Age-related diseases are a growing concern world-wide. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) has been shown, in some studies, to help combat degeneration by contributing to the regeneration of tissue and blood vessels. HBOT stimulates the development of new blood vessels in areas of the body where circulation is compromised and is utilized by some physicians to help treat Coronary Heart Disease, Macular Degeneration, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, Arthritis and immune related diseases.
Sport-related injuries are a substantial concern. Inflammation and pain play primary roles with respect to recovery. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) has been shown to significantly reduce inflammation and ameliorate pain. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy can promote fibroblast/collagen activity to accelerate and enhance healing from surgeries and wounds. New evidence supports HBOT as an adjunct and practical treatment to help moderate the effects of traumatic brain injuries and enhance SPECT imaging results.
Inflammation is an integral part to numerous medical conditions and coincides with nearly all types of injuries and insults to the body. Some studies have reported inflammation in Autism, Stroke, Diabetes, Alzheimer’s, Traumatic Brain Injury and many other conditions. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) has been demonstrated to substantially decrease inflammation throughout the body. HBOT drives increased levels of oxygen into the body, which travels through the plasma, subsequently reducing inflammation and pain. Studies have shown that HBOT increases anti-inflammatory levels and provides increased cellular aid to heal target regions.
