Fibromyalgia is a condition that causes chronic pain, but research suggests treatment is possible with high-pressure oxygen. Roughly one in 70 Americans will be affected by fibromyalgia and, unfortunately, the condition is incredibly difficult to diagnose and treat.
Fibromyalgia can be caused by head trauma, a neurological infection, or even severe emotional distress. Symptoms of fibromyalgia typically include chronic pain, fatigue, memory loss, and mood swings.
A study conducted by Tel Aviv University found that women with fibromyalgia chronic pain significantly reduced – or even eliminated – their use of pain medicines following the hyperbaric oxygen treatment.
The researchers uncovered that the underlying factor for fibromyalgia is the disruption of the brain mechanism that processes pain. Lead researcher Dr. Shai Efrati said, “As a physician, the most important finding for me is that 70 percent of the patients could recover from their symptoms. The most exciting finding for the world of research, however, is that we were able to map the malfunctioning brain regions responsible for the syndrome.”
Hyperbaric oxygen chambers expose patients to pure oxygen and are commonly used to treat patients with embolisms, burns, carbon monoxide poisoning, and decompression sickness…Read More
Hyperbaric Healing Institute provides state-of-the-art hyperbaric oxygen therapy. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is a medical procedure that involves the patient being placed in a completely enclosed chamber in which the atmosphere is controlled and the patient is able to breathe pure 100 percent oxygen. This level exceeds atmospheric pressure. The hyperbaric process places oxygen in places within the body at a cellular level, and also where the circulation might be blocked. HBOT therapy is not painful and it is not an invasive procedure. HBOT therapy can be used in conjunction with other medical treatments as part of a patient’s treatment plan. Learn More
