Frequently Asked Questions
How soon will I notice a difference in my symptoms?
The amount of sessions needed vary with each disease process. Most people start to notice some improvement within the first 5 sessions.
How many sessions will I need in total?
The standard recommendation for stroke and brain injury is 40-80 sessions. This is what has been studied the most in the research literature. Other health issues may take less time.
Will my insurance cover this treatment?
Unfortunately, no. Hyperbaric oxygen treatment is only covered by insurance if treatment is done within the hospital setting.
Are there any side effects?
The most common complaint is ears popping, similar to going up in an airplane.
What will I feel when I'm in the chamber?
Aside from the initial re-pressurizing of your ears, you won't really feel any other sensation.
What can I do during treatment?
You can sleep, read a book, play games on your phone, check your email...anything that you might normally do while lying on the couch. Except eating and drinking.
