Oxygen is the essential ingredient for life and an important element in stimulating healing and recovery. Where the body’s tissues suffer from reduced blood flow – as the result of an injury, illness, or other medical condition – insufficient oxygen is supplied to damaged tissues and vital organs.
Breathing high levels of oxygen under hyperbaric conditions dissolves more oxygen in the bloodstream, enabling oxygen delivery to areas of the body where the circulation is diminished or blocked, and improving the rate of recovery.
Extra oxygen has additional benefits because it greatly enhances the ability of white blood cells to kill bacteria and fight infection. It also reduces swelling and allows new blood vessels to grow more rapidly into the affected areas.
In cases of neurological disorder, HBOT has been shown to increase the uptake of oxygen by brain cells and decrease inflammation. HBOT is a useful adjunctive therapy in the treatment of strokes, autism spectrum disorders, cerebral palsy, and neurodegenerative diseases.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is also widely used by elite sports stars to help boost their endurance and recovery, and improve their resilience to injury and exhaustion. The increased levels of oxygen help the body to recover from strenuous activity, improving recovery from a range of sports-related conditions, including musculoskeletal injury, ligament and cartilage damage, and even bone fractures.
