Ridgefield Chiropractic & Wellness Center, headed by Dr. Christopher Mascetta, DC, announces the new addition of mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy to its list of services. Mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (mHBOT) is a painless procedure in which a person is exposed to increased pressure, allowing greater absorption of oxygen to reach the cells within the body. This, in turn, provides several healing and therapeutic benefits. Many chronic debilitating diseases are treated using mHBOT. Some of these conditions include Autism, Lyme disease, Parkinson’s, Cerebral Palsy and Stroke. Mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy helps to push Oxygen deeper into an individual’s body, by increasing the atmospheric pressure from 1 ATA to 1.3 ATA. With mHBOT one will increase the intake of oxygen from 21% to 24%. With the added pressure allowing Oxygen to saturate beyond your red blood cells, the Oxygen can reach the plasma and cerebral fluid. This pressurized environment helps to promote healing and overall wellness by creating faster healing for wounds, reducing swelling at a much quicker rate than normal thus restoring/increasing blood flow to restricted areas. Hyperbaric therapy helps on three levels, by allowing more oxygen to reach tissues, cells and bodily fluids. In conclusion, Mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is a safe alternative that helps aid the body's healing abilities with injuries and chronic progressive diseases in conjunction with providing overall health and well-being.

Ridgefield Chiropractic and Wellness Center is located at 10 South Street, Suite 205 in Ridgefield. For more information about mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy please contact Geoffrey Bossio at 203.731.4971.
