The world watched as Brandi Chastain kicked the winning goal for the FIFA Soccer World Cup in 1999, and when she helped her team to win two Olympic Gold medals. Unfortunately, those years of success included numerous injuries, along with several knee surgeries to resolve her knee pain. Even after surgery and other adjunctive therapies, Brandi still woke up every night with knee pain. This went on for four years. In addition to coping with the pain itself, and a lack of sleep, she had to limit her running and coaching. She experienced such swelling and pain in her knee that she was limping by the end of an active day. She came to Bay Area Hyperbarics and used our hyperbaric oxygen chambers to repair her knee injuries. Now, Brandi sleeps through the night without pain, and her knee no longer swells, causing her to limp after a run. We’ve seen the same with numerous athletes who healed just like Brandi, so they can run longer distances, and do so faster, with less pain or swelling.
