Oxygen Therapy for Athletes
South Africa’s cricketers were using it back in 2011 in Johannesburg against Australia, Cathy Watt used it for an achilles problem, Canterbury Bulldogs football players have used it, professional NBA, NHL, and NFL teams (including the New York Giants and the Dallas Cowboys) utilize hyperbaric chambers for player therapy, Novak Djokovic used it for recovery after the 2011 US Open – and that’s just a small example I found doing a quick Google search!
If the sport you play includes football, tennis, baseball, golf, running, jogging, athletics or any other kind of physical activity, you may benefit from Mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy.
The Hyperbaric chamber allows you, the athlete, to recover more quickly and improves general health, which leads to greater physical performance.
In a study involving soccer players in Scotland, the time it took to recover from joint, muscle, ligament, tendon, and other types of injuries was reduced by 70% when the players were treated with hyperbaric oxygen therapy along with physical therapy.
More and more athletes are taking control of their recovery and coming back stronger than ever using hyperbaric oxygen therapy. And you can too!
At Core we’ve been actively promoting the benefits of Mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy. Check out our blog here for more details on the technicalities of how it works, and what to expect when you’re in the chamber.
