HBOT for Sports Injuries
in the Dallas Metro Area
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) was first shown to help military divers with injuries after spending long hours doing hard physical work under pressure. They noticed however, that when they surfaced, they felt refreshed and energetic and had decreased muscle pain and joint stiffness.
In recent years, professional and college teams have started using HBOT to treat sports injuries. From muscle contusions and ankle sprains to delayed-onset muscle soreness, HBOT has been used to facilitate soft-tissue healing.
During HBOT more oxygen is dissolved in plasma of the pulmonary vein via the alveolar, increasing the oxygen reaching the peripheral tissues. Because of the importance of oxygen in the aerobic energy system, many athletes and researchers have also investigated the possible ergogenic effects of HBOT.
From muscle contusions and ankle sprains to delayed onset muscle soreness, HBOT has been used for recovery to facilitate soft tissue healing, quicken healing time, reduce hypoxia and edema, and treating crush injuries and acute traumatic peripheral ischemia.

When using HBOT while training, the body receives increased cell growth and regeneration immune support, detoxification, new capillary growth and improved neurological functioning. Less lactic acid build up, greater endurance and less muscle fatigue are also reported.
The number of sports professionals using this treatment for recovery and endurance are increasing every year by the NHL, NFL, NBA, and MBL. While little has been published on hyperbarics and sport related injuries, the treatment is being spread by improved testimonials with hope that more research and studies will be done in the near future.
