Athletes around the world seem to be gravitating away from drug treatments that support Big Pharma, and more towards safer, integrated therapies that boast performance or eradicate injuries and existing medical conditions. But, what exactly is the secret weapon that athletes are using these days?!
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is being used more and more frequently to speed up the healing of damaged tissues. When using HBOT, the surrounding air pressure in the chamber is increased to two or three-times normal atmospheric air pressure. During the patient’s time in the chamber, he/she is breathing 100% medical grade oxygen. The combination of oxygen and pressure allows the blood plasma to carry oxygen-rich blood throughout the body in an effort to aid in the fight against bacteria, inflammation, and a large number of aliments.
HBOT is also especially beneficial to athletes suffering from a concussion. If the athlete can get into a HBOT chamber within days of the head injury, he/she will typically not require but only a few sessions of therapy. Athletes suffering from post-concussion syndrome, even years after a TBI, find great benefit utilizing hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
At Oxify they use their (HbOT) therapy to treat sports injuries, from acute traumatic injury to muscle contusions and ankle sprains. It treats joint, ligament, and tendon injuries reducing the recovery time significantly.
Hyperbaric oxygen does not just help speed up recovery but assists in aiding and improving sports endurance and performance, enhancing energy levels, aiding recovery and expediting healing after injuries, up to 50%.
(HbOT) has been clinically proven to speed up recovery after an injury, up to 50%, thus promoting pain relief too.
Some sports stars who have used hyperbaric oxygen therapy include Marcus Rashford, Mohamed Salah, Neymar da Silva Santos, Michael Phelps, and LeBron James.
The use of hyperbaric chambers by sporting professionals is no new craze, and awareness is increasing in care, recovery and wellbeing every day. The use of (HbOT) is expected to grow at a rate of 6.5% year on year by 2025.
