Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) treatments are used to treat a wide variety of issues, both physical and mental. Conditions often treated with this method include emergencies like carbon monoxide poisoning as well as orthopedic conditions like thermal burns. Hyperbaric Centers of Texas is the authority on oxygen treatments in Dallas, TX. Their patients include several athletes looking for recovery and rejuvenation for their various injuries.
Recently, HBOT treatments have become increasingly popular with athletes because these treatments can help reduce pains from injuries and help increase rehabilitation times. In addition to these benefits, oxygen treatments also help professional and recreational athletes by:
- reducing scar tissue formation
- improving healing processes
- reducing pain/swelling
- preventing hypoxia (or lack of oxygen)
At Hyperbaric Centers of Texas, we understand that a speedy recovery for an injury or surgery is important to athletes. Your sport is your passion and perhaps even your livelihood, so protecting your body against injury is tantamount to being successful at what you do. But no matter how careful you are or how many precautions you take, injury is still a risk you take every time you engage in your sport. Luckily, if you do sustain an injury while playing (or practicing), oxygen treatments can help you heal.
Sports injuries are serious matters that should never be ignored or put off. The longer an injury goes without treatment, the more likely a serious injury will occur. Our medical professionals at Hyperbaric Centers of Texas recommend that athletes begin oxygen treatment within the first 24-48 hours of their sports injury. This ensures that all the benefits of oxygen therapy will effectively begin to work on the injury.
