THE HYPERBARIC CHAMBER IS ALLY OF PATIENTS WITH ARTHROSIS

Arthrosis is a chronicl desease that attacks the joints and is a major cause of disability in adults over 60 years, but may also suffer younger people.

It is a very frequent and 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 joint, or deformation.

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

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

How is the treatment?

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

What are the benefits of hyperbaric chamber treatment?

  • Reduces swelling
  • Regeneretes tissues
