Oxygen Treatment for MS
Oxygen treatment (HBOT / Oxygen therapy) is the therapeutic use of oxygen in a pressurised environment. Our barochambers were initially installed by people with MS, who found that it helped to relieve symptoms, such as fatigue, poor balance, mobility and poor bladder control. Although there is no cure for MS or other long-term health conditions, there are claims that it is effective in slowing down MS as well as other diseases.
Our barochambers can seat up to 8 people, including manual and some electric wheelchairs. During our one-hour sessions, you will be breathing in pure oxygen through a mask, which will increase the oxygen level in the bloodstream, encouraging the body to begin healing, generating new stem cells, repairing damaged tissues and limiting scar formation (known to prevent the restoration of the nerve function).
How can Oxygen Treatments help your MS?
Oxygen treatments have been shown to:
- Increase oxygen delivery to injured tissues and stop further tissue damage.
- Prevent and / or reduce swelling.
- Increase bone recovery and improve peripheral nerve regeneration.
- Improve the immune system response and blood vessel formation.
- Promote wound healing.
- Eliminate toxins and reduce effects from toxic substances.
- Increase muscular force and reduce fatigue and muscle spasm.
- Increase the effect of some antibiotics and relieve pain.
