Pain Reduction with HBOT

November 20, 2021

The pain relief benefits of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) have been proven by thorough research over the  years. When cells are being given a greater oxygen supply, inflammation is reduced, stem cell production is increased 8 fold, and nerve endings are repaired so the healing can become more efficient. Thus, the patient’s pain from the injury decreases over time as they heal. 

One simply cannot go to any oxygen chamber for these pain reducing benefits. A patient needs to go to a medical grade hyperbaric facility operated by licensed medical professionals that is well maintained to the highest standards. The chambers must use medical grade oxygen and be at proven pressures so the patient can receive the best benefits from the medical grade hard chambers. If these systems are in place, the FDA approves Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)  for certain conditions. 

The science of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy has been around for 350 years. HBOT has been proven to decrease pain in many different types of pain syndromes, such as those caused by injury, non-healing wounds, burns, sonic injuries, radiation damage, infection injury and much more.  According to a pilot study, https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/32947434/, HBOT significantly reduced pain in Rheumatoid Arthritis patients. Range of motion also increases when inflammation is lowered. Along with RA pain, HBOT is being researched to help with other conditions like lupus, fibromyalgia, and chronic fatigue syndrome. HBOT at Advanced Hyperbaric Recovery INC can improve Quality of Life for many patients. 

As with RA, HBOT is being considered for those suffering from Lyme Disease. Not only does the increased oxygen kill the bacteria, but HBOT also helps the patients reduce  their suffering from the disease as well, improving their quality of life. Gayle L was a patient at Advanced Hyperbaric Recovery INC, and discovered she had Lyme Disease. “When I came in for my first treatment and met the rest of the team- I knew I was going to be okay and well taken care of no matter who was in the driver’s seat!…I thought for a few days that I had a temperature because I just felt “warm” inside. I realized I hadn’t felt what it felt like for my immune system and body to be working- I am feeling what “normal” feels like.” Gayle described that she began to feel much better after session 30. Talk to your doctor or to one of our physicians to see if your condition could benefit from HBOT, and our team can answer your  questions on how it can reduce your inflammation and aid in the healing process. 

The sooner the patient discovers HBOT, the faster healing can occur, and pain cycles can be improved or stopped all together. You have the ability to help others alleviate suffering right now, share this information and change lives.
