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. As oxygen serves as one of the primary mechanisms to reduce inflammation, HBOT creates the environment where this process is stimulated and enhanced. Studies have demonstrated the benefits of HBOT for inflammation with the following:

Promotes Anti-Inflammatory Process at the Cellular Level
