What is Oxygen Therapy?
Oxygen Therapy involves breathing pure oxygen through an individual mask while sitting in a pressurised chamber. The chamber seats 6 and is fully accessible for wheelchair users.
Oxygen is an essential substance in the repair of any tissue and the additional O2 provided can improve the repair, particularly of muscle and ligament tears, because the blood supply is often significantly damaged. Fracture healing may be accelerated, and it can help eliminate fatigue and recover stamina, it has also been seen to be beneficial in:
- Head injuries and concussion
- Spinal cord injuries
- General wellness
Oxygen therapy is taken using an individual oxygen mask, either in a pressure-controlled chamber (as seen in the photo) or at normal pressure depending on the condition.
