With 2019 just beginning perhaps it’s time to start thinking about you and your health.
You can begin the year by actively looking to take on any ongoing health problems that have been a burden to you during the past year. This could be complications from a condition such as diabetic wounds, or perhaps you are recovering from cancer and have received radiation treatment that has come with some complications such as soft tissue damage.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy can offer treatment for a range of conditions and has proven results in enabling people regain a quality of life they are looking for. People often try more mainstream approaches and sometimes they are successful and other times they may not be. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is often seen as an alternative or even a last resort. However, this should not be the case as Wesley Hyperbaric is a long-established facility located in the Wesley Hospital precinct – operated by fully qualified medical professionals. The process is safe, friendly, proven and non-invasive – as such, it doesn’t need to be your last resort.
How does it work?
The process involves the patient sitting within a pressurised environment breathing 100 per cent oxygen. The patient experiences the same changes a diver would when diving to a depth of 14 metres. The highly oxygenated blood stimulates the growth of new blood vessels in a hypoxic wound, allowing quicker healing. Bacteria are also affected by the high levels of oxygen which also helps the healing process.
Take some time to read more about the conditions we treat and if you think you could benefit from hyperbaric oxygen therapy then seriously consider talking to your doctor or specialist on your next visit. If you need more information then please give us a call or email us.
We hope you have a healthy and happy 2019 and we look forward to continuing to offer a better quality of life to our patients.
