Pain Management with Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Pain Management with Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Acute and chronic pain often involve swelling, inflammation, poor circulation, neurological signaling errors, and changes in the brain’s perception of pain, all of which can be improved with hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT). HBOT helps us push past the limitations of your current state of healing that often create patterns of pain and other symptoms that it has difficulty overcoming.

HBOT’s ability to enhance blood flow, reduce swelling and inflammation, and stimulate growth hormones and stem cells have tremendous impacts on healing.

A common source of acute and chronic pain is inflammation and reduced blood flow. If chronically inflamed, we often experience pain that may change the mapping in our brain (cortical remapping), ultimately altering how we process pain, making us much more sensitive to it. It is important to treat acute and chronic pain before they lead to more detrimental health issues. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is an incredible healing tool that is able to reduce inflammation both short and long-term, improve circulation and oxygen to our tissues, release stem cells and growth hormones that are essential to tissue healing. Many patients are stuck in a state of dysfunction and cannot get past these obstacles, but with the proper boost you can restore tissue health through hyperbaric oxygen therapy.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy provides abundant amounts of oxygen in our body by dissolving oxygen into the fluid of our blood, known as plasma. Since oxygen is now free-floating in our plasma and is much smaller than the red blood cells that usually carry it to our tissues, we’re able to transport oxygen throughout the entire body and supercharge healing. With injury and pain there is typically inflammation and blood vessel damage that reduces the amount of blood flow (oxygen) we can get to the site of injury, limiting its ability to heal.

Common pain management issues that can be treated with hyperbaric oxygen therapy

Hyperbaric Oxygen therapy improves health at the cellular level, stimulating critical cells in pain reduction and healing that may not be activated properly by your body. Turning on these important healing mechanisms can improve the lives of many patients who are suffering from:

  • chronic joint pain (knee, shoulder, wrist, ankle, foot)
  • elbow tendinitis
  • rotator cuff strain
  • ankle sprains
  • post-surgical healing
  • plantar fasciitis
  • arthritis
  • fibromyalgia
  • chronic fatigue syndrome
  • headaches
  • chronic back pain
  • sciatica
  • neck pain

Not only does HBOT heal the parts of our body involved in pain, but it also heals the brain regions and their connections involved with the injured area. Hyperbaric truly offers complete healing by improving health at the cellular level of all structures associated with your pain.

    Hyperbaric oxygen therapy can help to rewire our brain, but also to reduce inflammation, while improving joint, muscle, and nerve health through improving circulation, oxygen, blood vessels, and bringing growth factors to the site of dysfunction
