Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is a procedure where the patient/person is made to sit/lie down in a chamber filled with 100% Oxygen at 2 to 3 times the normal atmospheric pressure. As more Oxygen is taken in at higher pressures, more oxygen gets dissolved in the red blood cells and also in blood plasma and gets distributed to body organs, even with the existing lower number of RBC.
Did you know that world famous football player Chistiano Ronaldo took up HBOT to recover from his knee injury and he was able to recover faster than any other player with similar injury? When athletes train or play, they stress their body and push it off the limits to become a winner. After intense training or a game, their bodies require adequate time to recover to get ready for another session.
