Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for sports recovery

Training, competition, and recovery go hand in hand. Integrate hyperbaric oxygen therapy into your sports recovery program to power up the immune system, oxygenate muscles, and accelerate the healing process for sports injuries.

Sports performance can hurt.

Injuries and chronic pains are today’s news in the sports world.

Athletes are prone to various concussions or tears of ligaments which lead to even more serious problems during the most important years of sports performance.

Sports players seek to recover fast and return to the competitive world, hyperbaric oxygen therapy can improve healing times and maximize the body’s potential of recovery to get back into play.

Practice recovery with the same zeal you work out.

HBOT can bring quick and efficient results for long-term injuries. Studies have shown that HBOT can work effectively as adjunctive therapy in conjunction with various other treatments, part of a recovery program to harness the highest healing potential for any type of sports-related injuries.

Exhausted after intense training? Integrate HBOT into your recovery routine.

You need to take a breather to stay competitive.

Hyperbaric oxygen sessions inside the OxyNova 5 chamber are the natural method to deal with recovery and relaxation after tough workouts and training.

HBOT is a powerful adjunctive treatment that any athlete can use to improve their athletic performance and enhance the body’s natural healing process.

The hyperbaric chamber is something new that I added to this camp. I get in when I can, after training sessions, whether is refuelling rehydrating, or recovering that way. Doing all the little things, making sure that going into this fight we've crossed all our t's.

The training is always different depending on the competition that lies at hand. After that, we go back home, eat more and get my body right. I might get into the hyperbaric chamber.

Deontay WilderDeontay Leshun Wilder is an American professional boxer. He held the WBC heavyweight title from 2015 to 2020, making 10 successful defenses.

I usually lying here at least one hour and a half inside, sometimes get a little sleep and chill out in. So yes, is good. I try to do it at least three, four times per week. I just feel nice and relaxed inside, you know it's quite warm in here. I have lots of oxygen inside coming in, it's good for my body and for my recovery.

Usually I go home and I sleep in my hyperbaric chamber, four or five hours. It helps me a lot with my recovery and my energy level.

The medical secret of professional athletes is hyperbaric oxygen therapy.

HBOT works by sending oxygen at 1.4 ATA pressure through the circulatory system to decrease inflammation, it’s one of the principal anti-inflammatory agents in the medical world.

The systemic action of oxygen will improve vascular flow, increase stem cell release and activation, regenerate bone and cartilage, and slow the process of scar formation.

Oxygen brings you that extra edge for competitive gameplay

HBOT sessions help increase red blood cell production in order to maximize the oxygen-carrying capabilities of the blood.

This increase in blood circulation and oxygenation brings a systemic improvement to all body processes which can optimize all functions, especially those related to sports performance.

Professional sport is physical and cognitive performance

  • Physical performance

When tissues receive high levels of oxygen the body will reduce muscle fatigue and exhaustion, increase stem cell activation and help regenerate all processes.

  • Cognitive performance

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is documented to reduce brain fog and improve mental focus, clarity and stamina, it’s used best to optimize training and sharpen the senses.

Why shorten the recovery time after intense workouts when you can enjoy the process?

Recovery is mandatory.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy sessions inside the OxyNova 5 improve circulation and can help you treat chronic muscle pain or acute injuries.

Using mild HBOT as part of an active recovery program will optimize your performance and reduce the risk of re-injury.

Recovery should not be a race against time.

Even the most careful professional or recreational athletes can sustain injuries, what matters more is the recovery.

For sports professionals, the number one problem related to injury recovery is losing valuable time from participating in sports and sometimes athletes just keep training and playing which eventually leads to even more serious problems.

Oxygen fuels the cells to facilitate recovery

HBOT sessions help injured tissues absorb supplemented levels of oxygen which penetrate into blood, plasma, and cerebral fluids, to increase healing and circulation to the injured area.

In the right conditions, hyperbaric oxygen therapy may facilitate faster recovery and also improve the short and long-term development of injuries and concussions to help you resume normal functional activity.

Injuries, wounds, strains and sprains

The most common sports injuries are strains and sprains, which cause the development of swelling and edema (accumulation of excess fluid in connective tissue).

This reaction will compress blood vessels and restrict the vital flow of oxygen-carrying plasma and red blood cells to the injury site.

The necessary oxygen can maximize the efficiency and effectiveness of all reparatory processes, like decreasing the inflammation of injured areas, improving blood flow, and repairing damaged tissues.

HBOT facilitates the absorption of oxygen into the damaged tissue, which can enhance healing after the right number of sessions.

Concussions and post-concussion syndrome

A concussion is a traumatic brain injury very common in contact sports. When there’s an impact to the head (due to a hit, a blow, or a collision), the skull will bruise the brain tissue which will cause an inflammatory response or swelling of the tissue.

Breathing oxygen under pressure during HBOT treatments can help boost the body’s remarkable capacity of self-healing after a concussion.

The delivery of extra oxygen to injured brain tissues reduces swelling, inflammation, and the increased pressure in the brain.

HBOT sessions promote natural healing and can reduce the pain, nausea, cognitive decline, fatigue, and other aggravating symptoms of a traumatic brain injury.
