There are many alternative options available for patients that suffer from depression. And the team at Skaggs Chiropractic, LLC, your Joplin chiropractor, are increasingly optimistic about the results that patients have experienced with hyperbaric treatment for depression. We are also seeing great results in patients utilizing hyperbaric sessions in as part of their PTSD treatment.
At our chiropractic center, we utilize a fully-immersive hyperbaric chamber where we are able to completely control the level of oxygen as well as the overall pressure that the patient will experience. The 90% - 100% of oxygen helps to increase the absorption of oxygen into the cells. This blast of oxygen helps the cells to heal and repair themselves more quickly and also helps to increase blood circulation. If you have depression that is linked to a head injury, the benefits can be two-fold, with the increase in oxygen also helping to repair the damage caused by the injury.
It is important to note that this treatment method is still in the experimental phase and has not been approved by the FDA for the treatment of conditions such as PTSD and depression. However, the data that has been amassed through various studies are overwhelmingly positive, and many patients have found relief through adding the use of hyperbaric sessions as a complementary treatment for their condition.
