Physical maintenance and recovery is fundamental to an athlete’s ability to perform at optimal levels regardless of the sport. HBOT works by boosting the body’s remarkable capabilities of self-healing.
Sports injuries often occur in tissues like tendons and ligaments that have low circulation to begin with. HBOT can quickly and effectively deliver oxygen to the damaged tissues beyond what typically occurs with normal circulation. The combination of pure oxygen and therapeutic pressure is the key, raising the arterial levels of oxygen 10 to 15 times higher than that produced by normal atmospheric pressure. This stimulates the growth of new blood cells and accelerates muscle tissue formation. It reduces inflammation, thereby reducing pain and swelling from injury or overuse.
While this therapy may seem complex on a cellular level, the treatment itself is simple. If you’re looking to treat chronic, nagging, injuries, maximize recovery from surgery or acute injuries, or just want to boost your performance, call us to discuss your goals. HBOT might just be what you need to achieve excellence.
