Sports Injuries & Recovery
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy can play an important role in athletic performance and recovery of athletic activities. It adds a competitive edge as it reduces muscle fatigue and the buildup of lactic acid. It can also help accelerate the recovery process from injuries, surgery, and enable athletes to get back on the field faster.
Evidence suggests that hyperbaric oxygen therapy may:
- Reduce inflammation and pain
- Optimize cellular function
- Stimulate new blood vessel growth in injured tissue
- Increase performance and recovery time in training
- Decrease scarring
