Mary Marchbanks, President and COO, says, “We are thrilled to open our state-of-the-art facility at American Institute of Healthcare and Fitness ® in Raleigh.  Oxygen plays an important role in healing soft tissue injuries and wounds, and reducing the risk of infection.  We’ve enjoyed great success in our Texas operation, and are proud to bring our expertise to Raleigh.  During the first year of operation at our Texas Sports Hyperbarics facility, we were able to help the top Dallas Mavericks NBA players maintain peak performance and recover from back to back games during last season’s play-offs.  Raleigh native, Josh Hamilton, of the Texas Rangers credits us with helping him to stay in the game after cracking his ribs during the World Series last year.  We recently treated Josh at Carolina Hyperbarics to help him recover more quickly from his hernia surgery after this year’s World Series.”
