Sports & Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Age-related diseases are a growing concern world-wide. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) has been shown, in some studies, to help combat degeneration by contributing to the regeneration of tissue and blood vessels. HBOT stimulates the development of new blood vessels in areas of the body where circulation is compromised and is utilized by some physicians to help treat Coronary Heart Disease, Macular Degeneration, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, Arthritis and immune related diseases. Additionally, HBOT helps promote collagen activation to help battle the signs of aging including skin damage and elasticity.

Clinical studies have demonstrated the benefits of HBOT for age-related degenerative conditions by providing cellular aid to all organs in the body to promote health and beauty.

Circulation and General Blood Flow with HBOT

  • Stimulates the Formation of New Blood Vessels
  • Combats & Prevents Circulatory Diseases, Including Coronary Heart Disease & Diabetes

The Heart with HBOT

  • Improves Oxygenation to Cardiac Tissue
  • Improves Heart Muscle Functioning After Heart Attack
  • Reduces Risk of Heart Attack

The Brain with HBOT

  • Stimulates the Creation of New Brain Cells
  • Improves Memory and Reaction time
  • Promotes the Creation of New Brain Connections

The Joints, Soft Tissue & Bones with HBOT

  • Enhances Treatment for Arthritis
  • Reduces Inflammation & Pain
  • Accelerates Healing
  • Improves Mobility & Stamina

The Eyes with HBOT

  • Helps Combat Age-Related Macular Degeneration
  • Moderates Glaucoma Symptoms
  • Reduces Compromised Blood Flow to the Retina

General Health with HBOT

  • Increases Energy levels
  • Reduces Stress & Anxiety
  • Promotes the Creation of New Stem Cells
  • Supports the Immune System
  • Decreases Risk of Infection

The Skin with HBOT

  • Reduces Excessive Skin Damage From Ultraviolet Radiation Exposure
  • Promotes Collagen Production & Maintains Skin Elasticity
  • Improve Wound Healing & Reduces Scar Formation

Study: NFL Athlete Improves Cognitive Functioning with HBOT

In 2011, a case report was published involving an NFL player who suffered multiple concussions. This subsequently led to the development of hydrocephalus, which required emergency shunt brain surgery. The star athlete continued playing and won the Super Bowl, only for his shunt to fail, which led to additional emergency back-to-back surgeries. Following his surgeries, he received 40, one-hour treatments of HBOT. After the treatment protocol, he was independently assessed with neurocognitive evaluations and single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) brain imaging by the Amen Clinic in California. Marked improvement in 5 out of 6 indices on the MicroCog assessment for cognitive functioning (a computerized assessment sequence designed to detect early signs of cognitive impairment) was confirmed, in addition to substantial enhancements with respect to SPECT imaging.
