Pott. County Sports & Family Chiropractic Council Bluffs location is one of the few providers in the metro area that offers hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
“The hyperbaric oxygen chamber will close and create a pressurized chamber that’s four times more than the atmospheric pressure,” Wiechmann said. “The chamber will pressurize, then generate oxygen so the pressure expands the oxygen gas as it adds 95 to 98% oxygen into the chamber to where (the person) is inhaling that into the lungs and going straight to the blood to increase oxygen in the body.”
The Mayo Clinic notes Benefits from this therapy include reducing pain and inflammation, promoting new tissue growth, improving blood flow, healing damaged brain cells as well as many others.
“It can really speed up the recovery time for a wide variety of injuries,” he said.
A ribbon cutting ceremony will take place on Sept. 29 from 4 to 5 p.m. to celebrate the new location. There will be treats from Mad Ox Bakery and refreshments from Nutrition 712 available.
