Sporting Injuries & Performance 

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for Sports Injuries & Performance. 
 
The traditional recipe for injury treatment for most recreational athletes is focused on rest, rest, and more rest. However, studies show that HBOT is a truly game-changing therapy for injured athletes. By using atmospheric pressures of up to 1.45 ATA, HBOT helps injured tissue absorb many times the amount of oxygen normally available. A 60-90 minute HBOT treatment allows oxygen to penetrate deeply into blood, plasma, and cerebral fluids, increasing healing and circulation where it’s needed most 
In addition to being crucial to the healing of sports injuries, HbOT may enhance mental focus and energise you to compete at your peak. 
How does HBOT help to heal sports injuries? 
HbOT could help reduce recovery time by up to 50%! 
Many sports injuries involve strains and sprains, which naturally cause swelling and edema (accumulation of excess fluid in connective tissue). These natural reactions to injury compress blood vessels and restrict the vital flow of oxygen-carrying plasma and red blood cells to the injury site. Cells and tissues surrounding the injury site become starved for oxygen, which impedes healing. In extreme cases, cell and tissue death can occur. HbOT may promote faster healing in common sports injuries such as: 
 
High Ankle Sprains 
Fractures 
Pulled Muscles 
Achilles Tendinitis 
HBOT sporting performance benefits 
Athletes can take in up to 16 times more oxygen with HbOT, and by flushing tissues with high oxygen levels, they may experience a wide variety of benefits, including: 
 
Faster bone and cartilage regeneration 
Increased stem cell activation 
Reduced muscle fatigue and exhaustion 
Decreased pain 
Anti-inflammatory benefits 
Increased blood flow, especially in poorly irrigated tissues 
Help torn muscles and tendons 
 
Performing at your peak capability 
What athlete isn’t looking for an edge? Many endurance athletes train at altitude to increase red blood cell production and the oxygen-carrying capabilities of their blood. Many athletes are also turning to HBOT treatments to see similar gains in performance by increasing circulation and the oxygenation in their blood.

Please note that although the use of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy has been established in the treatment or management for a variety of indications, the evidence for its use remains uncertain which means that it is not proven by “randomized prospective controlled clinical experiment or trial” or “double blind study” which is considered to be the strongest form of scientific evidence by conventional medical standards.
