Hyperbaric Therapy reduces pain following nerve injury

January 4, 2014

This animal study induced sciatic nerve injury through chronic constriction. They measured inflammatory markers and then followed up with Hyperbaric oxygenation therapy. The results demonstrated an immediate pain relief following the procedure with repetitive applications giving more long-acting relief. These results correlated with the positive changes seen in inflammatory markers and reinforce the use of hyperbaric therapy for pain and inflammation, following nerve injury.
