Lyme Disease

At Oxford our synergistic approach to addressing the symptoms of Lyme’s disease combines multiple therapies.


Lyme Disease is cased by a corkscrew-shaped bacterium (spirochete) called Borrelia burgdorferi that is primarily transmitted by deer ticks, and, on the West Coast, black-legged ticks. Lyme Disease is found in more than 60 countries, including the United States.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate that 300,000 people are diagnosed with Lyme disease in the US annually. Diagnosing Lyme can be difficult, therefore, many people who actually have Lyme may be misdiagnosed with other conditions.

If Lyme disease is not diagnosed and treated early, the spirochetes can spread and may go into hiding in different parts of the body. Weeks, months or even years later, patients may develop problems with the brain and nervous system, muscles and joints, heart and circulation, digestion, reproductive system, and skin. Symptoms include: Chronic arthritis, fatigue, headaches, joint inflammation in the knees and other large joints, memory loss, mood changes, sleep disorders, and many other symptoms which can mask other diseases and disorders.

There was a special study done of patients with Chronic Lyme Disease, including both adults and children who had not been helped by intravenous antibiotics. The 66 Lyme Disease participants experienced an average of 85% improvement in their condition using hyperbaric oxygen therapy, after every other medical therapy had failed. Our clinical experience also attests this finding. Individuals with Lyme Disease experience increased energy, better sleep, and decreased joint pain.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Chamber

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)

A specialized form of medical treatment administered by delivering 100% pure oxygen to the body through increased atmospheric pressure greater than 1.3 ATA. in an enclosed hard chamber.

Suit Therapy

Neuro Physical Therapy and Suit Therapy

The Oxford Recovery Center integrates conventional Physical Therapy and Suit Therapy programs to accelerate the development of new motor skills that strengthen muscles and teach the brain and body how to sit, stand, and walk.

qEEG Neurofeedback

Neurofeedback/qEEG with Real-time Brain Imaging

The Oxford Neurofeedback program evaluates brain activity patterns and teaches self-regulation of brain function through quantitative electroencephalography (qEEG). Also known as “brain mapping,” qEEG analyzes electrical patterns at the surface of the scalp.
