Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is back!
Did you know that your body's tissues need an adequate supply of oxygen to function?
When human tissue is injured, it requires even more oxygen to survive and heal.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy increases the amount of oxygen your blood can carry by breathing in oxygen at a higher pressure that outside of the chamber.
With repeated scheduled treatments, the temporary extra high oxygen levels encourage normal tissue oxygen levels, even after the therapy is completed.
Here are a just a few conditions that the Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) benefit.
Traumatic brain injury
Infection of skin or bone that causes tissue death

Walk Into Better Back and Spine Health
Walking helps with avoiding stiffness: Your muscles and joints are bound to become a little tight when you sit or remain in the same position for hours. Walking stretches the muscles in your back, hips, and buttocks and also eases tension in your tendons and ligaments.
Muscles Will Become Stronger: The muscles in your back help support your spine and keep it properly aligned. Weak muscles may pull on your spine, causing some of the vertebrae to move out of alignment. If your muscles become weak, you're more likely to experience pain, stiffness, and decreased range of motion.
Misalignments, called "subluxations" by chiropractors, are painful and can lead to other issues. Subluxations may affect muscles, tendons, and ligaments, causing these structures to tighten and become less flexible. Walking strengthens your muscles and reduces your risk of developing subluxations.
Circulation Improves When You Walk: Any kind of movement, including walking, improves blood flow throughout your body. Blood carries oxygen to the cells in your body and is essential for the normal function of muscles, tissues, and nerves.
Walking May Improve Joint and Disc Function: Improving your circulation also benefits the discs in your spine. Rubbery, fluid-filled discs between each vertebra cushion your spine, act as shock absorbers, and help you move easily. These discs work best when they're full of fluid. Fluid naturally moves in and out of the discs during the day and may decrease depending on your movements.
Walking makes it easier for fluid to flow into the discs, which can mean less pain and stiffness for you.
Participants with chronic low back pain were assigned to one of three groups: walking, physical therapy, or group exercises. Those in the walking group improved just as much as the physical therapy and exercise groups, according to the study, which was published in American Family Physician @https://www.aafp.org/afp/2015/...
Walking, in addition to chiropractic treatment, can help you keep your back flexible and reduce pain. Have you been struggling with back pain? Contact our office to schedule an appointment with Dr. Jason Baker.
Colon Hydro Therapy
"It is often said that you are what you eat, I say you are what you absorb." - Benard Jensen, D.C.
Let's learn about colonics
Colonics are also known by other names such as "colon lavage", "colon hydrotherapy" or "high colonic".
A colon irrigation is a safe, effective method for cleansing the colon of waste material by repeated, gentle flushing with water Specifically, a colonic is used to accomplish the following...
- It Cleanses the Colon: Toxic Material is broken down and removed from your body, once this is done your colon can begin to cooperate as it was meant to.
- It Exercises the Colon Muscles: The build up of toxic debris weakens the colon muscles and impairs it's functioning.
- It Reshapes the Colon: When problem conditions exist in the colon, they tend to alter its shape and structure which in turn cause more health problems.
- It Stimulates Reflex Points: Every system and organ in the body is connected to the colon by reflex points.
- It Hydrates the Body: Our bodies are made up 60-70 percent water. With the use of pure water in the colonic, our bodies are able to absorb much needed clean and pure water to hydrate the cells of the body, so that they can function at a higher rate as well as dilute the toxins that are already present within the body.
