New Healing Options at Minot Health Clinic: Hyperbaric Chamber

Written by: Erin Beene
RN Trisha Fennern with the new Hyperbaric Chamber Therapy Unit at Minot Health Clinic

This futuristic-looking chamber is actually a new way to treat many ailments and is on the cutting edge of health technology, now available to Minot citizens. Trisha Fennern, FNP-C from the Minot Health Clinic, introduced the two new Hyperbaric Chambers this past summer. The first of its kind in this portion of the state, Fennern was excited to present the concepts to the city of Minot and start helping people feel better.


As with any new technology, especially in the medical community, new concepts need some explaining and understanding before patients start coming on board with the treatment methods. These Hyperbaric Chambers—the Minot Health Clinic has one smaller and one large chamber—create a pressurized environment where more oxygen is forced into the blood and plasma in order to encourage them to increase healing and create a healing therapy for a multitude of illnesses and conditions. As with any medical therapy, each case needs to be discussed with a provider, but Fennern said that the chamber can be used to help conditions like anxiety, PTSD, concussions, COVID lasting symptoms and even some injuries which require specific accelerated healing.


They are currently offering a 20% discount to any active duty members and veterans for the month of December. Before therapy can begin, each patient will first undergo a consultation in which goals and expectations will be discussed, as well as options and suggestions for the amount and time of therapy. Although the number of therapy sessions can vary, a patient can expect to receive anywhere from 10 to 40+ sessions in the chamber for top goals. The chamber sessions usually last about an hour and Fennern said that the best results come from doing several sessions per week.


Fennern said the Hyperbaric Chamber sessions are painless and can be very relaxing but are actually revitalizing the body. She mentioned that there are no known side effects to the therapy beside occasional ear discomfort from pressure. Fennern mentioned that this type of therapy works directly with Red Light Therapy, and together they can work even more effectively. If anyone is interested in this new type of therapy and how it may be able to help, please give Minot Health Clinic a call to schedule a consultation or discuss pricing options: (701) 837-1551.
