Treating Sport-Related Injuries with Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) in Portland, Oregon

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. HBOT is often utilized by physicians and individuals to help reach a full recovery from high-impact insults to the body and is currently used by some of the U.S. Olympic teams to treat sports-related injuries as a part of the official medical techniques and equipment. Studies have demonstrated the benefits of HBOT for sports-related injuries with the following:
