Whether you are dealing with a sports injury (ligament, tendon, bone), herniated disc (cervical, thoracic, or lumbar, etc), pre/post-surgical, auto-immune disorder, Lyme's, Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) or Non-Traumatic Brain Injury (Stroke etc), Autism etc.  HBOT has benefits for you.

Hands down, this is the "strongest chamber (soft shell) of its kind in the world and it's here in Lehi, UT!"  The AHA Flex 20s has a working pressure of 2.0 Bar, 2.0 ATA, or 15 psi!  Other chambers at local clinics can only reach approximately 1.3 ATA or 4.7 psi.  This working pressure is a huge difference in delivering increased Oxygen to your tissues during a "dive"!

Do your research and get more than just expensive "air therapy" or "Mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy"!

Know that it matters what type of Hyperbaric Chamber you are going into!

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) in recent years, has increased in popularity for healing.  Why though has it increased in popularity? It's complex and simple at the same time - it works to help the body work better at healing itself.  It has a host of benefits you can read about below.

How Does Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy work?

Did you know that in normal day-to-day life in room air, we only breathe approximately 21% oxygen?  HBOT is a treatment where an individual will breathe 100% oxygen inside a pressurized chamber.  It's the pressure that matters here and each chamber and manufacturer is different.  At Summit we are the only clinic in Lehi, UT, and the surrounding area to have a 2.0 ATA/15 PSI chamber.  You'll wear a specialized non-rebreather mask to aid in this increased oxygen uptake to your system.

This increased pressure is what allows the oxygen to dissolve more readily into the bloodstream thus speeding up healing and tissue recovery.  Time under pressure matters also matters based on your condition, meaning a 60 min or a 90 min dive.  Do you dive once a week or more than once a week?  We have Protocols in place via ANDI International and would gladly talk to you about those and your individual situation. 

Per the research (we'll post this soon as we figure out formatting here on the website with linked research articles) pressures above 1.5 ATA are necessary for most of these benefits listed below. 

Our chambers allow us to dive at 1.6, 1.8 and 2.0 ATA.  We also have dual oxygen valves and can dive more than one person (family member) at a time inside a chamber if necessary for a parent to help a child needing HBOT services.  

Benefits of HBOT:

  • Signal inducer of DNA for over 6000 genes (turning on good genes and turning off bad genes)
  • Stem Cell stimulation and mobilizes them to work at areas needed for repair
  • Stimulates the development of new blood vessels (angiogenesis) where circulation has been compromised in soft tissue and bone
  • Greatly reduces swelling and inflammation - reducing pain!
  • Stimulates the body's immune system to fight infection
  • Promotes collagen, bone and cartilage repair and regeneration
  • Makes certain antibiotics work better
  • Stimulates the mitochondria (aka Powerhouse - (brain) of the cell to enhance energy production (ATP)
  • Increase the production of superoxide dismutase which is one of the body's antioxidants and free radical scavengers
  • Improves quality of life due to the above processes working more efficiently.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) currently recognizes HBOT for 14 conditions, which are generally covered by insurance and treated in a hospital-based system.  These need to be approved by your insurance first.  Some may be treated in a non-hospital-based system such as ours here at Summit.  HBOT may also have benefits for other conditions not yet approved by the FDA. Internationally, there are over 200 + recognized conditions for HBOT uses.  Many of those conditions have undergone significant research and are commonly utilized and treated around the globe. 


Treatment for conditions not yet approved by the FDA is generally not covered by insurance and unavailable at hospital-based hyperbaric centers. As an independent clinic, Summit is able to accommodate the needs and circumstances of any patient whom our physicians believe would benefit from HBOT. 

Summit offers multiple package options for reducing the overall cost for your treatment needs.  We are available to discuss those needs with you and help you find workable solutions to your healthcare needs.

The Current Approved FDA List of conditions for HBOT use are as follows:

  • Air or Gas Embolism 
  • Carbon Monoxide Poisoning and Smoke Inhalation
  • Central Retina Artery Occlusion
  • Chronic Refractory Osteomyelitis 
  • Crush Injury and other Traumatic Ischemias
  • Decompression Sickness
  • Diabetic Lower Extremity Wounds
  • Failed Skin Grafts and Flaps
  • Gas Gangrene
  • Necrotizing Soft Tissue Infections
  • Non-Healing Wounds
  • Radiation Tissue Damage 
  • Severe Acute Anemia (Bridge Therapy)
  • Sudden Sensorineural Hearing Loss 
  • Thermal Burns


Not approved for Insurance coverage but research has shown the following benefit in treatment for these conditions listed and many more:

  • Sports Injuries:  Sprain/Strains of ligaments, tendons, or muscles.  Muscle soreness - Recovery. Concussion etc.
  • Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) may serve to provide a means of therapy to facilitate a speedier resumption to pre-injury activity levels as well as improve the short and long term prognosis of the injury (Babler and Rhodes, “The Role of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy in Sports Medicine.” Sports Med. 2000).

  • Reduce inflammation & pain, Optimize cellular function, accelerate recovery from on-field/court injury, stimulation of new blood vessel growth in injured tissue, mobilization of stem cells to area of injury, amplifies performance and recovery from training, decreases scarring.


  • Neuropathy:  Disc Herniations, Peripheral Neuropathy, Cerebral Palsy, Erb's Palsy, Bells Palsy, Diabetic Neuropathy etc
  • Most neurological conditions occur due to damage to the circulatory system and nerves. This impairs our ability to get oxygen to our brain and nervous system. HBOT massively increases our oxygen absorption, flooding our nervous system with the fuel it needs to heal and recover.

  • Neurological conditions:  Concussion/TBI, Post-Stroke, Dementia/Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, Autism etc
  • The brain is one of the most dense areas of the body for mitochondria. In order to improve the recovery and performance of our brain, it's imperative that we increase our body’s uptake of Oxygen. It is a necessary nutrient that helps our brain to heal! HBOT is the only proven method for increasing our oxygenation throughout the body. 

  • Decreased Healing Time and Recovery: Pre-surgical / Post Surgical, Stem Cells, Anti-Aging, Regeneration
  • HBOT is a definite proven winner in helping to activate Stem Cells.  It has been shown to stimulate recovery by improving oxygenation to tissues, stimulating angiogenesis and neogenesis, and reducing inflammation.  It's even been shown to have a significant effect on Telomeres and the aging process
  • Immunity:  Inflammatory Imbalances, Lyme Disease, Microbiome balance, CDiff, Thyroid Conditions etc
  • Most pathogens (unhealthy bacteria) that invade our bodies are anaerobes (live without oxygen). Most of our probiotics (healthy bacteria that make up our microbiome) are aerobes (need oxygen for life)! Hyperbaric oxygen therapy helps balance our immune system and microbiome by killing pathogens while at the same time feeding our good bacteria what they need to thrive.

  • Autoimmunity:  Arthritis (inflammatory), Chrohn's Disease, Irritable Bowel, Ulcerative Colitis, Multiple Sclerosis, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, etc
  • The anti-inflammatory effect, as described with other conditions, helps to repair and provide an environment where nerves, skin, joints, ligaments, gut lining, and other tissues can heal, have improved blood flow via RBC, and Plasma enriched with oxygen to begin healing.
