Posted on Wednesday, May 10th, 2017
Inflammation following an injury of the spine can be linked to long-term disabilities as a result. This is a natural response, but can limit the amount of blood and oxygen reaching the area, posing a serious problem that will affect recovery time.
The treatment of spinal cord injuries by using HBOT has become more and more popular, with both patients and physicians reporting it has been successful in speeding up healing times. The study into this showed that the HBOT successfully reduced the secondary damage of the injury and the inflammation the body produces. This study has been fantastic for the HBOT industry and so more and more patients can get treatment that helps them recover quickly.
