Hyperbaric Oxygen treatment is great for Athletes.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT), is the process of inhaling  100 percent pure oxygen. This method has been proven to improve the cognitive function of athletes who have suffered from post-concussion syndrome and expedite the recovery of sports-related injuries. It also reduces inflammation, helps athletes recover from surgeries and intensive training in a shorter period of time. As a bonus,  it can also enhance an athletes performance.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy may sound extremely simple and unbelievable to many, but we assure you it’s incredibly beneficial in expediting wound healing.  It is well-known that 16-time Olympic champion, Michael Phelps, uses a hyperbaric chamber to aid in his recovery from training, and hyperbaric chambers are being used by many professional athletes to replicate high-altitude conditions and boost levels of oxygen-rich red blood cells. So why are so many athletes turning to HBOT? It’s because when we inhale pure-oxygen into our lungs, our blood will carry the rich oxygen throughout our body and our organs, helping to fight bacteria while stimulating the release of substances called growth factors and stem cells. This helps to speed up and multiply the absorption of oxygen molecules to damaged and impaired tissues.
At the Eustache Institute, we utilize hyperbaric oxygen treatment for those who suffer from sport-related injuries to relieve symptoms, accelerate recovery, and optimize performance. We have treated many athletes who have experienced anterior cruciate ligament injury. This type of injury occurs when the ligament gets stretched or tears when the foot is securely planted and the knee locks, twists or pivots at the same time. This type of damage regularly occurs in basketball players, football players, soccer players, and gymnast, if an unexpected change in direction stresses and then damages the ligament.  We’re pleased to have helped improve the quality of life of many athletes we have helped with HBOT, and we look forward to assisting more.
