Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is effective for joint pain in patients based on data from multiple, validated clinical measures. Using hyperbarics can also help arthritis.
Exposure to mild hyperbarics is effective in decreasing levels of reactive oxygen species over produced in arthritis.
Arthritic joints are characterized by hypoxia cause by an increased oxygen demand and decreased blood triggered by the increased intraarticle pressure.
Making mild hyperbarics effective in reducing reactive oxygen species levels over produced during arthritis.
