Hyperbaric Therapy

Hyperbaric Therapy

What is hyperbaric oxygen therapy Melbourne ?

Oxygen is the cornerstone of human life. Oxygen allows for cellular growth, tissue repair, energy and so much more. Almost every cell in your body requires oxygen in some way shape or form for survival.

At sea level our air is made up of approximately 20% oxygen. Every breath results in your lungs filling with air. Complexed chemical reactions then occur that transfer that oxygen into the bloodstream to be transported around your body. But it doesn’t end there…

The actual deliver of oxygen to your cells is greatly dependant upon atmospheric pressure.

When we go up in altitude this pressure reduces resulting in a reduced ability to push oxygen into your cells. The reduced ability to use oxygen results in a decrease in cellular function often causing many symptoms commonly known as high altitude sickness.

How does Hyperbaric work?

Just like going up in altitude reduces pressure, going down increases it! By increasing pressure your cells uptake more oxygen stimulating growth and healing.

Our mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (mHBOT) increases the pressure to a light 4psi, or approximately 1.3 times the normal atmospheric pressure. This mimics about the same pressure you’d feel going down about 3 meters under water.

The affect is increased oxygen uptake by the cells and can, in theory, potentially increase blood oxygen delivery by up to 10 times! This is believed to stimulate healing in many tissues, but most notably in the nervous system.

What can be Helped?

Most people comment that Hyperbaric therapy Melbourne is a relaxing joyful experience. Through stimulating oxygen supply to your organs, muscles, brain and other tissues, healing is often improved and inflammation reduced.

Early research has suggested these changes may be the result of boosting the number of stem cells in circulation, stimulation of nerve growth and healing, modulation of the immune system, promotion of new capillary growth and reduction of inflammation.

Is it safe?

Mild Hyperbaric therapy has been shown to be highly safe over decades of use. The pressures used in mild hyperbaric therapy are quite low and are equivalent to the pressure you would feel at the bottom of a diving pool.

Whilst this pressure is very safe and has very minimal risks, there is still a need to be able to ‘pop’ your ears to equalize pressure, similar to what you would feel when descending in an aeroplane. For some this can take some practice, but most can affectively achieve this equalisation without a problem.

Frequently Asked Questions

Many people are often concerned whether the practitioners they are looking to can help them. That’s completely normal and we understand this. But there truly is only one true way of knowing whether we can help you or not and that is with a thorough assessment. What we can say is that we promise to be truthful, open and honest with our findings and also work with you to achieve goals you would like to achieve in ways you feel comfortable in achieving them. We understand for many people they still feel a little insecure, and that’s ok. So if you would like to have a brief chat with one of our practitioners about your case prior to coming in, arrange a 10 minute phone appointment with one of our practitioners so we can quickly work out if your problem is one we often work with.

Your initial assessment is the most important appointment you’ll have with our team. Your initial assessment provides us with the time to gather all the important bits of information we need to adequately identify the cause of your problems and work with you heading forward. It is comprised of various health, neurological, physiological and biomechanical tests designed to not only find the cause of your problem, but to help us identify any other potential problems that might be developing.

Often we may require the use of further assessments such as our digital foot scanning technology or heart rate variability technology. In some circumstances we may need to refer you for specialized imagery, such as X-Rays or MRI, or for various laboratory tests. Rest assured our team will walk you through this process so there are no worries or fears along the way.

The complete process of an initial assessment can take up to one hour depending upon the complexity of your problem.

Most health funds have some form of rebate for Chiropractic services. A quick call to your private health insurance provider should be able to answer this for you. Usually there is a separate section for ancillary healthcare which includes Chiropractic, Osteopathy, physiotherapy and other similar health care practices. So simply give your insurer a call and they’ll be able to advise you on your level of coverage.

In terms of our office, when you attend for your appointment we’ll provide you with an itemized receipt which you can use to immediately claim your assessment off. This allows you to keep track of your rebates without any stress at all.

Chiropractic care is not directly medicare rebatable in Australia. However, our practitioners do like working with your GP to provide an integrative approach to your health. As such, our team do accept Enhanced Primary Care (EPC) arrangements which allows for some rebates to be paid by medicare.

If you’re unsure or have specific questions in relation to the use of your EPC plan, just give our office a call and we’ll discuss its use with you further.

We have our own specific parking available right behind our office. Feel free to park within this space. Otherwise, there is free parking available on the road alongside our office on Curtin Street.

Tottenham station is approximately 1.5km along Ashley Street and Dobson’s Reserve bus stop is also a mere 50m from our office. Many people attending our office get here via the bus and train.
