Hyperbaric Treatment for Athletes

Did you know that hyperbaric oxygen therapy is beneficial in treating sports injuries in professional and amateur athletes? Sports injuries can lead athletes sidelined for weeks and months, and many athletes return to their sports before their bodies have fully healed. This can lead to a reinjury and the need for additional treatment and time away from the game. Hyperbaric treatments with our Joplin Missouri chiropractor at Skaggs Chiropractic LLC can help you heal faster.

Benefits of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy involves lying in a hyperbaric chamber for a certain period of time. During this time, the oxygen enters your lungs, soft tissues and even in your blood plasma. The increase in oxygen helps your injured muscles and soft tissues heal so that you can get back to playing your favorite sports and maintaining your conditioning, muscle tone and flexibility.

  • Can Promote New Growth of Blood Vessels
  • Decreases the Symptoms of Depression and Anxiety
  • Improves Immune System Function
  • Improves Sleep and Mental Clarity
  • Increases Circulation Throughout the Body
  • Oxygen Penetrates into the Blood Plasma and Hemoglobin to Speed Healing
  • Reduces Inflammation and Swelling
  • Reduces the Recovery Time for Many Types of Injuries
  • Reduces Post Workout recovery Times

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy with our Joplin Chiropractor

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy with our Joplin chiropractor involves entering our hyperbaric chamber where we can increase the oxygen levels of the air to between 90 and 100 percent and carefully control the air pressure in order to maximize the oxygen saturation of your soft tissues. When your soft tissues, muscles and blood are saturated with oxygen, your body is able to heal faster, and once you are healed from your injury, you can receive periodic hyperbaric chamber treatments to help you recover after strenuous workouts and games.
