Sports Injury and HBOT

In the last decade, Hyperbaric    Oxygen Therapy has been   promoted in scientific literature or complementary therapy for sports injuries.  Every week, increasing numbers of elite sports stars are using HBOT to boost their   endurance and accelerate their recovery from musculoskeletal   injury, ligament and cartilage damage—even bone fractures.

By giving the high concentrations of oxygen possible in a chamber, the blood flow to the damaged area can be reduced but the  supply of oxygen can paradoxically be increased.  This unique property of oxygen  is a major factor in reducing tissue swelling and returning the tissue to normal.  

 HBOT is also used by biohackers and anyone with a systems-thinking approach to bettering their own biology because of the real benefits for our general health and wellness too.

HBOT Helps All Kinds of People

It is used to help patients suffering from MS, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, infections, arthritis and a huge range of other medical conditions.
As we all know, oxygen is vital for life, and life cannot exist without it.
It follows that oxygen is essential for effective healing and recovery.
During HBOT, you enter a state-of-the-art chamber where you breathe pure oxygen at  atmospheric pressure. These conditions enable an increased supply of oxygen to be taken in by your lungs and dissolved into your blood.
 A good analogy is this: if you try to dissolve a teaspoon of sugar in a cold glass of water, it will only partly dissolve. Warm up the water and all the sugar will dissolve. This is what happens to oxygen under pressure. The extra oxygen in your body will boost your energy, fitness and general wellbeing
and enhance your body’s ability to heal itself.

General guidance, especially on protocols and the likelihood of benefit, is obtained from the coordinator of the Oxygen Helpline Petra Kliempt BSc MPH PhD, who is the Hon. Specialist Trainer in Hyperbaric Medicine to the NHS in Scotland.  The Oxygen Helpline and MS National Therapy Centres are also assisted by the Hon. Medical Adviser Emeritus Professor Philip B.James

Our centre operates a self-referral process.

It is always recommended that clients visit their GP or Consultant before commencing HBOT.

There is no intention implied or otherwise that HBOT is given so with the intention of it being a cure diagnosis or as a preventative for any disease.  Any references, studies or testimonials on our website, or in our literature does not imply that similar results will occur when the same therapy is experienced by another.
