Welcome to the Hyperbaric Centers of Southwest Florida Blog!
An introduction to our blog, and a couple references of HBOT research and news from around the world!
We have added a blog page to our website so we can start to share more information regarding all the various conditions for which Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) has been shown to be beneficial. I say “beneficial” because there are only 15 indications that are currently approved to be covered by insurance in the United States. However, if you look outside of theUnited States: Europe, Russia, and China successfully use HBOT for many more indications:

Imagine having a diagnosis of a condition that can benefit from a therapy, and not only never learning of the treatment, but not even being given the opportunity to explore the option. There are dozens of “Off-Label” or alternative uses for HBOT; Stroke recovery, Fibromyalgia, ChronicFatigue, Lyme Disease, Cancer, and more. So, we have decided to find the various studies and case reports regarding the numerous conditions that can benefit from HBOT and provide the information to you in our weekly blogs.
Have a great week!
