyperbaric Plus™ is an innovative treatment that combines two non-medical and non-surgical therapies: pulsed electromagnetic field therapy (PEMF) and hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT). This results in increased blood flow. HBOT is an exposure to oxygen that is then pumped through the better-flowing circulatory system. The oxygen is able to infiltrate the cells that have been awakened; oxygen promotes healing and decreases inflammation. Since inflammation is a perpetrator of many symptoms of arthritis, the reduction of inflammation leads to a reduction of the painful symptoms experienced by those with arthritis.
What To Expect During Treatment
Hyperbaric Plus™ is a proprietary treatment created by LyfeWell to bring together two of the best therapies science and technology have created. The treatment takes place in a large capsule equipped with a comfortable chaise lounge. Many people bring in a pillow and blanket for the 90-minute treatment session and end up taking a nap the whole time! Others bring in a smart device to help entertain as the time passes. Patients are also given a two-way radio that connects directly to a staff member who is ready to address any needs or concerns during the treatment.
The treatment begins with pulsed electromagnetic field therapy for 20 minutes. This helps the body open the pathways for increased blood flow. PEMF is a series of small electric pulses that awaken the cells in the body to prepare them to receive the oxygen. Then, the rest of the treatment is the HBOT portion of the therapy. The hyperbaric oxygen therapy exposes the patient to three times as much oxygen as one would be typically exposed to during the day. The main difference is HBOT is oxygen and isn’t laced with harmful pollutants that make up the air we breathe outside. Many people equate sitting in an Hyperbaric Plus™ chamber to being on an airplane. When the HBOT starts, the air pressure increases, and the patient will likely need to release the pressure in their ears by popping them.
