Exploring Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy: Rewiring Wellness and Vitality

Posted by Dr. Brock Johnson on November 11, 2023

Embark on a journey of rejuvenation and cognitive enhancement with our deep dive into the regenerative realm of anti-aging and brain health.

This article illuminates the groundbreaking potential of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) in cell regeneration, explores the pivotal role of the nervous system in decelerating the aging process, and presents Neuropractic Rehab & Wellness’s innovative approach to neuromuscular revitalization.

Uncover how tailored neuropractic care, coupled with advanced therapeutic techniques, can fortify your neuromuscular integrity, amplify your mental clarity, and usher in a new horizon of health and longevity.


As we age, the ability to replicate and regenerate our cells slows down, and the vascular oxygen delivery system reduces, leading to visible skin changes and muscle weakness. Conditions like Osteoporosis, Erectile Dysfunction, and Cardiac Arrest manifest as part of this degenerative process.

Degeneration within the brain impacts oxygenation and neuron firing rates, presenting as Dementia, Parkinsonian Tremors, or Disequilibrium. Similarly, nerves, muscles, and bones experience degeneration, seen as nerve numbness, muscle pain, and Osteoarthritis.

The decline in nerve conduction velocity leads to muscle tightness and pain, which in turn causes irregular joint movements and further wear, culminating in conditions such as Osteoarthritis.

Basically, the brain, spinal cord, and nerves control every system of the body. The faster and more balanced the brain fires the slower we degenerate or age. 

The Nervous system requires 3 main things:

  • Oxygen (higher the better)
  • Fuel (vitamins, minerals, good fats, glucose, and neurotransmitters)
  • Activation (speeding up neurons by using them through reflexes and brain exercises)

These 3 aspects create “Neuroplasticity.” It is the capacity of the brain to change and rewire itself from the stimulation of learning and reflexes.

At Neuropractic Rehab & Wellness we have 4 ways to slow aging and degeneration.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

We have 2 brand-new, hard-shell oxygen chambers. These are unique because they can increase the pressure inside to 15 psi. which is significantly greater than the soft shell, tent-like versions. So, while you are breathing 100 % oxygen through a mask the pressure can push oxygen molecules across cell membranes into areas of your body that do not normally have that much beneficial oxygen.

For instance, increasing oxygen in areas like the nerves or sinuses can kill viruses like “long haulers” Covid-19, Herpes Simplex “mouth and genital sores,” and Herpes Zoster “Chicken Pox “or “Shingles” later on in life.

Athletes and “weekend warriors” use Hyperbaric Oxygen Chambers (H.B.O.T) for soft tissue injuries, reducing their healing time significantly. Muscles, ligaments, tendons, and joints heal faster even after recent surgeries.

This therapy helps in the brain by stimulating stem cells to make new vessels to deliver a permanent increase in oxygen to make new neurons and increase the metabolic output of the cells reducing or preventing Dementia. In other words, it makes the brain faster and clearer.
H.B.O.T. has been proven to have immediate results with treating the symptoms of Autism and Strokes.

Neuropractic and Massage Therapy

I have a Doctorate in Chiropractic from Northwestern Health Science University and completed 4 additional years of postgraduate education in Functional Neurology.

I practice Chiropractic Neurology which is the activation part of the Nervous System. I essentially balance brain function by stimulating the underfiring regions or turning on the brake to the areas that are overfiring using reflexes, eye movement patterns, balance training, or specific adjustments. Functional Neurologists treat the “level of the lesion.” These lesions are areas in the nervous system that do not work like they are supposed to function.

For example, a brain lesion might not be able to be seen on an M.R.I. but can be measured in an exam. Most of us have a side of the brain that we are dominant in that makes up our personality and who we are as a person. So, if we are left brain dominant then the right side of our brain is the underused side and it should degenerate the right side of the body faster. One would experience tighter and more painful muscles which can roll the shoulder forward or appear to shorten the right leg. If not fixed over a period of time, it can pinch nerves in muscles which will give us numbness or create muscle injuries.

A muscle does not tighten, becomes weaker, and more painful all by itself. It is signaled to do so by the brain. We are all built with this protective mechanism to prevent paralysis and dislocations of limbs. It is our safety mechanism. Otherwise, 100% of us would fall down, hit our heads at a young age, and then become paralyzed. Instead, we can be a little sore, rest, and spring back to normal.

As we age, our recoverability slows down or degenerates. This is where Neuropractic comes in. We activate the brain, which speeds up the switches to nerves, which loosens muscles, and stabilizes joints.


We also have Quantitative Electroencephalogram (qEEG) with Neurofeedback technology for measuring real time brain function/mapping and Neurogym for strength training using the brain reflexes to prevent injuries, because 90% of people joining a gym either get hurt, are embarrassed, or don’t know what to do so they stop going. We train them safely so they can exercise at home, on vacation, or in a gym with all the knowledge to be successful.
