Athletes’ injuries are characterized by tissue damage and edema, impeding the normal flow of oxygen to the injured area. The injured tissues demand a large amount of oxygen and the only effective way to increase their blood is to dissolve large amounts of it in the plasma.
The increase in dissolved oxygen in the plasma caused by this increased pressure inside the Hyperbaric Chamber, allows the damaged tissues to obtain the adequate amount of oxygen and heal quickly.
These are the benefits of hyperbaric medicine when there are injuries:
Reduction of edema and pain in the acute state.
Acceleration of recovery and return to training activity
Acceleration of the healing process of fractures
In cases where the lesion requires surgery, the hyperbaric chamber decreases the recovery time.
