Wonderful results! I started seeing Dr. Rob in early 2008 after I had tried several different traditional methods. I was in perpetual pain. It hurt to sit, to stand, to move and to walk. I was fine if I was absolutely motionless, but the moment I moved, I had extreme lower back pain. I had to get up and stretch every 20 minutes or so when seated at a table. I didn't even realize how much he had helped until recently. I come in for adjustments just once a month and after a little over three years have taken for granted just how great I've felt. I had a flare up recently and immediately called the office for an appointment. Dr. Rob fit me in between other patients and within a week I felt back to my new "normal" I can have dinner with my family, and sit at the table for family game night without uttering: "ow" if I get up. I can't thank Dr. Rob and his helpful and pleasant staff enough for getting and keeping me pain free!

Tips & Advices
This depends on the facility. Patients should call to find out if they'll need a referral from their physician prior to making an appointment.
Aside from hyperbaric oxygen treatment, most wound care centers offer:
  • Debridement: The removal of dead skin and tissue surrounding the wound. This can be done surgically, using a whirlpool bath, syringes, enzymes that dissolve the tissue, or wet dressings that dry on the wound and absorb the dead tissue.
  • Dressing: Wrapping the wound in a protective film, gauze, gel, or foam.
  • Compression stockings: Tight-fitted fabric sheaths that encourage blood flow.
  • Artificial skin: A covering that is applied to the wound for several days as it heals.
  • Ultrasound: The use of sound waves to promote healing.
  • Growth factor therapy: The use of materials naturally produced by the body to encourage quick cell growth.
  • Negative pressure therapy: Creating a vacuum around a wound to encourage faster blood flow to the area.
Depending on where the treatment is administered, hyperbaric oxygen treatment  can cost $100- $1,000. After insurance is applied, patients may have a copay of $10 -$50 or a coinsurance fee of 10 percent to 50 percent.
Most wounds should heal within two to six weeks. An individual should seek chronic wound treatment if a wound has not begun to heal after two weeks or is not completely healed after six.
Most health insurance plans cover wound care. Patients should check with the clinic and their health insurance provider before seeking treatment to be sure.
