Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy – What is It & What are The Benefits?
The benefits of this therapy are vast: it decreases the time needed to recover from sports-related injuries, improves wound-healing, aids in post-surgery recovery, increases overall circulation, revitalizes aging skin, decreases inflammation, and many MANY other anti-aging and health benefits…
WHY DO ATHLETES USE HYPERBARIC OXYGEN THERAPY?
Mild HBO therapy provides a highly effective way to increase the volume of oxygen in the blood and thus increase the many beneficial effects that oxygen has on the body. It allows the body to get the oxygen it needs to create ATP for energy and flush out the lactic acid that causes muscle fatigue. The elevated oxygen levels help athletes increase performance and recover more quickly after a workout. Increased oxygen delivery to the brain facilitates brain function, and enhances an athlete’s ability to make split-second decisions that could be a difference in the outcome of a game.
SUPERIOR ATHLETIC TRAINING MEETS ADVANCED RECOVERY METHODS
The next stop on my CERULEAN preview was the Hypobaric Adaptive Conditioning. This egg-shaped chamber simulates patterned low-barometric pressure sequences to condition the body and strengthen it at the cellular level. The whole experience felt like the pressure changes in an airplane, and you have to continue clearing your ears throughout the session. This modality is designed to help athletes condition their bodies and to help manage physical pain whether it’s chronic, transient, or from a physically debilitating disease or condition…
WHY ATHLETES SHOULD CONSIDER HYPERBARIC OXYGEN THERAPY
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is a powerful anti-inflammatory and wound-healing accelerator that could help athletes recover from sports-related injuries and stay healthy.
The Effects of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy on Post-Training Recovery in Jiu-Jitsu Athletes
The present study aimed to evaluate the effects of using hyperbaric oxygen therapy during post-training recovery in jiu-jitsu athletes…
