The Costa del Sol registers an important advance in technological and medical vanguard applied to the health with the Hyperbaric Medical Center of Estepona.
This medical centre, which opened its doors in July 2014 as a result of the personal concern of a couple who have experienced the beneficial effects of Hyperbaric Oxygenation (HBO), has become a reference centre in the province of Malaga and Andalusia in the treatment and cure of diseases with Hyperbaric Oxygenation.
Hyperbaric Oxygen = Quality of Life
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBO) is a medical specialty that consists of introducing the patient into a hyperbaric chamber where he is subjected to a higher pressure than the atmospheric, to breathe 100% pure oxygen. Under these conditions, the oxygen becomes medicine and initiates a therapeutic activity in the human body, causing effects such as:
– Reduction of inflammation and edema.
– Improves sequelae for radiotherapy treatments.
– Accelerates recovery in neurological damage.
– Stimulates collagen production.
– Promotes healing in difficult wounds and diabetic foot avoiding amputation.
– Accelerates recovery in fractures.
– Promotes the elimination of stress and chronic fatigue.
In short, the oxygen circulating through the blood in a higher concentration makes the body improve at a general level.
This type of treatment is especially indicated for healing wounds in general and those that are difficult to heal, such as diabetic foot or certain limb ulcers. However, it is also successfully applied in post-operative recovery, support for plastic and reconstructive surgery, anti-aging, cerebrovascular accidents, burns, autism, stress, tiredness and fatigue, helping to improve the quality of life in general. Patients with fibromyalgia are obtaining very satisfactory results and it is also applied to improve the effectiveness of oncological therapies and to improve or avoid sequels in patients with chemotherapy or radiotherapy treatments.
The advantages of undergoing treatments with Hyperbaric Oxygenation for sportsmen and women are also worth mentioning, as it favours the prevention and healing of injuries and contributes to improving physical performance.
The Estepona Hyperbaric Medical Centre is endorsed by a prestigious medical team and nurses trained to carry out these treatments. Likewise, the hyperbaric chambers of the Estepona Hyperbaric Medical Centre are of the American brand Perry, of the latest technology, and are made of totally transparent material, has direct communication with the medical assistants and meets the maximum technical and sanitary guarantee conditions required, as well as the highest exclusivity of the market as it is a single-seater.
