Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy as a Treatment for Fibromyalgia

Written By Total Health Center on September 21, 2018

You may suffer from fibromyalgia. 

If you don’t, chances are, you know someone who does. 

As the most common pain disorder in the United States, fibromyalgia claims over 5 million people, mostly women, as sufferers. 

Fibromyalgia is usually characterized by fatigue and widespread joint and muscle pain, but there’s no standard lab test to detect it. Sufferers may display a myriad of symptoms, making it notoriously difficult to diagnose — and treat.

Typical symptoms can include:

  • Tender points body-wide
  • Pain
  • Fatigue
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Focus and memory issues
  • Depression and/or anxiety
  • Morning stiffness
  • Tingling and numbness in extremities
  • Headaches
  • Gastric problems
  • Problems urinating

No matter what symptoms you’re experiencing, you’ll want to find a way to minimize them — fast — so you can reclaim your life.

The Non-Invasive Fibromyalgia Pain Treatment

Until recently, many fibromyalgia sufferers were stuck using a side-effect-laden cocktail of drugs to try and ease their symptoms.

A recent study has shown that a new treatment, hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT), provides significant relief for many of the symptoms of this disorder.

HBOT Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) uses increased pressure and the movement of gases to create an ideal internal environment for healing.  Small increases in pressure have shown tremendous effects on human physiology when paired with breathing increased oxygen.

Injured or compromised tissues require increased oxygen to heal. HBOT helps this process by increasing the amount of oxygen to your blood by pushing plasma into capillaries and surrounding tissue. Increased oxygen in the plasma helps grow new, healthy tissue and a hyperbaric environment could deliver this oxygen-rich plasma throughout your body.
