Patients receiving HbOT treatments significantly improved their cognitive and neurological skills.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HbOT) and strokes

HbOT has shown promise as a viable treatment option for patients recovering from a stroke.

HbOT is a non-invasive, drug free therapy administered in a pressurised chamber.

During treatment sessions, patients breathe 100% oxygen at a pressure greater than normal atmospheric pressure.

The procedure serves to boost the concentration of oxygen in the blood, which can stimulate the creation of new blood vessels and improve healing in the brain’s afflicted areas.

As an alternative treatment, HbOT for stroke recovery has the potential to improve:

  1. Cognitive and neurological functions
  2. Reduce inflammation
  3. Boost neurogenesis
  4. Improve overall quality of life

Additionally, HBOT is a non-invasive, drug free therapy with no severe adverse effects.

Studies have consistently demonstrated the efficacy of HbOT for stroke recovery in addressing neurological deficits.

Please Note: Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy complements conventional treatments. We do not recommend it as a replacement. If you are unsure, please consult your doctor.

What are the benefits of HbOT for stroke recovery?

Many studies have found HbOT for stroke recovery can considerably alleviate the neurological defects caused by strokes, as well as improve the quality of life for stroke survivors.

The research on HbOT for stroke recovery

According to a study published in PLOS ONE, stroke patients who underwent HbOT for stroke recovery protocols exhibited substantial improvements in cognitive and neurological skills.

In addition, research featured in the Journal of Nuclear Medicine suggests that HbOT for stroke recovery can enhance the identification of hypometabolic areas in the brain, thereby optimizing diagnosis and treatment planning.

Findings from a study in the Journal of the American Osteopathic Association have also indicated that HbOT for stroke recovery may increase neurogenesis, or the creation of new brain cells. This significantly contributes to the recovery process following a stroke.

Furthermore, a separate study published in the journal ‘Stroke Research and Therapy’, found that HbOT for stroke recovery can help to reduce the size of a brain lesion caused by a stroke and improve the quality of life as a whole for stroke patients.

The research involved a controlled trial of 120 stroke patients. The group chosen to receive HbOT treatments demonstrated considerable improvement in neurological functioning when compared to the control group.
