Ventura County Visits Us for Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for Radiation Damage
Patients who undergo radiation will need time and proper care to recover, as radiation damage to the hard and soft tissues of the treated area will occur to varying degrees. If you have undergone radiation and live near Ventura County, then Hyperbaric Centers of California can help. We provide hyperbaric oxygen therapy for radiation damage.
Radiation damage leads to several different conditions, from radiated bowel syndrome to radiation mucositis.
By stimulating the growth of new tissues to replace damaged ones, hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) helps your body recover from these conditions more efficiently. Radiation damage-focused HBOT at Hyperbaric Centers of California has treated cystitis, proctitis, laryngeal radionecrosis, dermatitis, enteritis, and surgical wounding in radiation-damaged tissues.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatments for Radionecrosis and Osteoradionecrosis
It is not uncommon for radiation patients to visit Hyperbaric Centers of California to recover from soft tissue radionecrosis and osteoradionecrosis. Radionecrosis is the death of tissue resulting from radiation treatments, with osteoradionecrosis specifically referring to the death of bone tissue. Hyperbaric oxygen treatments for radionecrosis and osteoradionecrosis helps patients undergoing radiation therapy heal.
In order to recover from osteoradionecrosis, the body needs to grow new blood vessels to feed the growth of new cells. However, swelling and damage to the small arteries within the irradiated area are common roadblocks to blood flow and new cellular growth.
As evidenced by extensive research and FDA approval, HBOT reliably stimulates the growth of new tissue and blood vessels after radiation treatment. The flood of pure oxygen in a pressurized environment reduces swelling, stimulates the growth of new blood vessels, and helps blood flow increase to the area.
If you have undergone radiation treatment and need help recovering, hyperbaric oxygen therapy might be right for you. Hyperbaric Centers of California will help you receive this treatment in a relaxing, comfortable environment. Call us today to get started.
