Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for Osteoporosis in Liverpool
Osteoporosis is a degenerative bone disease that creates a decrease in bone density and quality. As we get older, the prevalence of osteoporosis (bone loss) and sarcopenia (muscle tissue loss) increases.
Because the anatomy, metabolic profile, and chemical components of bones and muscles are so closely linked, they can be treated with optimal therapeutic mediations such as hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT). HBOT has been shown to promote and support tissue regeneration as well as treat bone damage.
How Does HBOT Help with Osteoporosis?
How Does HBOT
Oxygen is required for cell metabolism and repair. Animal studies have already shown that hyperbaric oxygen therapy increases the growth factor in animals. It has been demonstrated that hyperbaric oxygen therapy increases the production of collagen, a protein that fills the space between broken bones. HBOT also promotes the growth of capillaries in affected areas, which aids in the transport of nutrients to the bones.
Hyperbaric oxygen stimulates the production of cells that are essential for bone growth and healing, as well as removing old dead bone. Please note: HBOT is not a cure for COVID-19, but it has been shown to significantly improve patients' immune function.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Hip Osteoporosis Treatment:
A Case Study
Treatment: A Case
She had a total of 30 two-hour hyperbaric oxygen therapy sessions. Her pain was relieved over the course of her treatment, and she became asymptomatic after a month. She also discovered that her range of motion had completely recovered. A subsequent MRI after the hyperbaric oxygen therapy revealed normal bone structure readings.
