Athletic Recovery

Anyone can experience the pain of injury or strain on the musculoskeletal system, from the elite athlete to the occasional hiker. HBOT has been shown to significantly reduce inflammation and pain. It is often prescribed by physicians to help reach a full recovery from athletic strain and injuries, and some US Olympic teams include it as part of their official medical techniques and equipment.

Benefits of HBOT for athletes include:

General

  • Increased collagen production

  • Reduced inflammation and pain

  • Faster, better recovery from sprains, tears, and bone fractures

  • Stimulation of new blood vessels

  • Enhanced recovery from medial collateral ligament (MCL) and anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries

  • Decreased susceptibility of reinjuring target areas

  • Rapid recovery from concussions and head injuries

  • Improved brain scan results

Amplified recovery from intensive training

  • Accelerated healing from muscle strain

  • Improved blood flow

  • Greater energy

Performance enhancement

  • Improved concentration

  • Increased serotonin levels

  • Accelerated recovery from jet lag

  • Decreased lactic acid
