Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

On many occasions, doctors consider the hyperbaric therapy as a “cure” method for different pathologies, making use of clinical protocols, specialized literature and clinical evidence for each specific application of hyperbaric medicine.

It should be recalled that hyperbaric medicine is generally prescribed by a physician as a complement to other treatments, since high doses of oxygen make the healing and health recovery process more efficient.

The hyperbaric chamber represents an efficient tool that, together with conventional medical treatments, gives patients a better chance of recovery.

Doctors are duly familiar with the benefits of hyperoxia, and hyperbaric chambers are the most efficient method to get it.

In conjunction to regular exercise, hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is getting more widely used as part of the treatment and rehabilitation protocol for ligament, bone, joint and muscle injuries. Its use significantly reduces recovery times and enables sportsmen to get back to the competition sooner, considering all the benefits.

The benefits of the HBOT is becoming more and more popular among sports doctors and rehabilitation teams, prescribing HBOT to athletes both professional and recreational.

The use of HBOT after and intense sport routine, for competition or training purposes, helps the athlete recover faster, being able to return to the competition or training sessions sooner and in better physical conditions.
