I have had severe problems with vertigo, general dizziness and lack of balance for over a year. Luckily, I found Dr. Azzolino’s group. It’s hard to express just how much better my life is now that the whole world isn’t constantly spinning around…

I highly recommend Dr. Azzolino’s office. Dr. Azzolino definitely pours his heart and soul into his work, and is incredibly knowledgeable. I went to see him due to symptoms we suffered from chemical exposure, and we went to him after looking for answers for many months. When other doctors were not able to help us, he was reassuring and provided immediate treatment as well as exercises we could do at home, and this was the turning point for us in our recovery. I only wish we had gone to him sooner and that we lived closer to his office, as a 2+ hour drive is difficult to do regularly, especially with kids. But, he and his office staff have been awesome to work with – even remotely, quickly responding to emails and phone calls.

Dr. Azzolino and his other staff are very warm and caring and down-to-earth, at the same time Dr. Azzolino is efficiently and accurately doing sophisticated analyses and treatments with cutting edge techniques to do work that almost seem miraculous!

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Hyperbaric Oxygen is an accepted therapeutic practice for the treatment of numerous diseases, physical injuries and dysfunctions. The technology was originally developed by the diving industry and advanced by the military for dealing with the bends or decompression sickness.

“Hyper” is simply an increase, while “baric” refers to pressure. As a procedure or therapy, Hyperbarics is simply the process of increasing the atmospheric pressure around the body.

The higher quantity of oxygen will be dissolved into the circulatory system and body fluids. Oxygen is something the body fundamentally feeds upon. It is necessary for sustaining life and it is required to heal the body.

While subjected to the additional pressure inside a hyperbaric chamber and breathing oxygen, it is the amount of oxygen carried by the plasma that increases – not the amount of oxygen carried by the red blood cells. The basic result of this effect is that oxygen is delivered further and deeper into the tissues and cells. Damaged tissues and cells that are deprived of oxygen due to a trauma can then receive the oxygen required for healing.

A hyperbaric chamber is capable of providing enough oxygen to supply the body’s demand, even in the absence of red blood cells. In essence, Hyperbaric Oxygen can keep a person alive in the absence of blood. This has been a known, approved and accepted fact since the 1950s.

Hyperbaric Oxygen is a very low risk, non-invasive and humanitarian therapy that significantly increases the oxygen content in the body.

The question remain, Is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy approved? Read about this on our blog
