Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a process of breathing pure oxygen in a pressurized chamber. By pressurizing the oxygen, it can dissolve in the plasma, spinal fluid, and other body fluids — allowing oxygen to reach and regenerate more cells than without the therapy. Many injury conditions may respond well to hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is an expense that insurance companies may be hesitant to pay. If hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a viable option to heal your injury (sustained due to the negligence of another), our Minnesota Personal Injury Attorneys will fight for your right to receive fair compensation to cover the additional expenses.

How Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Works
Pressurize oxygen increases the capacity of the blood to transport oxygen throughout the body. The blood becomes hyperoxygenated. Normally, oxygen is carried by hemoglobin in the red blood cells. It reaches only the cells with adequate blood supply. Once oxygen is pressurized and dissolves in the blood and body fluids, it can be transported to all tissues, providing the possibility of new cell life and healing.
