Nowadays, more and more people are involved in sports activities of any kind. A direct and natural consequence is the increasing number of injuries.
The biggest problem of an athlete, especially if we talk to an advanced one, is the loss in competitions.
The athletes often ignore minor accidents and begin having irreparable health problems.
For these reasons, most athletes have chosen hyperbaric oxygen therapy for a quick recovery, without sequelae, and they keep in shape improving fitness.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy allows a massive increase in the amount of oxygen carried in a tissue, which under normal conditions leads to increased density of capillaries (the so-called process of “angioneogenesis“).
A dense network of capillaries allows a supercharged oxygenation of the locomotor system, resulting
in performance and increased endurance.
In the case of trauma and fractures, one of the most basic ingredients needed to repair tissue is oxygen that has a major importance in the post traumatic recovery.
Studies abroad show that fractures treated with HBOT (hyperbaric oxygen therapy) recover five times faster.
For ligament ruptures, hyperbaric oxygen also leads to shorten the recovery
time (eg. in case of a cruciate ligament recovery is reduced from 6 months to 3 months). To increase the effectiveness of this therapy post traumatic individual treatments must be
performed immediately after the injury.
