In addition to pain, people with RSD/CRPS suffer from swelling, inflammation, skin discoloration, and lead to muscle atrophy and loss of movement. Increased levels of oxygen from HBOT help the body repair damaged tissue and begin healing. People see a reduction in pain, often able to eliminate the need for pain medications. Swelling and inflammation improve, muscles begin working and people are able to get back to life.
Suzie spent the last 6 years basically stuck in bed with pain from RSD/CRPS. After various failed treatments and surgeries, her doctor told her there was nothing more they could do. Then she found Dr. Spiegel and hyperbaric oxygen therapy. After the first week of treatments, her swelling disappeared and she was almost PAIN-FREE. After treatments, she has almost made her goal and come completely off her morphine pump! See how HBOT can help change your life too!
HBOT treatments for RSD/CRPS offer relief when so many other treatments fail. Patients often experience no more swelling, no more pain, and an increase in quality of life. Many patients receiving HBOT treatments can reduce or eliminate their need for pain medications. In addition, they see an increased range of motion and strength in the muscles. Finally, many are able to return to work and a normal everyday routine.
Pain, muscle weakness, and muscle atrophy are common for people living with RSD/CRPS. In many cases, people are confined to a wheelchair, unable to walk more than a couple of steps. HBOT gives them their legs back! Dr. Spiegel and National Hyperbaric staff love watching people take their first new steps after HBOT treatments.
Doug, a disabled military veteran, talks about how finding the Healing Heroes Network and Dr. Spiegel changed his life.

Loss of limb function or paralysis often occurs after a stroke. While therapy can help, many still suffer from the loss of function. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy floods the brain with 100% oxygen, helping damaged tissue repair. This often helps and even reverses stroke-related paralysis. For example, listen to how Ron regained the use of his right hand and foot after oxygen treatments.
Strokes block the oxygen supply to areas of the brain. If not restores, this contributes to cell death. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy delivers 100% oxygen to the brain. This helps the brain heal and repair damaged tissue. As a result, speech and memory improve, mobility increases, limb paralysis improves, and much more. We celebrate each victory as we watch a patient’s self-esteem, dignity, and economic stability return with HBOT.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is FDA approved for 14 conditions and most insurances cover it. However, there are many more conditions that show positive results with HBOT treatments, such as stroke and RSD/CRPS for example. While not covered by insurance, many patients are seeing amazing results from HBOT and National Hyperbaric.
During labor and delivery, complications can occur. In many cases, these complications disrupt the flow of oxygen to a baby's brain. Known as hypoxia, this lack of oxygen to the brain can result in long-term disabilities or developmental delays. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy floods the brain with 100% oxygen, helping the brain repair damaged tissue. For example, listen to little Zachary's story and how he is improving.
As many as 3 million sports- and recreation-related concussions occur every year in the United States. While these brain injuries often heal with time and rest, many can experience post-concussion syndrome months or years later. As a result, they experience brain fog, severe headaches, and poor sleep. Hyperbaric oxygen helps the brain heal from these injuries and, as a result, most patients see their symptoms disappear. Listen to this boxer's story and see how HBOT can help you regain control of your life again.
Your brain needs oxygen to function and repair damaged cells. HBOT floods the brain with 100% oxygen, allowing it to heal, even years after an initial TBI. Restore your memory, concentration, and regain your quality of life. For example, listen to Nathan and his story. As he says, "This is the first time in a long time that I've been hopeful enough to start thinking about long-term goals!"
Dr. Oz's guest Dr. David Perlmutter discusses how Alzheimer's disease is inflammation in the brain and how a healthy diet high in good fat, exercise, and hyperbaric oxygen therapy can help reduce the inflammation. In addition, he discusses how the brain demands a lot of energy and that energy comes from oxygen. HBOT delivers high levels of oxygen to the brain and can help treat and improve the symptoms of Alzheimer's.
After years of failed treatments, many patients with chronic Lyme disease struggle to find help. Between pain, fatigue and other symptoms, daily life becomes near impossible. Hyperbaric oxygen, or HBOT, kills the organisms responsible for Lyme, ending symptoms and giving life back to patients. Listen to how HBOT helped treat Mega's Lyme disease and, as a result, how she was able to get back to her life.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is FDA approved for treating non-healing wounds. This patient had a wound on her leg and was told by her doctors it would take over 6 months to heal. With HBOT, her leg wound healed in less than 6 weeks. As a result, she was able to get back to an active life sooner and reduce her risk of infections and complications.
As a cancer survivor, you have fought through many different treatments, including radiation. Unfortunately, while radiation is great at killing cancer, it can damage healthy cells as well. This damage is radiation necrosis and hyperbaric oxygen therapy is FDA-approved to treat radiation necrosis and help your body heal from the damage. For example, listen to this cancer survivor's story on how HBOT changed his life!
Tammie speaks about how radiation treatments for breast cancer caused so much pain and took away her ability to drive. She drives past another hyperbaric facility near her home just to visit Dr. Spiegel and his team for her treatments. They have reduced her pain and given her back the ability to drive. In addition to helping her pain, Tammie found that hyperbaric oxygen helped improve her skin condition and reduce her allergies.
Radiation treatment works great at killing cancer cells. On the other hand, it also works at killing healthy cells. Radiation necrosis can occur years after cancer treatment ends, but hyperbaric oxygen therapy is an FDA approved treatment. Listen to Jack's story of how HBOT helped him 11 years after cancer treatment.
Patients with mitochondrial dysfunction struggle daily with a body that doesn't have enough energy to function. When the mitochondria in the cells don't work properly, the body doesn't work. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy increases mitochondrial biogenesis and autophagy and, as a result, new and healthy mitochondria form. As a result, many patients, like Summer in this video, can say goodbye to medications and often experience remission.
Doctors still don't know what causes fibromyalgia. But, we do know that there is some sort of malfunction with the neurotransmitters in the brain. These neurotransmitters are responsible for pain, thus explaining the increased pain fibro patients experience. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy delivers 100% oxygen to the brain so it can repair and heal. This helps reduce pain symptoms and increase the quality of life.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy delivers 100% oxygen to the brain, helping it heal and repair.
