The treatment with a hyperbaric chamber produces an increase in the cerebral blood flow, is anti-inflammatory from vasoconstriction and reduction of edema, stimulates the healing process of wounded tissues, regulates the inflammatory processes, has a direct effect on some neurotransmitters and increases the CNS Oxygen consumption. All these beneficial effects of Oxygen show diverse clinical improvements in patients with neurological conditions and a greater rehabilitation capacity.
In the case of Parkinson’s Disease, Hyperbaric Oxygen has an anti-inflammatory effect, produces a redistribution of blood flow to a Central Nervous System level, stimulates the recovery of nervous tissue and acts on neurotransmitters. This combination of effects results on improvements reported by the patients treated such as the decrease in tremor and especially decreased stiffness, resulting in better quality of life.
