Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Heals Sports Injuries

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Heals Sports Injuries

And Improves Sports Performance

Hyperbarics (HBOT) has been shown to help heal not only primary sports injuries, but also secondary inflammatory responses in muscles, bones and brains. Many professional athletes use HBOT to decrease the amount of time it takes to heal from their injuries (by up to one half)

Professional athletes and the fitness minded are turning to Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy to help improve their sports performance and to achieve a rapid recovery from surgeries and injuries.

Injuries to Bones and Tissues

HBOT accelerates healing and regrows damaged tissue, blood vessels, muscles, ligaments and bone by delivering 400% more oxygen to damaged tissues.

Head Injuries

Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) disable many athletes. It is estimated that up to 25% of athletes do not recover from their chronic neurocognitive problems. Fortunately, many recent HBOT studies of the brain with imaging reveal that HBOT significantly decreases swelling and inflammation, revitalizes penumbra angiogenesis, and mobilizes stem cells as an aid in healing traumatic brain injury (TBI).

She had 4 previous knee surgeries. For the past five years, she was unable to sleep through the night. When she later became a coach, she needed to run all day, but her knee would balloon up like a ball. After several treatments with hyperbaric oxygen therapy, she experiences almost no inflammation.
