THE HYPERBARIC CHAMBER IS AN ALLY OF THE PATIENTS WITH ARTHROSIS

Arthrosis is a chronic desease that attacks joints. It is a major cause of disability in adults over 60 years old, but may also be suffered by younger people.

It is a very frequent degenerative condition that can cause pain, due to the friction of the bones by lack of cartilage; Stiffness after some period of inactivity; inflammation and edema, by fluid accumulation in the joints, or even deformation.

Although there is no cure for arthrosis yet, there are treatments that relieve symptoms and improve patients´ life quality. The Hyperbaric Oxygenation Treatment (HBOT) is very efficient in reducing pain and inflammation. The greater arrival of oxygen to the articular and tendon tissues desinflames and repairs tissues, which helps in the recovery and mobility of the patient.

94% of the patients with arthrosis treated with the hyperbaric chamber presented a favorable evolution after performing an average of 25 sessions in hyperbaric chamber. 86% of the patients were satisfied with the treatment.

How is the Hyperbaric Chamber treatment?

The patient enters the pressurised hyperbaric chamber where he receives pure oxygen at a pressure higher than the normal atmospheric one, without receiving any other drug. This higher pressure favours the arrival of oxygen to all tissues of the body and triggers a serie of physiological effects.

Which are the benefits of the hyperbaric chamber treatment?

  • Reduces swelling
  • Regenerates tissues
  • Helps the immune system
  • Relieves pain
  • Promotes recovery and mobility
