Sports Injuries

In the last decade, Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) has been promoted in scientific literature or complementary therapy for sports injuries. Every week, increasing numbers of elite sports stars are using HBOT to boost their endurance and accelerate their recovery from musculoskeletal injury, ligament and cartilage damage — even bone fractures.

Here at the Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Centre in London, we help patients from a wide range of sporting backgrounds, including professional footballers, jockeys, long-distance runners and performance athletes. Our clinic is frequented by well-known Chelsea and Arsenal players keen to recuperate from injuries and get back out on the pitch as quick as possible.

The power of oxygen for sports

The idea of using HBOT for sportspeople originates in scuba diving, where HBOT is used to improve the symptoms of decompression sickness or “the bends” after divers surface too quickly. Divers using HBOT also report that their joint pain and stiffness goes away and their concentration becomes sharper. They also report feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. HBOT is now the prescribed treatment for decompression sickness, and its effectiveness in the diving world has triggered the emergence of hyperbaric medicine in the competitive sports world.

With Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy at our clinic, you’re breathing in pure oxygen in a private, purpose-built brand new Hyperbaric chamber at up to 2 times the normal atmospheric pressure (most clinics operate a multi-person chamber and only up to 1.4-1.6 times sea-level atmospheric pressure) which increases the oxygen-carrying capacity of your blood and allows your body to absorb 10-15 times more oxygen than normal.

HBOT boosts sporting performance

HBOT has become an invaluable resource for athletes, footballers, jockeys and rugby players, both professional and amateur. By promoting cell growth and regeneration, HBOT is known to improve both the short and long-term prognosis of a sports injury, as well as facilitate a quicker resumption to pre-injury activity levels.

Many eminent sports stars are openly using HBOT as a way for healing injuries and boosting their performance. Cristiano Ronaldo of Real Madrid tore his hamstring and, despite a normal recovery time of 3-4 weeks, returned to play in 9 days because of HBOT. And after only 5 sessions of HBOT, endurance runner Ellan Laquaniello improved her performance by 35%.

The past decade has seen a rise in both the intensity of competitive sports and the frequency of injuries. This has led prominent sportspeople to search for alternative methods of boosting their endurance and injury recovery time, in order to stay fit and well and maximise their time spent out on the field. This is why many sportsmen are turning to HBOT, now regarded as one of the most effective complementary therapies for sports injury recovery.

HBOT helps sports professionals recover

American football quarterback, Joe Nameth, suffered concussion and decided to try hyperbaric therapy to restore his health. He started off with severely limited blood flow to the left temporal lobe of his brain. After 40 HBOT sessions, he states that he saw marked improvements in blood flow and cognitive functioning.

Here at the Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Centre, we encourage both amateur and professional sportspersons to try a course of Hyperbaric Therapy.

The number of hyperbaric sessions you need will depend on the nature and severity of your sports injury, which will be discussed during an initial consultation with our hyperbaric oxygen therapy expert.

HBOT is a simple, pain-free and non-invasive remedy. To find out more about how our Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy can assist with sports injuries and sports health, contact us on 0203 823 1212 or [email protected], or book a consultation.

Although HBOT having been used for many years as a therapeutic intervention for a variety of indications and as well as sports injuries, the evidence for its use is not proven by “randomized prospective controlled clinical experiment or trial” which is considered to be the strongest form of scientific evidence by conventional medical standards.

It is always recommended that clients visit their GP or Consultant if there is any medical problem before commencing HBOT.

In accordance with UK and EU legislation we confirm that there is no intention implied or otherwise that HBOT is given so with the intention of it being a cure, diagnosis or as a preventative for any disease. Any references, studies or testimonials on this website do not imply that similar results will occur when the same therapy is experienced by another.
