Inflammation & Hyperbarics

Occasional increases in inflammation are key for the body to properly repair during physical injury and infection, but research has shown that systemic chronic inflammation (also known as SCI) can lead to diseases that represent the leading causes of disability and mortality worldwide. These conditions can include cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes mellitus, chronic kidney disease, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and autoimmune and neurodegenerative disorders. Important medical discoveries have concluded that the immune system and chronic inflammatory processes can be connected to more than 50% of all deaths worldwide each year.

Chronic inflammation can damage healthy cells, tissues and organs and may cause damage to the DNA in previously healthy cells. In addition to contributing to the development of an illness, chronic inflammation can also be a symptom – in autoimmune diseases like lupus or rheumatoid arthritis. Chronic inflammation can also result from untreated injuries or illnesses, from exposure to chemicals, pollutants, and other environmental toxins. A person’s lifestyle can also make them more prone to developing chronic inflammation that leads to disease.

Hyperbaric therapy has been demonstrated to substantially reduce inflammation throughout the body. It drives increased levels of oxygen into the body, which travels through the plasma, subsequently reducing inflammation and pain.
